Animation Node experiment - transformation

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-11-18T08:04:50+00:00

for this animation I used two cellfractured objects and transformed one into the other

you can download the blend file here

For this animation I used two animation node trees. The first one animates the shards of the cube, the second one is responsible for the sphere shards. The nodes networks might look a bit complicated but the principle behind it is simple. The cube shards get translated outward, are rotated by a random amount and then scaled to zero. At the same time the shards of the sphere make the same movements in reverse.

to achieve the washed out look I rendered the freestyle lines on a separate renderlayer - blurred the image in the compositor and then used an alpha-over node to add the lines.

Animation Node experiment - Sound rainbow

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-11-16T06:29:29+00:00

For this experiment I used the sound visualizer nodes form the animation nodes addon I have been asked for tutorials a lot lately and so I added a view screenshots and descriptions to explain how I achieved the effect.

as usual you can download the blend file here

please add a comment if you like this longer format posts or if you have suggestions for future posts.

sound rainbow

the song I used for the animation is called "The Long Dawn - Part II" and can be found on soundcloud

To analyze the audio material you need a "Sound Bake" and a "Evaluate Sound" node. I also created a copy of the default cube for each bar I wanted in my animation using an "Object Instancer". The strenghts list and the object list are fed to a loop.

Animation Node experiment - icosphere grow

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-11-06T06:13:56+00:00

for this animation I animated the polygons of two meshes to make them appear. The appearance of the polygons is delayed by the z axis value of the center-point of the polygon

Animation Node experiment - particle cluster II

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-11-05T06:17:34+00:00

For this animation I played again with the particle cluster template from the animation node addon To blur the lines I rendered them on a different render-layer and combined them in the compositor

Animation Node experiment - gears

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-11-04T06:20:09+00:00

for this animation I used the time- and delay-node of the animation-node-addon to build a gear system

Animation Node experiment - Music nodes

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-11-02T06:56:36+00:00

for this animation I used the "simple sound controller"-template from the animation nodes addon to control some objects by music. I rendered the 3 animations separately and cut them to the beat using the VSE

The track is recorded and mixed using bitwig-studio

you can download part1 ,part2 and part3 here
