Today I had some slight technical problem with my computer randomly shutting off due to overheating. I will probably be calling tech support. With that in mind I took it easy on my comp tonight . I decided that I would go through all of the effectors in cinema 4d and see what they do. I used a platonic as my shape to primitive to deform and just went through the list.
The hardest one to figure out how to use was the morph effector, which I still didn’t actually see substantial results with. The only other one I didn’t use was smoothing since I didn’t really have a dense enough and didn’t want to push my comp rendering that.
Still working on the animation from the other day but maybe this will help.
