Graphics

On the move!

With the Cinema 4D MoGraph toolset, motion graphics artists can sink their teeth into a palette of powerful tools that make it easy to create everything from flying logos to abstract effects. Clone numerous objects and create extruded text with just a few simple clicks. Add Effectors to the mix and put everything in motion, and much more - often without creating a single keyframe! All this is perfectly integrated into Cinema 4D and offers a fast and easy workflow. All functions are completely interactive and non-destructive.

Cloner

At the heart of MoGraph is a powerful yet simple Cloner tool. You can easily create live copies of any object - arranged along a line, circle, grid, object or spline.

Object clones can be placed along points, edges, polygon centers or randomly across the surface of an object. Adjust keyframe parameters to modify clone count, spacing and more. Use other objects in MoGraph to easily create extruded text, fracture and extrude spline-based logos, displace objects in real-time and more. Each object performs its own invaluable function for motion graphics artists, and each can be fully controlled by MoGraph Effectors. Effectors can be applied to almost any MoGraph Generator to effortlessly bring your MoGraph creations to life. Adjust clones mathematically with the Formula Effector or apply the frequency spectrum of an audio file using the Sound Effector. 17 different Effectors can be used in any combination to offer countless animation possibilities.

Shader Effector

The Shader Effector primarily uses a texture's grayscale values to transform clones. To do this the texture needs to be projected on to the clones.

Sound Effector

The Sound Effector transforms audio into animation by mapping the amplitude at specific frequencies to clones.

Spline Effector

The Spline Effector takes the clones and arranges them on a spline. The first clone at the start of the spline and the last clone at the end of the spline.

Delay Effector

The Delay Effector ensures that the effects of other Effectors with regard to position, scale and rotation do not begin abruptly but with a delay.

Voronoi
Fracturing

Non-destructive destruction

With the new Fracture Voronoi object you can tear down walls. Systematically shatter any object into procedural fragments using virtually anything to control the distribution of the shattered pieces. Create artistic procedural geometry using splines, polygon objects or particles. Fracture Voronoi is always live which means you can change elements at any time. As a native MoGraph object it works seamlessly with Dynamics and all the effectors and falloffs you love.

Dynamics

Dynamics System for Stunning, Realistic Motion

MoDynamics is based on the proven Bullet physics library and now you can also use MoGraph's powerful Effectors to add dynamics for amazing realism. Set simple parameters like mass, bounce, gravity, friction and more and let MoDynamics do the work. Create breathtaking, realistic motion every time.
