An Eye for a Guy

I’m finishing up a fun tutorial for creating some missing eyeballs. I’m sure you could also make the eyes black with this technique or even change the eye color. With a little work an empty eye socket might be possible as well.

Please don’t beg or ask when it will be ready, that just slows down the process. If you are really desperate for this effect, get some sand paper and a mirror.

Destruction Experiment!
What is this thing! I’ve basically combined a bunch of stuff into one experiment! I might have been inspired by the amazing planet explosions from The Force Awakens but wanted to see if I could get a cool version inside Element 3D. Few Notes on this experiment; I added smoke elements, shockwaves using CC Sphere, and even […]

More 3D Stuff

I’ve been playing in 3D a bit more… This time using particles to control the destruction. It is a bit less precise, notice the overlapping of the first 2 letters, but it is much more robust when using hundreds of pieces.

Basically the text is broken into chunks. They are then turned into particles which “fall apart”. As they fall apart they emit more pieces or chunks so that it looks like pieces are flying everywhere.

In another test, I used reactor to build the base simulation and then had those pieces emit debris. Essentially making half of the composite reflecting real physics and the other half using particles to cheat physics.
