AN experiment - Modulo jump

Nikolaus Gradwohl2017-03-23T06:02:45+01:00

For this animation I shifted the position of vertices based on the modulo value of their relative position on a circle

AN experiment - Shape Shift

Nikolaus Gradwohl2017-03-22T05:14:41+01:00

I used a loop to modify the vertex location of a cube mesh using the Animation Node Addon for blender

AN experiment - force field curl clusters

Nikolaus Gradwohl2017-03-21T06:16:49+01:00

For this animation I used a particle system influenced by a curl field and used the animation nodes cluster template to create the network connections

AN experiment - Building Blocks

Nikolaus Gradwohl2017-03-15T05:17:30+01:00

Since I haven't used the Animation nodes addon for a while, I started some new Animation Node experiments series - this time building blocks along a beziƩr-curve

animation nodes knot

Nikolaus Gradwohl2016-12-07T07:32:36+01:00

I haven't used the animation nodes addon in a while - so I dug it up and created a new animation with it. It took me a while to get it running on my box due to python installation absurdities but I finally got an 1.6 up and running in my blender 2.78 installation. For this animation I used an empty list of vectors and filled it with random vectors generated by a vector-wiggle-node. I then used these vectors to create curves. Since I wanted to create a knot I used a second loop that creates several of these splines and adds them into a spline list. This spline-list is then added to a new object and rendered.

flow field mesh

Nikolaus Gradwohl2016-11-25T04:13:12+01:00

For this experiment I used the turbulence forcefield with the flow parameter set to 2.0 to influence a set of particles using an emission shader to make them glow. I also used the "Mesh from Particles" template of the animation node addon to create the network.

In the compositor I used a defocus node to create the depth of field effect and a very slight lens distortion to add the dispersion color distortion at the edges of the image.

animation node cube cluster

Nikolaus Gradwohl2016-07-27T07:16:36+02:00

For this experiment I morphed a cluster of random locations into the mesh of a cube using the animation node addon for blender. The mesh of the cube is then turned into a group of splines using the "find close vertices node" and the "Splines from Edges" node.

animation node rotation

Nikolaus Gradwohl2016-07-19T06:56:24+02:00

For this animation I played with the rotation-wiggle node of the AN-addon in blender. To fade the wiggling rotation in and out I used an animation rotation node and a delay
