    1. I’ve got a tutorial coming very soon on that mate, stay tuned;) you can see exactly how I did this one with the project file from our patron page, use the motion camera;) btw, we’ve just launched a brand new website with loads of cg resources cgshortcuts.com thanks for watching!

  1. Hello, I’m using X-Particles 2.5 and I don’t see follow surface modifier. Is there a way around this or is it called something else? Thank you.

  2. Here a setup I have been struggling with.
    I tried a few different ways, see below:

    1) I have particles moving over a mesh, constraint with follow surface and leaving spline trails

    2) Eventually I want to animate the mesh underneath, a talking and moving character, but I want to stick the trails to the mesh while the trails are being created an while the character is moving around.

    – Problem is it needs to be procedural not happen after the splines are all created.

  3. I remember watching this tutorial when it first came out and I didn’t have C4D yet but wanted to get it. I’ve been a year with C4D now, roughly and I just picked up and am learning XP, and now here I am again. 🙂

    Thanks for creating and sharing this tutorial with us. A fun thing I did with it, was turn it dark purple and made a creep tumor in the center. Fun idea for anyone that likes StarCraft 2! 🙂

    Edit: One issue I ran into, was the Max limit for emission. You put it to 100 but I couldn’t see it there in mine at all, anywhere, so I had to make some adjustments. I ended up doing a Shot for emission and lowered that number, plus the branches really low. I think roughly around 10 and 30’ish, respectively.
