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

animation node bubbles

Nikolaus Gradwohl2016-07-18T05:55:22+02:00

For this animation I used the AN-Addon vector wiggle node to animate a bunch of bubbles. The material is a combination of a transparent- and an emission-shader controlled by a fresnel-input node

animation nodes fold

Nikolaus Gradwohl2016-07-14T07:38:14+02:00

for this animation node experiment moved the vertices of a sphere using the wiggle node but made sure the node stayed on a spherical surface - which leads to a folding/crumbling effect

animation node vertex displace

Nikolaus Gradwohl2016-07-13T04:56:43+02:00

For this animation I used the animation node addon to displace each vertex of a icosphere using a vector wiggle node. The icosphere was rendered with freestyle enabled.

animation node location

Nikolaus Gradwohl2016-07-11T06:38:06+02:00

I used the wiggle vector node of the animation nodes addon in blender to offset the location of objects and scaled them to make sure they are placed on a sphere
