Spinning Objects Along One Axis Using Dynamics in Cinema 4D

In a response to a question I was asked on Vimeo about how to spin objects on a single axis using dynamics, I go over a couple ways you can achieve this effect so the dynamics rotation looks realistic and can interact with real world physics and gravity.  First, I’ll show you how to get a cube to spin on it’s edge and then show how to slow it down to a stop and topple over.  Then I’ll demonstrate how you can get your logo or text have a cool, dramatic, and energetic spin reveal using dynamics on a logo made with Text Edge FX.

  3. Hey Great Tutorial! While I was messing around in the collision tab and I found that changing the shape to “Box” instead of the default you don’t need a connector object, assuming the axis is centered properly. Also messing with the size increment gets you some interesting results. Thanks again for sharing!
