How to use the Jiggle Deformer for Cloth Simulations in C4D

“In this tutorial, I’m going to further expound on the virtues of the amazingly awesome Cinema 4D Jiggle Deformer and how you can use it for cloth simulations.  First, I’ll show you an example of things you can create like my metal cloth animation as well as how you can use it for more practical things like a cloth banner or flag as I’ll demonstrate in this tutorial.  By using the Jiggle Deformer falloff, I’ll discuss how you can use the falloffs and even weight maps to act like Cloth Belts so you can control which parts of your geometry get cloth like simulations applied to it and which don’t.  Jiggle deformer is just plain fun!  Enjoy!” – EJ Hassenfratz

352 Free Letterbox Templates for Video Editing (8K, 4K, HD & More)

Easily give your videos the cinematic cropping they deserve with these free high-res letterbox templates for video editing.

Despite having the ability to export footage in virtually any resolution, filmmakers and video producers are still limited to showing their work on screens with a very specific aspect ratios. Because of this, you need to export your footage with letterboxes if you want to view your footage in an aspect ratio that’s different than 16:9.

What Are Letterbox Templates?

Simply put, letterboxes are small bars that can be applied to your footage to give them an irregular aspect ratio while still retaining their 16:9 size. Letterboxes can be used to crop footage shot in 16:9 to a more cinematic 2.35:1. They can also be a great tool for pre-visualizing how your video will be cropped on an irregularly sized screen.

In the past if you wanted to drop letterboxes into your project, you had to either download a limited free template or create your own. These options aren’t ideal — so we created a future-proof pack full of letterbox templates for virtually every format in the world.
