For this animation I added a wave-modifier to a closed curve instead of a thorus.

Phase Shift

Nikolaus Gradwohl2019-06-13T03:31:14+00:00

I made a video for my track "Phase Shift" in processing.

The song is two lines playing the same melody, but with different loop lengths - shifting in and out of phase

The animation was generated from a wild combination of trigonometric and noise functions generating 7200 curve vertices that are slowly changing over time

blender freestyle sketchy line howto

Nikolaus Gradwohl2019-05-16T04:54:52+00:00

I was asked for a short description on how I achieved the sketchy look of the freestyle lines in my post from yesterday

so here it is:

I activated freestyle line renderings in the Render settings

in the View Layer section I set the LineStyle Strokes from Plain to Sketchy

and added a Spatial Noise Modifier in the Geometry Part of the LineStyle-Section

to make it less aggressive I reduced the Amplitude to 1

this turned the lines from this:

straight lines

into this:

sketchy lines

blender eevee with sketchy freestyle lines

Nikolaus Gradwohl2019-05-15T05:34:15+00:00

For this animation I used a freestyle lineset with a noise modifier to emulate a hand-drawn look

I like how it turned out, but I think I will have to make it less subtle the next time, especially when the finale video is running with 600px width like here :-/

tree animation with blender eevee and freestyle

Nikolaus Gradwohl2019-05-09T01:58:27+00:00

For this animation i played with the sapling addon and the eevee render in freestylemode using blender 2.80 beta

I created a tree and a separate foliage object and assigned it a material with an emmission shader to make sure it is evenly lit and creates a uniform color in the final render. Then I animated the camera location and the focal point to create the slider movement and the follow focus event and added a defocus blur in the compositor.

freestyle tree

I really like the cinematic feel of this small animation - if I find the time (hahaha) I work on this a little more and turn it into a music video
