This is a follow-up tutorial to PART 1 vimeo.com/70779473/ of building a cluster of balloons in Cinema 4D r14 Studio, addressing some issues from the original recording, as well as playing around with some Aerodynamics.
In the first tutorial I used a "Transparency" channel for the balloon material and lit the scene with Global Illumination. In this video I re-approach the lighting and use an "Alpha" channel to significantly improve render times.
I also address the issue of connecting the strings to the balloons, thanks to an incredible solve suggested by Vimeo member "yader". Do yourself a favor and check out his tutorials on his Vimeo page. This guy has a ton of great quick tips that will blow your mind. vimeo.com/yader
