blender particle experiments - cells

For this image I used a very simple 1-frame particle system to generate the cell-wall.

blender particle experiments - 1.000.000 cubes

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-03-24T08:17:45+01:00

for this blender particle experiment I made a particle system containing 1000000 cubes

I didn't upload the blend file this time, because its very huge but easy to reporduce.

I added two cubes and a plane. The plane is a collision object One cube contains the particle system, the other one is used as a particle object.

In the emmision block set "Emit from " to Volume use Grid.

Set the resolution to 100 - et voila - 1000000 particles

I've also set the particle size to 0.01

This is a test-render aehm I meant teaser for my next short-film project

blender particle experiments - text

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-03-19T05:31:27+01:00

for this blender particle experiment I pixelized a text string using a remesh modifier and transfered It using a curve-guide force field.

blender particle experiments - particle tree

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-03-15T07:40:50+01:00

This tree is made from 4 particle emitters that are moved along a curved track. The particles are taken from a group and have a lifetime of 1.

blender particle experiments - light streaks

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-03-13T05:26:03+01:00

for this part of my blender particle experimenets I made some lightstreaks using a forcefield, that drags the particles along a curve.

blender particle experiments - frozen particles

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-03-06T05:02:24+01:00

for this part of my blender particle experiments I made a still image of particles frozen in an cube of ice. The image has been rendered with cycles - I really like the glass and metal materials.

blender particle experiments - displacement

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-03-05T06:16:52+01:00

For this part of my blender particle experiments I used a texture to change the displacement of the vertices and the speed of the particles that drive the explosion modifier.

This way you can make certain areas of a mesh bend outwards before you make them explode.

blender particle experiments - dancing little stars

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-03-04T09:11:58+01:00

for this part of my blender particle experiments I made some little stars dance - using a boid particle system

blender particle experiments - splash

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-03-02T06:19:53+01:00

for this part of my blender particle experiments I experimented a bit with particles as a dynamic paint brush - which is really cool and enables a whole range of new effects.

I also added a softbody object to have something that generates the splash
