cube particles

I made a short animation using cubic particles and some force fields (again :-) )

stoneboids

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-12-16T06:09:41+01:00

I played with the particle info node and used the velocity direction and magnitude to create the color of the boid particles for this animation

for this animation I used a particle system and an ico spehere with a wireframe material as a collision object

metabubbles in red

I made a new version of my metabubbles animation this time in red/orange/yellow - becaus helloween

metabubbles red edition

metabubbles

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-10-28T05:57:29+01:00

For this animation I used a particle system that uses a metaball as particle object. The metaball system has a material with an SSS shader. The only light source is placed above the particle emitter

black particles

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-10-24T06:50:16+02:00

I made a new simple animation using the blender particle system. I animated the particle emitter along a bezier curve, added a no physics particle set and also clicked the show dead particles to prevent them from dissapearing. For the light setup I used a sky node for the "world" and a plane with an emission material on the upper right.

fiber grow

for this animation I played with the fiber-mesh addon. The leafs are generated using a particle system.

small particles experiment

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-06-23T05:44:55+02:00

Tonight I played a bit with the blender particles engine and created some nice effects using very small particles, since they are quite short I combined two of them in one video this time using the video sequence editor

you can download the blend file for the fire effect

or you can download the blend file for the explosion effect the explosion effect

but be warned they are both quite big this time!

bTrace Cell-fracture experiment

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-05-26T06:10:21+02:00

For this animation animation I combined a cell-fracture explosion and some particle traces using the bTrace addon. To make the shards of the plane move I placed a force field below the shards and turned the gravity off. The particles are not influenced by the force field, but by a turbulence field placed above the plane.
