I want to make something bleed...
on Jun 10, 2008 at 7:06:59 pm

I have Maya 8.5

I know it would be too complicated to explain the whole thing (unless you really, really want to) but maybe someone can point me to some tutorials of a similar nature either here or on another site.

I basically want to have a black screen, and then text characters appear to be opening up, as if a knife were cutting the black "skin", and writing words on it. Then the text character "gashes" would fill up with blood and pour out - possibly the blood would form another character (title)

Thanks for anything you can help me with.

mmmmmh, this is a lot to do, and you should break it into small chunks

the cutting skin might be the start
the blood coming out another
and the blood making letters is another

the cutting can be made with blend shapes, also, you could modify the skin with bones, this is gonna be the hard part.

then the blood can be donne with particles, rendered as a blobby surface
to make them form anything you need to use goals, make the text a goal and animate the goal weight.

this is not easy, but if you break it into small pieces is actually simpler.

good luck
