We are currently doing a number of projects using Cinema 4D, our favourite 3D imaging and animation software. One of the great things about the software is the active user community and the large number of plug-ins available.
One of my recent new favourites is Xbreaker. This plugin enables you to fracture objects in 3D. The developers of Xbreaker, Pariah Studios, set up a little contest to encourage people to experiment with the software.
I had a little play with the Engine Creative logo and, lo and behold, my 6 second submission was declared the winner! Not bad for a first time effort.
