growing along an animated curve

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-10-30T06:22:58+00:00

For this animation I used an array modifier and made it follow a curve. To make things more interesting I added some shapekeys to the curve and added a noise modifier to the animation

boolean experiment 3

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-10-07T06:09:17+00:00

I haven't used the boolean modifier for a while, so I made a new short experiment using it. for this video I used a bunch of boolean modifiers, an array modifier and a simple deform modifier

For this animation I played with an array modifier and a displacement modifier

boolean experiment 2

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-05-02T05:40:24+00:00

This is my second experiment with the blender boolean modifier. For this video I used two of them, a first one to create the slices of the sphere and a second one to make them appear in the first half of the video

fluffy spiral

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-04-21T09:46:23+00:00

For this animation I created a spiral curve and turned into a mesh. Then I used a build modifier and a skin modifier to create the base mesh for the hair particles to grow on. Unfortunately the hair particles shift when the underlying mesh grows - hence the "slash hammer" effect

construct

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-04-19T10:33:54+00:00

for this animation I used two build modifier and a skin modifier. I wanted to construct and deconstruct the structure, but I didnĀ“t want to just reverse the rendered frames so I used one build modifier to create the structure and a second one thats running in reverse mode to deconstruct it. The second modifier starts at frame 200.

ocean wobble

Nikolaus Gradwohl2013-12-27T06:46:55+00:00

For this animation I placed an ocean modifier on an icosphere in displace mode. Doesn't look like a wave but makes very interesting deformations.
