Effex 2.0 for Cinema 4D
Developer Samir Kharchi has released Effex 2.0: a major update to his effects plugin for Cinema 4D. The new Effex is a modular, object-oriented framework inside of Cinema 4D that offers a variety of effects to be modelled, animated, simulated and rendered. Each object acts on its own and offers a certain functionality to extent the framework or existing functionality.
Its repertoire covers a wide range of features (but is not limited to these) from volumetric modeling to fluid simulation.
The whole framework is highly multi-threaded (so it uses all CPU cores where possible) and due to the modular approach you can intuitively control the quality and performance of your simulations simply by adding/removing objects.
Furthermore the pipeline allows to incorporate physical-based as well as parametric, non-physical simulations and still let them interact in a self-contained system (while time and space being an integral part) that is still artist oriented.
Effex 2.0 is available now for Windows and Mac OS X. It comes bundled with Navié’s Plants plugin, and costs €299 (around $395). There is also now a free watermarked Personal Learning Edition of the software. More videos here and Download Effex 2.0 for Cinema 4D PLE here
