The man who does not stop giving!!! Frigging loving bendy limbs! Trying to get my beaver to tail flap. Im having 1 issue...sometimes when i make the deformers my tubes go all out of whack. Am i missing a step or building my toon wrong? Thank you so much for all your passion and work and of course for sharing 🙌😊

Thanks, great use of the Camera Deformer! If you're worried about messing up your work by accidentally changing your camera angle, just create a camera only for the deformer which is at the correct angle and pipe that into the Camera selection in the deformer. Then put a protection tag on that camera and use a separate camera for rendering.

The fact that you always have more usefull deformers to show is awesome! Thanks E.J.!

Really nice tut as usual, thanks for sharing !
The benefits of your approach is that you can entirely art-direct the smearing effect so that's pretty cool !

Awesome models you make! Really love it. Do you make the model in Zbrush and then in c4d or do you make a model like that frog in c4d?

another solution would be to clone the object, then add a step effector with time offset. more accurate but less controllable ;)
