Easy Bullet Physics. 3D Animation Tutorial for Carrara

edited December 1969 in Carrara Discussion

Learn an easy way of animating with physics keyframes in 3D animation.

TUTORIAL VIDEO

In this example I show how to toss coins into a cardboard box. The emphasis is on being artistic rather than scientific.

In other words I'm going to show you how to "cheat". How to focus on getting a result quickly, using a "reasonable" start point (by guessing at something preset and similar) and then fiddling a bit until we get what we want.

By ensuring that you work with proxy objects or simple objects (like a coin), then the simulation in Carrara 8 is pretty fast. This makes working with this kind of animation technique a joy!

I cover all the basic techniques needed to get an object to collide in a realistic way with another object.
