There was a nice tutorial by Nick at
Here is my try with some basic light settings in R15.
I did not use any photoshop and I am still quite happy

you can try changing particle settings
and vibrate tag settings to get different variations.
Some testing with AR-Media Augmented Reality free plugin.
It has some limitations but it´s perfectly cool
for testing your 3d models in Cinema 4D
with a marker paper for free.
What you need is just Cinema 4D, printer and webcam.

Obj Sequence Importer plugin
ObjSequenceImporter is a Cinema 4D 4D R13/14/15 plugin developed
in order to help user to import animated Wavefront Obj Sequence and use it together with
Blender Fluid Dynamics but you can use it also with other 3D software compatible with this format.
It´s pretty simple to use and it works very good and
stable. buy plugin here
Now there´s no need to buy Realflow if you want to make
simple liquid simulations for Cinema 4D. Just use
Blender and only make simulation with Blender and
import obj sequence back into Cinema 4D. You can model
all objects needed in simulation with Cinema 4D and
export them into Blender then just make simulation
setup with simulation tools and export obj sequence
into Cinema 4D.
It might not be as versatile as Realflow but you can get
some quite decent simulation results after few tries with
simulation settings. Typically you will get errors with
simulation running too fast when pouring liquid or
have too low mesh resolution or don´t have correct
collision with obstacle object like glass.

Note the speed is 0.5
and Real World Size is
You can try add more subsivisions
but it can crash Blender so you
can just leave it to zero.
From Cinema 4D to Blender. Export scale is one meter.
