Thanks, Allar! Good luck with your new project!
Who just carries around $250.000 worth of files on a portable hardrive without any backups.. The bug is stupid, but this guy is a moron.
Michael Allar here. Thanks a bunch for posting this, I really appreciate it. I'm also the guy who wrote that Confessions article that was posted here on 80.lvl as well.
BlenderNation reported about a very neat tutorial from Albin Merle. It’s a sweet short 8-minute video, which hopefully teaches you how to create a breakable tree with Fracture modifier. It also shows, how to keep it light to bake and render with hair dynamic instancer.
To make it all work, you’ll need to download the FM build, and the tissue add-on just to create a specific vertex weight. Not sure it will work for the production of games, but it does look pretty awesome.
