Maya Tutorials: Intro to Dynamic Tutorials Week*6

This week we continued the with dynamics instancers, however this time we tried something more advanced. Being able to have a mesh attached to a particle, is really useful, though as default  its control was limited. therefore we were introduced how to create attributes to control the direction in which the instancers will move. From aim to rotation.

Arrow Animation 

Rockets Animation

Pointers Animation 

Alongside animating with instancers were were introduced how to also use them as a tool to randomly place objects onto a scene. It is indeed very difficult to randomly place objects by ourselves as we unconsciously arrange a pattern to place them with this tool, it is fairly simple to get a good random selection .

I remember last project, placing my own trees onto a scene, now I can easily to that.
