I'm back with yet another way to create a 2D effect in 3D fast & easy using Cinema 4D! In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how to recreate the popular cel animation style paint stroke/splash effect you see in a lot of 2D animations using Cinema 4D without third party plug-ins. The workflow I'll demonstrate is super flexible and applicable to achieving a bunch of different cool 2D paint stroke looks for revealing an object, writing on text, or painting on screen.

In addition to this paint stroke style, be sure to check out Matteo Forghieri's C4DAPT Challenge winning entry ( for a really genius method on how to create a different type of streak that is produced from an actual object!
