Thanks for sharing and detailed production breakdown
i thought there wouldnt be anything better than akeytsu for creating easy animations. im happy if i am proven wrong.
Keith, I just wanted to stop by and say: Thank you.
David A. Ferreira has shared a video on his experiments with newtonian interactions in Houdini. The artist watched a tutorial from Entagma on Custom Particles with VEX and dived into the creation of different motions you can get from such simple concepts.
I introduced a parameter to control an attraction force at the geometric center of all particle positions, an initial acceleration and also some simple controls for an attack force on the heaviest particle that will try to “eat” the second heaviest or the lightest particle.
Beware of hypnotic properties of this kind of project, you really lose track of time just playing around with different values.
All rendered with DOF in the amazing lightning fast Redshift. It’s so fast.
