I received quite a lot of requests to make a tutorial about how I did my "Interactive Fracture System Test" Video so eventually I decided to do one. In addition, I'm also showing two ways to have a trail following the collapsed shape.
This method is a cheap and easy to make. I can't really take full credit for this since it wouldn't be possible without the help of the attachment script which attaches objects on a surface based on their local Z axis. This script was made by Paul Hormis in 2006 and you can download it here: cghub.com/scripts/view/64/
This is of course way different then the method I used in my other video where I used Thinking Particles, but it works almost just as good. :-)
