This is a great post on star wars. Our cheap assignment experts are really impressed.

Thanks for sharing, the lighting on the wheels and coins is beautiful, very painterly.

Newtonian Interactions in Houdini
14 June, 2017

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.
