This second training kit from freelance particle and destruction effects guru Anselm v. Seherr-Thoss will help you get up to speed quickly with the workflow and operators that are part of the PFlow Tools: Box 2 Pro plug-in for Particle Flow. This course will give new users and intermediate professionals alike the ability to assemble dynamic Particle Flow systems using these advanced plug-in technologies. Additionally, several bonus videos show you how to take advantage of the popular RayFire destruction plug-in.
Create complex collision effects ranging from sticky particles to procedural soft-body cloth tearing all using the PhysX-based dynamics tools built into Box 2 Pro. Tutorials that explain soft-body techniques including deformable foliage, realistic netting, and squishy objects as well as more complex hard surface effects such as controllable building explosions and glass shattering are all included in this training course. Ansi takes you step-by-step through each effect and provides you with the start and end scene files to explore and dissect on your own as well. And as a little something extra, the training comes with over a dozen bonus scene files that you can dive into on your own to see how Ansi creates some of the killer effects he's responsible for daily.
With high resolution and crystal clear sound, and over 9 hours of video this two-DVD set is the ultimate training solution for anyone looking to learn more about the flexibilty that Particle Flow offers! The tutorials cover Particle Flow topics thoroughly and explain methods clearly so that everyone should be able to follow regardless of their experience level.
