Cinema 4D R8 Xpresso

In issue 77, we took version 8 of Cinema 4D for a test-run, resulting in a verdict of four and a half out of five. One thing that came out of our review was the realisation that Xpresso, a superb tool for generating relationships between objects, is probably the new iteration's biggest single feature. Unfortunately, it's also likely to be the one users neglect the most. After all, unlike the new interface features, modelling tools and enhanced animation, it's not immediately apparent what Xpresso can do. An awful lot, as it turns out.

This tutorial will take you through the Xpresso workflow and show you just how simple it is to use. Creating your own Xpresso expressions is no more difficult than mastering drag-and-drop. Don't believe us? Then try it for yourself.
