Day 2 of 30DaysOfCreativity 2013 - Particle Curves

Nikolaus Gradwohl2013-06-02T09:24:22+02:00

This animation was created with blender hair particles. I made the bottom size of the hair strands really big and animated the start value. This is also my Day 2 project for 30DaysOfCreativity

I have no idea why the end positions of the curve move when the start value is animated, but I like the effect.

for this animation I used my cycles wireframe material from (this post)[http://www.local-guru.net/blog/2012/5/18/wireframe-material-in-cycles] and an explode modifier. The mesh was created using a curve and a remesh modifier.

light particle trail

Nikolaus Gradwohl2013-05-27T06:24:06+02:00

For this animation I made a sphere bounce of a surface using the bullet physics engine of blender. The light trail was created using a particle system without gravity and a small light source as a particle

molecular experiment 6 - helix

Nikolaus Gradwohl2013-05-23T06:17:47+02:00

For this part of my molecular experiments I used 2 particle systems that follow a spiral to create a helix

You need to install the molecular addon from pyroevil to run the example.

molecular experiment 5 - meta particles

Nikolaus Gradwohl2013-05-21T07:01:51+02:00

For this molecular experiment I used metaballs for my particles you can download the blend file here You need to install the molecular addon from pyroevil to run the example.

molecular experiment 4 - fill

For this blender molecular experiment I activated only the self collition for the particles and made them fill a shape

molecular experiment 2

Nikolaus Gradwohl2013-05-15T06:10:58+02:00

This is my second experiment using the blender molecular addon by pyroevil The material was created using a Fresnel input node.

molecular experiment 1

Nikolaus Gradwohl2013-05-14T05:55:22+02:00

For this animation I used the awesome blender molecular addon by pyroevil. The material was created using the new cycles subsurface scattering node.

keyed particles

Nikolaus Gradwohl2013-03-23T12:04:26+01:00

I created a small figure using the skin modifier and used it as a target for a keyed particle system. The glowing effect was created using a glare filter in the compositor.

This is a sphere of a transparent fluid in a low gravity setting, simulated using the blender fluid simulation
