Here we are just going to show you some of the pictures. The detailed will be in the video πŸ˜‰

IMG_9960

In workshop today we learned how to create rigid objects with physics force applied to them.
IMG_9961

We can apply some weights, gravity force, fractions etc like the picture below.

IMG_9962

We can also add some bouncing parameter to the objects. In this case we have a ball and a thick surface below it.
IMG_9963

We wanted to make the ball fall right on top of the plane and break it. So we had to make both object rigid body.

IMG_9964

We also had to set parameters for fractures
IMG_9965

Look at those inspired audience! πŸ™‚

IMG_9966

When all set up, when the ball fall on top of the surface, it breaks.
IMG_9967

Or we can add more dramatic fractures like this one

IMG_9968

Even with more objects and different materials
IMG_9971

We can also use particles if we want to make the ball explode from the inside.

IMG_9972

Q & A sessions πŸ™‚
IMG_9973

Yeah we can make it cracked (not break apart into pieces) by putting another surface so close to the top surface.

IMG_9974

Like usual, at the end of the session, each one of us introduce self to the others πŸ™‚
IMG_9975

It was raining heavily and we had to wait until it became a little bit lighter πŸ™‚

IMG_9976

But we didn’t mind because we can still gather and talk while waiting πŸ˜‰

See you next week! πŸ˜‰

ProCodeCG codeMeetUp() #63 – Visual Programming – Animation Nodes

Standard

Today, we did some visual programming! Aditia A. Pratama, Blender Trainer and Technical Director of Kampoong Monster StudiosΒ showed us how to do it with Animation Nodes πŸ™‚

IMG_8102

This is how the nodes look like.

IMG_8103

These nodes define loops, transitions, calculation, process, input and output.

IMG_8104

This is an example of generating random numbers with animation nodes.

IMG_8105

We practically can do anything with this πŸ™‚

IMG_8106

We can generate a sequence of movements of random objects with nodes.

IMG_8107

This example shows how to create a stack of coins, with random x and y axis. It will stack up more coins if we drag the arrow upward and remove coins if the arrow is going downward.

IMG_8108

So at the beginning we just need to create one coin object.

IMG_8109

And the set up some nodes to generate more coins.

IMG_8110

Once it’s done, we’ll get something like this πŸ™‚

IMG_8111

The audience who are lucky to learn so much about animation today! πŸ™‚
