Cinema 4D R18 - Voronoi Fracture, New MoGraph Feature

With the new Voronoi Fracture, you can fracture and break apart 3D objects, all in Cinema 4D R18, without the need for any external plug-ins. With the Voronoi Fracture, you can break objects into thousands of pieces, then use R18 MoGraph Effectors to displace, disperse, and animate the pieces. You can even apply the Voronoi Fracture to hierarchies of 3D objects, such as 3D extruded text with multiple materials. Check out the video above to learn all about this new feature, and take a look at the renders below to see the Voronoi Fracture used in combination with other updates to R18!
