Animate Easy Dynamic IK Chains With Cinema 4D –

This tip uses: Joints, IK, SP turbulence, Skin, Loft

In this silent tip I use the standard particle effectors to animate a dynamic IK chain of joints. This is a really useful little trick for animating things like tentacles. You can view part 2 of this tip here

C4D silent tips & spoken tuts is an ongoing series of project breakdowns and short demonstrations showing techniques and tricks used for various different purposes. You will need some kind of knowledge of Cinema 4D to follow what is going on, but the idea is to show how quickly you can solve problems using the C4d toolset. Please let me know what you think or if you have any questions and especially if there is anything you would like me to cover. See more at
