Volumentric emission shader

Nikolaus Gradwohl2016-03-14T05:21:52+01:00

For this animation I have used an emission shader in a volumetric material for the first time. I added the shader on top of a volume scatter and a volume whatever shader and used a gradient curve to modify the density values for the emission shader a bit.

The input for the density function is a Point-Density Texture which is connected to a particle system.

The results aren' t quite as I expected them (which is kind of a recurring theme in my blender experiments :-) ) But I really like how it looks.

Exploding Torus

I made another animation featuring the explosion modifier. This time i used a torus as the base mesh.

The particles are influenced by a texture-force field using a colored cloud texture. To make the shards better visible I used a solidify modifier after the explosion modifier.

For this animation I used an explode modifier to destroy a subdivided ico-sphere

keyed particles

I made a particle system that wanders through different stages of beeing influenced by forcefields. I used 3 different particle system each influenced by a different type of forcefield and a keyed particle system to blend between them

Texture forcefield experiment 10 - smoke curl

For this Texture Forcefield experiment I used a texture field in curl mode to influence some smoke

Texture forcefield experiment 9 - voronoi field smoke

Nikolaus Gradwohl2016-02-24T05:52:18+01:00

For this Texture Forcefield Experiment I used an Voronoi texture in a forcefield to influence the smoke from a smoke simulation. I rendered the scene using blender 2.77 testbuild 2 to give the new cycles GPU smoke rendering a try. To my surprise rendering smoke on the GPU hat far less noise than rendering it with the CPU using the same settings. Maybe thats just because its a testbuild.

Texture forcefield experiment 7 - hair particles

Nikolaus Gradwohl2016-02-18T04:30:05+01:00

For this Texture Forcefield Experiment I used a moving voronoi texture to influence some hair particles

Texture forcefield experiment 6 - colored clouds

Nikolaus Gradwohl2016-02-16T04:05:37+01:00

For this experiment I used a colored cloud texture to move particles placed on a thorus

Texture forcefield experiment 5 - stucci curl

Nikolaus Gradwohl2016-02-15T05:04:41+01:00

For this texture forcefield experiment I used a stucci texture and set the texture forcefield to curl mode

Texture forcefield experiment 4 - curl

Nikolaus Gradwohl2016-02-12T06:21:15+01:00

For this experiment I used a voronoi texture in a texture-forcefield again, but this time the type is set to "curl"
