growing along an animated curve

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-10-30T06:22:58+01:00

For this animation I used an array modifier and made it follow a curve. To make things more interesting I added some shapekeys to the curve and added a noise modifier to the animation

particle grid glitter

Nikolaus Gradwohl2013-12-29T09:17:49+01:00

For this animation I turned a curve into a mesh and subdivided it several times. Then I placed particles of different sizes at the vertices and used a field to dissolve it

a branch in blender

This animation was inspired by the branch I drew last week. I used empties as hook elements on the bevel curves to make the curves grow. It´s the same technique I described in this tutorial in january last year.

crawl on a sphere

For this short animation I created a fluid particle system that crawls on a sphere in a no gravity setting and traced the particles using the btrace plugin

blender curve experiments - extrude and bevel

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-06-19T05:57:49+02:00

for this part of my blender curve experiments I animated the extrude and bevel parameter in combination with a solidify modifier

this is my day 19 project for 30daysofcreativity

blender curve experiments - bevel2

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-05-29T05:30:15+02:00

For this part of my blender curve experiments I made a surface using a cyclic bezier curve and a non-cyclic one and animated both curves using shape keys

unfortunately the surface is a bit unstable at the bottom.

for this part of my blender curve experiments I deformed two spheres using a beziercurve

For this part of my blender curve experiments I played with the bevel parameter. The beziercurves are animated using shapekeys

blender curve experiment - electricity

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-05-22T05:18:36+02:00

For this part of my blender particle experiments I hooked each vertex of a curve to an empty and animated it using a noise f-curve modifier
