A tiny spare-time project with some strand and particle parts created mostly with ICE in Softimage. I rendered with Redshift and did some comp-work(glow!) in Fusion. Alien-Ivy setup: In sum: take the normals from the obstacle with some crossproducts and random values for the direction vector. In frequence, i add points to the position of
Softimage ICE Compound to generate spiderweb-“like” strandforms (non-simulated). ns_SpiderWeb.xsicompound (rendered with Redshift) (rendered with Arnold)
ns_Raygun shoots “rays” (strands) with controllable bounces from a given emitter geometry torwards a obstacle. Note: i recognized there is a issue if the environment-geo has no thickness and correct normals. ns_RayGun.2.0.xsicompound (Rendering done with Arnold) The Lizard-Scenefile for Softimage: RayGun_Lizard.scn (Rendering done with Redshift)
ns_Legolizer compound generates, from a given geometry, a instanced pointcloud with some variation of legopieces. You can transfer textures/vertexcolors to instanced legopiece color. ns_Legolizer.emdl Quick scan with vertexcolors from a kinect sensor. By the way thats me with headphones on!
