Had a few people wondering how I created the simulation for the above scene from Cerebus Film, so I sat done a recorded a demo of the process.
I go through the scene setup, particle creation, fields, instancer, nmesh / ncloth, caching, and sticky particle emission and goal instancing, to create a scene where a character is bursting through some hedges with dynamic leaves and vines.
The recording is very loose, I did it in one take without prior planning. I apologies for the loose quality, but I think there are still some good tips and advise in there when dealing with particles, instancer , ncloth and stick nparticles.
Looks like my tutorial made it onto one of my favourite CG blogs “lesterbanks.com“., thanks Lester!
