Playing with 3D Dynamics

By 11 Jun ’14Other

As I continue to dive deeper into 3D animation, I’m always finding new things I want to try. Lately I’ve been playing around with dynamics and learning about simulating things like cloth, colliding particles, wind, gravity, and etc. So here are a few tests that I have turned into mini-animations. And of course I added some sound effects and camera movements to bring them to life. Below you’ll also see some behind the scenes shots of the process it takes to create these scenes. Enjoy!

Here’s a condensed step by step look at what these scenes look like while on the editing room floor.

Here’s a zoomed out shot of what the scene looks like for the popping balloon animation. As you can see, it looks very similar to how a real-life studio would be setup.
