In short, the pressure parameter expands your object to make it appear inflated or deflated. The following video tutorial shows us how to create this simulated look using Cinema 4D native tools. The tutorial covers:

  • Activating the Collision Parameter
  • Working in the Soft Body Tab
  • Using the Pressure Parameter
  • Using the Graph Editor to Smoot Keyframes
