    • emPolygonizer4 v.4.16 - "Proof of Concept"


      from Eric Mootz Added 2,728 64 2

      Hi there, This is a 2 x 16s test drive of the new update of emPolygonizer4. Many things have been revised and fixed in this version and this test's intention was to see if the ICE data UVs, the ICE data vertex colors and the deformation motion blur are correctly generated by emPolygonizer4 and then correctly rendered with SItoa (v.2.8.0) + Arnold as well as Mental Ray. The meshes consist of a meshed emFlock2 simulation (see emFlock2 demo scene "Bacteria_Pseudo_Liquid"). UVWs, colors and motion vectors were created and saved with the meshes. The entire animation was simulated, meshed and rendered on a single workstation with 1 x Intel i7 (average sim. + render time was about 3 minutes per frame). Software: - Softimage 2012 SAP - emPolygonizer4 version 4.160 - emFlock2 version 2.332 - SItoA version 2.8.0 and Arnold version - Mental Ray Cheers, Eric http://www.mootzoid.com

        Oven and Axe were animated with Momentum. Skin was animated with Lagoa and the Glue to Mesh technique. Cupid breaks apart with emTools.

                Exploration of Mootzoid's plugins for Softimage, emFlock2, and emPolygonizer3. A point cloud travels from one lagoa simulation to another and is being rendered as liquid with help of emPolygonizer3.

                  • emFlock2 v.2.3 (alpha) - "Evolution"


                    from Eric Mootz Added 32.4K 718 43

                    Howdy, Bloody flying particles... again! Two and a half minutes of flocking, flying and morphing particles using emFlock2's new "Evolution" feature. The motivation to make this animation was to test the features of the new emFlock2 version 2.3. The animation has one camera and one simulated point cloud. The shapes into which the particles morph are point clouds that were created with the compounds "Quantize Volume", "Twist Position" and the new "Equal Distribution" which are all three contained in the latest emTools. The simulation was done on my laptop (1 x Intel i5). The rendering was done on my workstation (1 x Intel i7). 3D software: Softimage 2012.5 ICE plugins: emFlock2 and emTools Renderer: Arnold Music software: Reason 4.0 Take care, Eric PS: the next release video (for emPolygonizer4) will *not* have particles, I promise ;) http://www.mootzoid.com http://www.mootzoid.com/newsletter

PS: in the video is a little Freudian slip: instead of saying "..EVEN distribution.." I say "..EVIL distribution.." ...it's been a long day. http://www.mootzoid.com
