Hello All,

I have basic knowledge of C4D R11.5. I am learnign it myself by online tutorials. I came to know that Xpresso and thinking particles are very powerful in C4D but I don't know anything about it. I tried some online tutorial but I didn't get it. I want to learn about them.

1. What is Xpresso and Thinking particles?

2. Difference between simple particles and thinking particles

3. What can I do with them? I mean what are uses of them?

4. How can I learn about them ? Beacause I am learning online, no one is here to help me

5. Is there any website from where I can learn from begaing?

Thank you,

Vipati

At the most basic level Xpresso takes inputs, performs operations, and gives outputs. It uses a node based system to do this where the left side of a node can accept various input data then perform some operation on that data and output various resulting data on the right side of the node.

Thinking Particles can be controlled using Xpresso. There are several dozen Xpresso nodes that are specifically for creating, modifying and killing thinking particles. Values from all particles (as well as each individual particle) are open to modification through Xpresso.

Xpresso is useful far beyond just Thinking Particles and I'd generally recommend becoming familiar with Xpresso before Thinking Particles.

Here's a great site for getting started:

Here are some more advanced resources for both:
