January 7, 2010 - Comments Off on Turbulence


This is another offshoot from the Magnetosphere project. Here, I am locking the particle positions onto the surface of a sphere. They are still free to move about and push on each other, but none can leave the surface of that sphere.

I found pretty quickly that the particles, even when being dynamically modified with audio, really just want to find their place and stay put. There isn't much activity. I remedied this problem by adding a rotation velocity.

Audio by Goldfrapp (Deer Stop).

And finally, Turbulence with flares. I saved this one for last because it was the most successful of the video renders. Audio by Thievery Corporation (Le Monde).
