For my final project, I created a project based on two effects created in a video titled "Droplets" (vimeo.com/22391017). Here I particularly liked the formation of the object from particles, and the crumbling effect, and I wanted to try my hand at creating them. When I started, I didn't really know how to do either system so I started from scratch, doing a lot of experiments (as seen in my Logo System Test video).
This video contains a full, lengthy breakdown of how I built my systems. I spent extra time to make sure that this system could be used on any object an end-user would need.
