Blender particle experiments - lemonade with bubbles

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-02-11T18:13:05+01:00

This is my second blender particle experiment. In this animation I also used the fluid physics mode, but this time I adjusted the buyoancy parameter to make the particles behave like bubbles in a glass of lemonade.

To stop the particles from leaving the lemonade I made it an collision object that has the kill-particles parameter activated

Blender particle experiments - fluid particles

Blender has a very nice particle system which I used a lot recently. But I only scratched the surface of the possibillities the blender particle system offers. So I desided to make a series of short videos to explore the blender particle features.

In my first short video I changed the particle type to 'fluid'. This is not to be confused with the fluid simulation but generates particles that behave like a hight viscouse liquid. I used simple spheres to render the particles here

hair particle system

And here is one more hairy ball rendered with blender. I tried to make it a bit anemone like by removing the gravity and adding a litte self turbulence to the particles, I also modified the strand rendering and added a blend texture to make the hair grow smaller towards the top and make it look more like an anemone

exploding sphere in processing

This processing-sketch features a sphere that dissolves into a 3D-particle system and explodes when you click on it.
