IMPACT-The animated ruins project
Hey guys.here's a project I've had going on and off for a while now.it's not really ready for sale yet so I figured I'd just dump some of what I have as a freebie,
Impact(Works in DAZStudio 4.5 only):
usage is fairly easy.if all you want is a static pile of rubble then scrub the time slider to the end of the animation,
Each 'frag' has a few hundred pieces which are parented to a non rendering prop,called the target.you can use the target to place each animated prop where you need them.
if animating be sure to activate motion blur in render settings.
if you have keymate or animate2 you can slide keys to better position the timing of the impact in your animations.
hope you all get some enjoyment out of this..if not for rendering then just watching shit blow up is always cool :)
PS:the larger project I have includes walls and columns collapsing,crater impact points and other animated goodness,the reason it's on hold is D|S can't slide keys natively.this limits the end user too much for the product to be truly useful..so,if you want me to finish the project please request the ability to slide keys in your next bug reporter visit :)...thanks!
