Solid To Liquid – How to use multipass rendering

By | Blog | No Comments

This method can be used to create alpha channels for compositing in after effects for example.

Object Buffer 1 correspond to liquid object (Metaball & Bubble)
Object Buffer 2 correspond to solid object
Object Buffer 3 correspond to Object Buffer 1 + Object Buffer 2

Use the Material Luminance passe if you have activated cracked lava.

SOLID TO LIQUID: V1.5 New Features!

By | Blog | 11 Comments

Here is our new demo reel for Solid To Liquid Tool featuring new effects and animations made with the latest version v1.5. This is our biggest update to Solid To Liquid ever.

Geometry Integration


With this new feature you can use geometric objects such as ( sculptures, reliefs, character…). also offers you multiples parameters to easily control your animation. You no longer need keyframes to build out your animation, all transition parameters are automated. then you will be able to make adjustments that much quicker on a tight deadline.

You can choose between two modes in this new feature
  1. Normal mode: contrary to the “dynamic mode” this mode does not support “Bubble and Metaball object”,
    but it contain a few more new options.
    In this mode you have two types of transition (Linear & Fading).
  2. Dynamic mode: employs the same principle as “Text, Presets & Custom modes”.
    As its name suggests, it supports dynamic objects.

Normal Mode

Dynamic Mode

Solid To Liquid Tool – For CINEMA 4D

By | Tutorial | 32 Comments
n this Quick Tips, I demonstrate the use of Solid To Liquid Tool, showing how it can be employed using different parameters.

Solid To Liquid Version 1.5 Quick-tip

Solid To Liquid Tool

Allow you to easily create a transitioning effect of solid to liquid form and few other functionality.

  • Choose between three different shape modes which include text, preset, or custom.
  • Two different transitioning modes allowing you to set step or melt for the transition effect.
  • The “Auto Animate” option that creates animation without the use of any keyframes at all.

The Solid To Liquid Tool can also be used to create a demolition or destructive effect as well, using the same physics as the liquid effect.
