Ice Blocks Into Glass Tutorial

Cinema 4d Tutorial

20 November 2013Under Tutorial

Ready for a cocktail?

In this tutorial I will create some ice blocks and let them fall out into a Martini glass. There will be some modeling with the noise layer on the displacement channel, some Mograph Cloner, and finally dynamics into a convex glass. Hope you find it useful, and that you can follow my english.


You can download the Cinema 4d Project and the Martini glass here above. I’ve inserted the Royal glass and even the Negroni glass, both of them are Png with alpha transparency so you can try with both of them and recreate the second example with bigger blocks of glass if you want. Try different ways and have fun!

If you deserve more Ice Blocks without spending extra time on modelling them you can purchase Daniel Couto’s Ice Machine on C4d Phototools!

The tutorial was inspired by a work for Martini that I did for D-wok.

      Thank you Gokhan.
      I don’t know the Turkish Raki. Is it good? I’ve to try it!
      I saw some picture on the web and for what I’ve seen you can start downloading a milk material, I think you can find one on the web. After that use the material as a base to recreate the Turkish Raki. Play with the Frasnel on the color channel and don’t make it pure white, I think that will help.
