dissolving icosphere

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-12-23T06:30:58+01:00

I recently watched a tutorial by tutor4u on how to make a dissolving blender material using a noise texture

I recreated the technique dissolving a ico-sphere instead of a suzanne you can download the blend file here

ocean slices

cube rotation experiment 1

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-12-14T05:47:29+01:00

I planned to model and animate a rubics cube for quite some time, but it turned out that animating the rotation is a lot harder than I expected it to be. After some (failed) experiments I found out that the trick is moving all the origins of the cubes to the center and using quaternoid-rotation for the animation.
