How to make a Brick Wall Explode using MoGraph and Dynamics in Cinema 4D

In Cinema 4D, you can create 3D animation using Mograph, or you can add dynamics tags and let the simulations do the work. But how do you combine the two? In this video, I dig into exactly that topic, by going over how I created an animation where a brick wall stacks up using MoGraph techniques, and then explodes with realistic physic and gravity using Dynamics Tags! 

Topics include MoGraph animation, working with effectors such as plane and random, animating effector falloff, creating and extruding text, and additional Cinema 4D MoGraph Animation Tips and Tricks.
