This video takes you through the steps of creating a simple cell division animation using the nParticle tool, cluster deformers, and output mesh settings.
- [Instructor] In this video, we're going to look at…how to simulate cell division using nParticles…and controlling them with a cluster deformer.…This is a great way to animate cell division…without having to do any complicated scripting…and it gives you a lot more control over your particles.…The first thing we want to do is create a custom tool…to help us center our objects in our scene.…This will help you align everything quickly…later on in this course.…I've created a custom shelf up here.…You can do this by going to the shelf settings…and going to the Shelf Editor.…In here, you can click this icon to create a new shelf…and rename it anything you choose…and hit Enter on your keyboard when you're happy.…
In the Shelf Contents, we want to create a new item.…And I'm going to rename this CenterWorld.…Go into the Command tab and then delete its contents.…From your text file, select this script…and copy and paste it back into the Command tab.…Go back into the Shelves tab and click Save All Shelves.…
And you'll see that this has created a custom tool here…
