What is the X-Particles Challenge?

The X-Particles Challenge is a competition designed to inspire creativity using MAXON's Cinema 4D and Insydium’s X-Particles.

X-Particles is a full-featured particle and VFX system for Cinema 4D developed by Insydium.

It's fun to play with and feels as easy to use as MoGraph. Find out more about X-Particles here.
