MAXON - No Keyframes

For the release of Cinema4D R11.5 we were approached by Maxon to create a release animation.

Using the new features they built into R11.5 this short was orchestrated.

Clothsimulation for the deforming floor, rigidbodies and particles, xpresso work to dynamically drive the behaviour of objects,... NoKeyframes shows the procedural capabilities of Cinema4d and was created - just like the title implies - completely without any manual keyframe animation.

Subsequently a shot of the animation also ended up as the render test scene in the popular Cinebench benchmark.
