Introducing Noise Falloff

We've just released Noise Falloff, a plugin for Cinema 4D - it's a handy new tool for adding noise to existing falloff shapes. You can use Noise Falloff in the falloff tab of Cinema 4D's Mograph effectors, many of the newer built in deformers, and all of our deformer plugins. It's an easy way to add a bit of randomness, rougher edges or an organic feeling to those effects.

It's available now, there's a demo to try out on the product page, and the video tutorial above will show you how to use it.

C4D Python Party: Absolute Falloff Width

This is a quick little script to help when animating Mograph effector falloffs in Cinema 4D. Usually when you make your falloffs bigger or smaller their width (the space between the red and the yellow lines) scales accordingly - but sometimes you want to keep that width consistent as you animate the falloff's size. That's what this script helps you with!

To install the script:
1 Download it here (it's a freebie)
2 Unzip it into your scripts folder (eg "C:\Program Files\MAXON\CINEMA 4D R15\library\scripts\" on Windows, or "/Applications/MAXON/CINEMA 4D R15/library/scripts/" on OSX)

To use the script:
1 Select the effector (or deformer that includes a falloff tab) you want to rig.
2 Run the script (click 'Script' > 'User Scripts' > 'consistentfalloffedgewidth').
3 Change the 'Falloff Width' value in the new Python script tag that gets added to your effector.
4 Animate your falloff's size or scale, and relax as your falloff's width is kept consistent automatically!
