A still from the demo movie for Johannes Kollender’s free Wave Deformer plugin for Cinema 4D. Because of its privacy settings, we can’t embed the full movie here, but you can watch it on Vimeo.
The tool will create a realistic animated wave from any polygonal object. It’s based on a Python version created by Vidar Nelson of Creative Tools, but offers better performance with high-poly geometry.
Wave Deformer works in Cinema 4D R14 and R15 on Windows and R15 on Mac.
