Meet the family of rigid body simulation tools available in Blender and learn how to create realistic 3D movement and collisions.
- Hi there! My name is Joel Bradley, and welcome to our look at Creating Rigid Body Simulations in Blender. We're going to start the course by diving straight into creating a simple rigid body dynamic simulation. Chapter Two will advance our ability to use rigid body simulations by showing us how it can work with proxy objects, concave meshes, as well as Blender's force fields. As no complex simulation scenarios can be handled without our being able to understand and make use of constraints, we're going to use the entirity of Chapter Three to become familiar with the options that we have available in Blender.
Finally, we will be taking some time to take a look at the tools available for creating very cool geometry fracture effects in Blender. As a bonus, we will also show how we can use the powerful Bullet Viewport Constraint add-on, that can make working with and controlling our fractured geometry a whole lot easier. As we clearly have lots of ground to cover, let's dive right in and get started.
