Papers blowing effect
by Stan Fraser on Aug 26, 2014 at 1:42:06 pm
I have had this problem for a day now, scoured the internet and still had no joy.
I want to animate a series of a A4 papers falling individually, until there is roughly 30/40 on the floor, then have them all blow away towards the screen at the same.
I am struggling to create natural movements for them when trying to key frame they're velocity manually, plus this takes while.. I was wondering if its possible to make each paper into an individual particle, then just edit their movement in particular? Is this at all doable?

One way to do this without external plugins might be to use Particle World, set the particle texture to the image of a sheet of paper you want to use, give them a long lifespan and change the opacity map so they don't fade in or out, and then keyframe the velocity/gravity/etc. so they rest on the effect's floor until the forces change.
I don't have particular, so I can't say exactly how'd you'd use this plugin in this case. Good luck!
