Metaballism: Metaballs as Swiss Army Knife

Alexander Mitzkus

Friday 27 October Theater 30

For old school Blender and 3D users, this talk will wake some memories. As Metaballs were the go-to object type to fake goo, organic blobs and fluids, today with more sophisticaded simulaton techniques and high subdivision organic sculpts and shapes the Metaballs feel often like a relic from the past. This 25 minute talk will highlight some creative real-world uses for Metaballs in up to date workflows.

With precisely designed and edited screencasts I will show how to use Metaballs for: basemesh creation , creation of rigged a stylizes character, bringing typography to life with Animation Nodes, and faking fluids like a pro!
