AN Experiment 2018 Test 1- curly noise

Nikolaus Gradwohl2018-04-13T08:05:08+02:00

I finally managed to fix all my python and cython version missmatch errors and started experimenting with a animation nodes 2.1 development branch - this is my first experiment using the vector noise node and the curly noise setup described in the brilliant blender.stackexchange.com answer by omar Ahmad

you can download the blend file here but be aware that the 2.1 branch of the Animation Node Addon is currently under heavy development so maybe the examples here won't work out of the box with a final version.

AN experiment - particle mesh deformation

Nikolaus Gradwohl2017-07-04T07:04:09+02:00

For this animation I created a particlesystem on a ico-sphere mesh that emits exacly one particle per vertex. Then I used the animation node addon to move the vertices of the mesh along with the corresponding particle. The particles are influenced by a curly noisefield.

AN experiment - mesh from particles

Nikolaus Gradwohl2017-06-12T05:20:03+02:00

For this animation I used the latest beta of the animation nodes 2.0 addon, to create polygons form particles using the KVTree nodes

Dynamic Paint particle growth

Nikolaus Gradwohl2017-04-12T05:50:44+02:00

For this animation I used a dynamic paint canvas on a plane that emits hair particles based on a wet map. I used another particle system as the dynamic paint brush

For this animation I used some fluid particles and created a surface using the cubesurfer addon for blender

AN experiment - force field curl clusters

Nikolaus Gradwohl2017-03-21T06:16:49+01:00

For this animation I used a particle system influenced by a curl field and used the animation nodes cluster template to create the network connections

twisted torus particles

I used the twisted torus shape of the Extra Objects addon in blender as an emitter for a particle sytstem

particle density volumetric material

Nikolaus Gradwohl2017-02-23T07:43:08+01:00

I made a volumetric material in cycles based on particle density. The particle set I used is influenced by a turbulence force field. I used a small ico-sphere as a particle object and added an emission shader. I noticed a pretty noticable offset between the particles and the volume material that changes over time - I'm not sure yet where that offset comes from, but I think it still looks pretty.

glowing plates

Nikolaus Gradwohl2017-01-11T05:49:31+01:00

for this animation I wanted some glowing panels to light up in a random order. So I created a particle set and used the particle index and compared it to the current frame index using a "less than" Node. Based on that comparison I switch between a diffuse- and an emmision-Shader by using the result of the comparison as the mix factor.

curl noise ring

Nikolaus Gradwohl2016-12-20T06:54:25+01:00

For this animation I made a ico-sphere follow a circular path while emitting particles. The particles have gravity removed from the field weight and use no velocity vector. The only reason they move is a turbulence forcefield with a curl factor of 1
