hey

Im currently in the process of making confetti burst into a scene and I need to know if it is possible to freeze the emitter in mid explosion and then reverse it?

thanks

Sarah

That sounds like something I would do in After Effects if possible.

thanks for the reply!

it needs to be done in cinema 4D so I was thinking someone must know if it is possible :/

After effects probably does do it but my project for uni is entirely in cinema 4D

Sorry, what I meant was render it off from Cinema 4D and then take the footage into After Effects to reverse the section I needed. I almost always take my renders from Cinema into After Effects to do some color correction/adjustment or add some things that I can't or don't want to do in Cinema.

Not enough coffee when I answered...

Are you using just the regular emitter, or thinking particles?

I cant use after effects really becuase I have a camera moving around a 3D city and the confetti will be falling while the camera is pointing to the sky and spinning around so the after effects wont be efficient enough to look real if you know what I mean.

heres the animation I am currently working on...







from 1.21 is where I am wanting the confetti to fall, freeze and then at 1.27 reverse

thanks

So will you be using the regular emitter or thinking particles?

I can't think of any way to freeze and reverse the regular particles without rendering them separately and then compositing them back in.

As far as thinking particles go, I'm not an expert...so there might be a way with them.

Is this ultimately going to be rendered as a quicktime or some other format?

Check out the plugin TP Partio. It enables caching of TP which then enables reverse, hold, etc.

Best,
Craig
