Working with X-Particles.
by Gene Hollister (Executive Producer/Director 808, Inc.)
I had a chance to discuss the coolest new particle system for C4D with one of 808's motion artist, Glenn Marshall and 808's design director, Fabian Aldama. It's called X-Particles by INSYDIUM, Ltd. Glenn explains: "It's not just limited to particle animation, X-Particle’s powerful and flexible system is perfect for fluids, gaseous, organic and abstract geometry. For any given scenario or brief - there’s always something creative and exciting that can be achieved."
808's Design Director, Fabian Aldama added:
"Combine it with the advanced Arnold ray tracing renderer by Solid Angle and you get breathtaking results."
No surprise that it's being used by over 300 major studios like ILM, Framestore, MPC, The Mill and Sony Pictures.
INSYDIUM defines X-Particles as the most fully featured, advanced particle simulation and rendering environment for MAXON’s Cinema 4D.
They're not kidding. X-Particles has quickly become one of 808's favorite tools. Be sure to check back as we'll be adding more X-Particle projects soon.
