shell break

For this animation I used two nested spheres and only the outer one has a solidify and a fracture modifier applied

curve fracture

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-01-28T06:23:29+01:00

For this animation I tried to apply the fracture modifier to a beveled curve. The fracturing worked quite well, but unfortunately cycles isn´t able to render the resulting shards. So I copied the curve before I break it and converted it to a mesh.

This is my second experiment with the blender fracture modifier testbuild. This time I used the solidify modifier before the fracturing. I also used objects with smooth normal vectors to test the fix normals function - not perfect but works quite well

I recorded a new song only using bitwig-studio devices this weekend

Not Troubled By The Rain

trigonometric waves

I wrote a sort new processing sketch that uses about 20 lines of code to create trippy slow moving wave patterns by using the sine- and cosine-functions in processing.

fracture modifier test

This is my first testanimation with the fracture modifier testbuild by scorpion81. So far it´s nothing that couldn´t have been created with the cell fracture addon, but the speed of the modifier has totaly blown me away! ITS SO FAST! The fracturing is done before you can blink an eye! Expect more experiments to come :-)

You can download the testbuilds from Scorpion81´s blenderwiki userpage

you can download the blend file here To run the blend file you need a testbuild of blender that contains the fracture modifier

freestyle btrace

I wanted to test how well freestyle works with curves in cycles so I made a particle system and traced them using the bTrace addon. Works pretty well :-)

I recently discovered the push/pull and the random transform functions in blenders object/transform menu and used them to create this animation

New Song - You Might Still Exist

I recorded a dub track featuring my Yamaha B55 - recorded and mixed using Bitwig-Studio

for this animation I made some boxes dance around a curve
