i would like to break a 3D logo made in maya in flying parts (each letter breaked in 5-10 parts maximum, so NOT 10000 complex
particles!)...flying parts will make another logo at the end.
my question is simple, which tools, plugins, would be the best to achieve this kind of effect? or is it possible to make it only with maya 8.5 tools???
(if plugin, i need to use maya as the host application to make the logo)
maybe real flow or blastcode?
thanks for any help and information.
my work is visible here.
You could "shatter" the 3D logo and then use a morph software / plug to bring them into the new logo. I guess if the logo is only breaking into 5 pieces you could hand animate the CVs of the broken logo to conform to the new one. If it's a low budget I'd just take it into a compositor and morph it there.
