In a response to a question I was asked on Vimeo about how to spin objects on a single axis using dynamics, I go over a couple ways you can achieve this effect so the dynamics rotation looks realistic and can interact with real world physics and gravity. First, I’ll show you how to get a cube to spin on it’s edge and then show how to slow it down to a stop and topple over. Then I’ll demonstrate how you can get your logo or text have a cool, dramatic, and energetic spin reveal using dynamics on a logo made with Text Edge FX.

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. There’s two techniques I use to get this floating balloon effect: First is showing how to float a balloon that is fixed or attached to a point or object, and the second is more of a free floating balloon setup. If you know of any other techniques you know of, please share! Enjoy!
Part 1: Dangling Objects Off a String
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!
