How to Create and Animate an Umbrella Using Mosplines in Cinema 4D

In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how you can find a very handy use for the often ignored Cinema 4D Mospline object.  In this instance, we’ll use Mospline to create and animate an umbrella!  First I’ll set up our umbrella using a few Mosplines and a Loft Object.   Next, we’ll animate our umbrella using a Pose Morph tag.  If you’re not familiar with Pose Morph, be sure to check out my tutorial on how powerful it is!  Finally, I’ll show off some fun options inside Mosplines like the ability to have Mosplines be affected by particle forces like Turbulence and Wind.

If you have any questions, be sure to post it in the comments section and if you create anything cool using this technique, be sure to share it with me! Thanks for watching!
