cycles material animation test 2

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-04-13T06:46:11+02:00

This short animation is my second cycles material-animation test. This time I animated the IOR parameter of a glass material to make the letters go from nearly invisible to solid glass and then the mix parameter to turn it to a diffuse surface or metal

would make a nice effect for a film title

Face Distortion

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-02-08T05:26:51+01:00

For this animation I animated the smooth-modifier and set it to very extreme values. This completely distroyes the cube mesh in very intresting ways. The animation took 11h to render on my box - with is by far the longest render-time I had using blender so far

Mole hills in blender with dynamic paint

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-01-18T06:46:00+01:00

This animation was made using dynamic paint on a rectangular canvas. The brush is a invisible sphere that changes the weightpaint of a vertex group (used to remove the grass) and a displacement modifier (used to generate the mole hills).
