dead particle structure

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-05-22T06:32:27+02:00

I made another animation using a 3D structure built by dead particles in blender. This time the emitter is a icosaeder (aka isosphere) instead of a hexagon

I used dead particles to build a helical structure

particle tiles

I made a particle system using larger tiles that move along a curve

parallax flowers

I just downloaded the processing pre-release 3.0a8 and tested it with a bunch of parallax flowers - because spring

keyed surface

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-05-18T06:38:19+02:00

For this animation I used pyroevils cubesurfer addon to create a surface from a keyed particle system. unfortunately the python api doesn´t update particle positions of a keyed particle system so there are a view workarounds necessary to get it work (see pyroevils post in the blenderartists forum for details)

hexagonal animated texture

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-05-15T10:47:23+02:00

For this animation I used a similar technique as in my growing-texture animation. I created an image sequence in processing and used it as an animated image texture in blender. I used a transparent material everywhere the texture has a black pixel. The texture is also used as a displacement texture to make the hexagonal tiles better visible

The processing code is based on one of my abstract art generators I have written in processing

torus fluid

I used a torus as a gravitational sink and as obstacle for a particle set, which was emitted from a slightly larger torus, for this animation.

SFZ to Multisample converter

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-05-12T08:15:06+02:00

I made some minor modifications to my sfz2multisample converter to improve it's stability if a section starts with a comment.

See the Sfz2Multisample-Projectpage for download links and a short instruction on how to use it

deflect particles

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-05-11T06:28:12+02:00

for this animation I used a similar setup as in my blog post last week, but instead of creating an iso-surface from the fluid particles I used the molecular addon and made sure they don't overlap.

growing texture

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-05-08T06:49:03+02:00

For this animation I used an image sequence to switch between a transparent and an opaque material in cycles.

To generate the image texture I wrote a processing sketch that animates black stripes growing from bottom to top at various speeds. (see below for the sourcecode of the processing sketch)
