The first video in the CSTools series where I will go though how to use all of Chris Smith's endlessly useful, CSTools. Today we talk about the 3D Stroke. A Cinema 4D Tool he developed to emulate the Trapcode After Effects Plugin, 3D Stroke.

These are a series of experiments created in Cinema 4D using Thinking Particles, L-Systems and the UberTracer plug-in.
I've also created a couple of Thinking Particle tools for the effect at 0:15 called Gridify and tool for the effect at 0:32 called Spiralator. You can view the tutorial and down here: vimeo.com/simonrussell/gridify
This is a tutorial for two presets I created for Cinema 4D.
Gridify creates random 3D grid like structures and Spiralator adds spirals, sine waves or noise to a particles trajectory.
Download both presets here: dl.dropbox.com/u/1830495/Spiralator%20and%20Gridify.zip
You can see them in use here: vimeo.com/44871719
In this tutorial, I go though the process of lighting a scene with the Daylight CS Tool for Cinema 4D.
