Here’s part 2 in my series of tutorials utilizing the combination of Spring & Spline Dynamics together to get some really cool dynamic animation! This time around, I’m going to go over how to use Springs & Spline Dynamics to make a floating balloon on a string, a bit of an upside-down setup featured in Part 1.

If you know of any other techniques you know of, please share! Enjoy!
Hey, it’s Spring! What better way to celebrate it than a few tutorials utilizing the combination of Spring & Spline Dynamics together to get some really cool dynamic animation! In part 1 of this series, I’m going to go over how to use Springs & Spline Dynamics to make an object dangle off of a string. It’s a pretty simple set up and it allows for a lot of control to tweak to get the right type of dynamic movement. Enjoy!

This is kind of an intro to Camera Mapping if you’ve never used it before. In this tutorial, I show you how I used camera mapping to make a texture stick to a group of objects and create a transition like this:
