Tutorial: Procedural Disintegration

In this long-delayed tutorial I will show you an efficient method for disintegrating/dispersing a 3D layer into particles. The method shown here has been optimized to produce maximum amount of particles at lowest computing cost (more stuff flying around, faster renders).

Originally planned to be released in June 2010, this tutorial concludes the four-part series including: 100% Accurate Reflections, Automated Light Rig and Light Wall.

Running time: 70min
Difficulty: Medium
Required tools: After Effects, Trapcode Particular
Optional plug-ins: VC Optical Flares (or similar)

Gene Pool

By now, most likely, everyone-and-their-extended-families have seen the Gene Pool application. On the odd chance you haven’t, I decided to feature this awesome program/game/simulation here.

Gene Pool allows the user to observe evolution of miniature digital creatures known as swimbots as they travel around a pool of liquid in search of food and mates. The user can decide on the composition of the pool, amount of food, types of swimbots and the rules of attraction between them. Once set, you sit back, relax and watch little swimbots go at it in merciless fight for species survival.

Textorizer: Typographer’s Dream Continues

A few days ago I wrote about Wordle: a web-based Java application for creating typographic mosaics/collages out of any given text. Now I have another great application for you: Textorizer.

This time your input will include not only source text (sorry, .txt file only, no web-based feed analysis), but also an image. Textorizer will then read the color information from your image and create a typographic mosaic using the text and typeface you selected. The mosaic will be saved in either PNG or SVG format.

Wordle: Typographer’s Dream

I just came across a website named Wordle. It is a host to an absolutely awesome Java applet which takes a set of keywords and generates a collage out of them in around a second. You can either copy-paste the text yourself, let the applet analyze a web address, a RSS feed or even tags of a del.icio.us user.

Necklace

Procedural animation developed for the Master of IDM project. A null object creates a randomized 3D loop path, while a particle system feeds it little spheres, each identified by a text layer displaying its ID number.

DemoGraphix

DemoGraphix is imago’s tribute to the demo scene – a community of artists, coders and musicians creating amazing real time audiovisual art pieces directly through computer code. Demo scene influenced the motion graphics scene for many years and we felt that is about the time we paid our respects to it.

Unlike traditional computer animation (using keyframes and tweening), “DemoGraphix” was created from grounds up entirely through coding and mathematical formulas. We used After Effects expressions and scripting to create assets for the animation and to put them in procedural motion.
