Animation Node experiment - Particle cluster

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-10-21T06:10:02+00:00

I recenly started experimenting with the animation nodes addon by Jacques Lucke. It´s really nice and as Nicolas Priniotakis from blender nation said in his review - If you install this addon you're hooked.

For this animation I used the particle cluster nodes from the animation nodes addon

umbrellas

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-10-15T06:06:21+00:00

for this animation I modeled an umbrella and animated the opening effect using shapekeys. Then I used this umbrella as a particle in a particle system on a plane. I wanted to render the animation from multiple camera angles and ended up copying everything to 4 different scenes - which is far more complicated than I wanted - I have to do a bit more research on this

fluid bubbles

for this animation I used 2 particle systems. A newton system for the smaller bubbles and fluid system with an iso-surface for the large bubbles

particle driver experiment

for this experiment I used a driver expression to animate the particle emission speed

particle lights

for this animation I used small cubes with an emission shader as particles

ico sphere vertex traces

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-09-23T06:20:33+00:00

for this animation I used the btrace-addon to trace the vertices of a randomly moved and scaled ico-sphere

dynamic paint displace

For this animation I used an ico-sphere as a dynamic paint canvas in displace mode to move some cube particles

vertex emission

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-09-21T06:39:18+00:00

for this animation I used the vertices of a icosphere as emission points for a particle system

frozen particles

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-09-16T06:23:08+00:00

For this animation I created a particle system and froze time

changing forces

for this animation I used several different force-fields to influence the movement of cubic particles
