In TP we have three main solvers, SC, physics and Bullet. Physics looks like is not anymore upgraded and we dont have right now autojoints on it.
Since I received a lot of requests for thinking particles resources, this is a post to collect all the training and info available for thinking particles on the web, free or by payment, if you know some other sources please write a coment below.
The first title was “Animation of deforming objects using custom data channel in Thinking Particles” But I think Fun with fan is better.
In the system the animation of every object is relative to time its passed infront fan (node object). If the particle is more near the node, animation will play faster, and if its far from node, will play slower. Its possible to control procedurally the distance where the node is affecting particles, how fast will reproduce the animation, what happen when node is not affecting them (right now animation plays back until original position) and add some randomness per particle.
I create another rule so when the object arrive to the final animation pass to a new group with wind and a SC operator. Dynamics are not so good on the video because low settings and also because it was not the objective of this video.
Basically its based on this tutorial created some time ago. The modifications from this is that now I limit the …
Thinking Particles bullet physics tutorial and scene.
This is a TD done in Thinking Particles to speed up my demolitions.
This is a Tool in development to work in 3ds max in a similar way as you work in Cinema 4d with Mograph. It’s done in Thinking Particles.
This is a destruction for a friend. Its my first animation for production done with my TD Demolition Master. I prefragged the text with rayfire (a shelled geometry so it was a little tricky) all the physics done with the SC in Thinking particles. I created from fragged geometry particles in TP that I used in FumeFx exporting the velocity for finally put it in Particle flow and render it in Krakatoa.
