ProCodeCG codeMeetUp() #67 – Fracture and Rigid Body Dynamics

Standard

Wow! We had lots of audience today!

Kampoong Monster Studios, now Prawitra Studio gave an open workshop about Intro to Fracture and Rigid Body Dynamics today πŸ™‚

IMG_9954

Most of the audience are from Cimahi Creative Association (CCA) πŸ™‚

IMG_9955

IMG_9956

The trainer was CG Supervisor of Pawitra Studio: Bintang Senja Pratama πŸ™‚

IMG_9957

We’re going to upload the video on our YouTube Channel (after the editing process that might take a while πŸ˜€ )
IMG_9959

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˜‰

IMG_9978

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™‚

ProCodeCG codeMeetUp() #45 – Hair Styling and Rendering in Blender

Standard

Yes, this is the 45th ProCodeCG codeMeetUp(), yayyy πŸ™‚

Yesterday Kampoong Monster Studio gave a workshop on Hair Styling and Rendering with Blender πŸ™‚ The man in charge to deliver the topic is Bintang Senja – CG Supervisor of Kampoong Monster Studio πŸ™‚

IMG_9641

Hair effects can be done in to ways: with polygon and with particle system. In polygon, the hair is created from mesh by adjusting alpha to make it look more real. This technique is faster. With particle system (it can also be used for grass, explosion, fog, smoke, etc), the object (in this case hair) can be given effects, can be dynamic, can be interactive (some force field can be applied, like wind, etc.). But particle hair requires more computing power and relatively slow.

We used particle hair in this workshop πŸ™‚

 

IMG_9642

The audience. Small but powerful πŸ˜‰

IMG_9643

So the workshop began:

IMG_9644

And these are some screenshots of the process. From peeling of the scalp, planting/generating some hair, combing and cutting the hair, applying colors and background, putting and arranging lighting to rendering πŸ™‚

Standard

Last Monday, we had Aditia A. Pratama, Technical Director of Kampoong Monster Studios taught us about Non-Photorealistic Β Rendering (NPR) πŸ™‚

IMG_8928

This is the example of a NPR. NPR is inspired by artistic styles such as painting, drawing, technical illustration and animated cartoons. This is a contrast to traditional computer graphics, which focused on photorealism.

IMG_8929

This is the audience. Enthusiast audience! πŸ™‚IMG_8930

And we started the workshop!

IMG_8932And these are the process of creating non-photorealistic render from creating a uv-sphere, adjusting camera, adding source of lights, and rendering
