The easiest flag of all: WIND SIBLING By Ko Maruyama
The wind deformer on a plane primitive is probably the easiest way to create a flag in MAXON's CINEMA 4D.    There are several ways to accomplish a "flag" look, but the simple primitive shape of a plane and a standard wind (aka : flag) deformer working together provide an animation that even the newest user can understand.  Usually you would apply the deformer to the object, but there are other ways you can use it.

I've put together some still frames, but I realize that you can do this in 3 clicks.  A movie does help to bring it all together.  Below is today's version of the flag - - there may be 3 or 4 different 2 minute movies to cover here...

I've decided that the images are too many steps.  First of all, you should check yesterday's post about the standard deformer application if you haven't used a deformer before, then you will understand how this is different.

Or, just go through the movie below to see how the deformer can be used as a sibling to objects to make them all move together.
