Springs & Spline Dynamics in Cinema 4D Part 02: Floating Balloons

Here’s part 2 in my series of tutorials utilizing the combination of Spring & Spline Dynamics together  to get some really cool dynamic animation!  This time around, I’m going to go over how to use Springs & Spline Dynamics to make a floating balloon on a string, a bit of an upside-down setup featured in Part 1.  There’s two techniques I use to get this floating balloon effect:  First is showing how to float a balloon that is fixed or attached to a point or object, and the second is more of a free floating balloon setup.  If you know of any other techniques you know of, please share!  Enjoy!
