Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Fracturing objects, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
In this tutorial, we are going to look at blowing stuff up, like this.…(video playing)…I am not sure what it is, but something inside of me gets very happy when that happens.…But, we're going to talk about blowing stuff up. I realize we have already talked…about, kind of, how to do this, because we have already talked about Multi-Sub-…Objects and how to activate them, and have those pieces kind of scatter.…But, when we are working with the Animation Engine inside of After Effects, there is …actually a little bit more that we can do. This is actually much more…complicated than it seems.…
If I go over to Fractured FINAL, we could see the actual composition that I…used to render this.…And, it seems like there is just a few things going on, here. But, in…actuality, there is a lot.…So, I have two layers of Element. Actually, I have one layer of Element that's just…an environment object, with the environment on it. And, it's the blurred version,…because glass looks so much better when you have really sharp highlights.…
