Cinema 4D R17 - Updates to the Meta Ball Object

The Meta Ball Object got some really useful updates for Cinema 4D R17. You can now create Meta Balls from ANY object easily, using Meta Ball Tags. This includes updates to Metaball tag settings and object settings in C4D R17, as well as a full Metaball tutorial for Cinema 4D. This also covers setting up a Cinema 4D R17 Metaball animation from scratch.
