particle emitting particles - tutorial

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-06-03T06:35:07+02:00

my recent blender experiments with particles that emit particles sparked a lot more interest than I thought they would. I received a lot of requests for a tutorial - so here it is.

What can you learn from this tutorial?

In this tutorial I show how to use an object as a particle instance and make that object a particle system itself.

Why do I need that?

U can use this for all sorts of cool stuff like organic structures made of particles, flowers, fireworks, ... Here is a screenshot of the final animation we will create in this tutorial

particle particle tutorial

How is it done?

first we need an object to emit a basic particle system, so lets add a simple ico-sphere and add a particle system. Set the start and end frame to 1 and make sure the particles live through your whole animation. Also set the number of particles very low, because these will be the emitters for the second particle system.

lots of particles

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-06-02T06:59:20+02:00

for this animation I used a particle system with 200000 particles

spiral grow

This is another particle system that emits particles. This time the particle instance are quads that get an initial rotation speed.

for this animation I used a particle instance modifier on an icosphere that is working as an emmitter for another particle system.

dead particle structure

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-05-22T06:32:27+02:00

I made another animation using a 3D structure built by dead particles in blender. This time the emitter is a icosaeder (aka isosphere) instead of a hexagon

I made a particle system using larger tiles that move along a curve
