dissolving smoke

for this animation I've used a Turbulence force field to whirl some no gravity dissolving smoke around. you can download the blend file here

dissolving smoke

purple smoke

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-09-26T05:33:35+02:00

This animation was created by accident. I played with the new smoke/fire material of the object/Quick Smoke menu in blender 2.72-RC and accidentally set one of the parameters to -2. I have no idea how or why this works but its definitely worth exploring further.

light bounce

for this animation I used the rigid body physics simulation of blender. The only lightsource is the icosphere that bounces through the peg board

blender fluid experiment

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-04-17T08:10:27+02:00

I have created some animations using the fluid simulator in blender before but this experiment is the first one I really like. The material is a mixture of a glass node, a transparent node and a glossy node. The fluid was rendered with a resolution of 300 and a subdivision of 2. If you want to render it your self - be warned it takes some time.

For this animation I created a sequence with the breaking sphere and then a second one for the melting effect. Then I combined them using the video sequence editor, by reversing the first part and then playing the second part.

no gravity fluid simulation

This is a sphere of a transparent fluid in a low gravity setting, simulated using the blender fluid simulation

freeze

I made a new short animation. The freezing effect was created using a cycles material animation. The breaking part was created using the cell fracture addon and the bullet physics engine in blender 2.66

rolling hairy spheres

I made a blender animation featuring bullet physics and cycles hair rendering. In one video!

bullet physics in blender

This is my obligatory blender 2.66 bullet physics test video :-)

blender physics experiments - collision

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-10-23T03:51:57+02:00

For this part of my blender physics experiments I made a zero-gravity collision in slow motion

you can download the blend file here. Be warned! - the blend file is quite big this time (~ 150mb)
