Creating movement and interactions can be important for those working in medical visualizations, illustrating drug interactions, or using 3D in other scientific fields. Often the cells will be required to interact, to split, or move along specific pathways.

In this CINEMA 4D tutorial, we'll go through a few simple scenarios using some of CINEMA 4D's powerful tools. We'll use Cloner objects to create a cell division and use Thinking Particles to achieve a similar effect over a larger scale.

We'll also talk about populating the scene with a variety of cells that all have procedural motion and look at how we can destroy a cell using Metaballs. We'll also build a blood vessel cross-section and animate different kinds of cells flowing along.

By the end of the training, you'll have a much better idea of some of the tools you can use to achieve similar effects in your own projects.
