cycles material animation test

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-04-12T06:13:37+00:00

In this short video I experimented with animating the parameters of a node based material. In the first half I animated the color of a velvet node, and then the mixing value to blend between a the velvet material and a glass material

blender particle experiment - particle wood

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-04-10T16:45:17+00:00

For this part of my blender particle experiments I made a wood - using a particle system with no physics and group rendering

scene test for my next shortfilm

I made some rocks for my blender yet-to-be-named short film project today. Here is a testscene I made to compare the sizes of my robot character and the rocks

I made a short walk-cycle animation with a simple robot. This is another short test-render for my next short film project

blender audio visualizer

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-04-01T16:16:46+00:00

I made another blender animation by using the smoothing modifier to very extreme values. This time I animated them using "bake sound to F-Curve"

The sound-track was generated using hydrogen and a korg monotron

old stairs

The tower and the stairs are generated using array modifiers and cubes. I used the ivy-curve add-on to generate the ivy-vines.

I really like the stair and the lights, the stone material holds room for improvement.

blender particle experiments - letters

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-03-26T05:59:22+00:00

for this part of my blender particle experiments I use a particle group containing the letters from A to Z

blender particle experiments - cells

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-03-25T09:08:38+00:00

For this image I used a very simple 1-frame particle system to generate the cell-wall.

blender particle experiments - 1.000.000 cubes

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-03-24T08:17:45+00:00

for this blender particle experiment I made a particle system containing 1000000 cubes

I didn't upload the blend file this time, because its very huge but easy to reporduce.

I added two cubes and a plane. The plane is a collision object One cube contains the particle system, the other one is used as a particle object.

In the emmision block set "Emit from " to Volume use Grid.

Set the resolution to 100 - et voila - 1000000 particles

I've also set the particle size to 0.01

1.000.000 cubes
