blow away cards
on Apr 6, 2011 at 10:23:42 pm


i've been trying and still continuing to find tutorials for "blowing away effect". i could animate each piece but it would turn out very fake and unnatural, thus i be better off not using it

The scenario:
i will have about 90-100 piece shaped similar to pack of playing cards. now imagine they have been all been laid down on a surface 10 cards in row, very organised and straight (like a grid structure).

the blow effect:
-wind (will be invisible and the) direction will enter from the top and move towards the bottom
-the wind force light to medium strength, so the cards pieces slide rather than spin and blow away like leaves

thanks in advance

If you use a particle system like Particular you can apply dynamic effects like wind and turbulance to move the cards however. The trick will be getting them in their initial state. If you can't manuever that, think about two comps. One of the cards that actually just start disappearing, and the other would be the particle system with the "same" cards blowing away.

You may be able to get the arrangement by using a layer grid as the emitter.
