Wow, this is simply great. I just watched the movies on his website and i’m still stunned. Finally we can cache Thinking Particle data to disk and scrub through the timeline. Sweeeeeeeeet…. Thanks to Michael Auerswald !!!
from the official site
TP Partio is a plugin for Cinema 4D R13 and above that will let you cache Thinking Particle particles, write them to disk, share them with other applications and read them back. It will let you take a snapshot of a current frame of your simulation and let it continue from there. It’ll let you play your sims backwards, while you can scrub through them on your timeline.*
