The LFS Project
If you have heard me (Kat) refer to a “Project Genesis” over the past few years, you should know that it is on going and is a series of micro projects that over all, form a whole. It’s purpose dates back to our founding. To our foundation. It is now time for us at Liberty3d.com to take the next step in this series of micro projects. This one in particular being the last that Larry Shultz was directly aware of. The LFS Project is now activated as part of “Project Genesis” and today it will serve as a vehicle forRead More
Metablobs? Oh my!
Liberty3D citizens Kevin Philips and Dana W. Burman have made a few short videos on metablob animation.
First Kevin made a video showing how to make a metablob animation that is predictable and loopable using a morphing point cloud
Then he followed that up by making an instructional video that demonstrates how HyperVoxel blending works.
Dana built on Kevin’s work by showing how, if you don’t need the control or loopability, you can very quickly set up a similar animation using LightWave 11’s Flocking tools.
