Title: No umbrella
Post by: Hannes on January 21, 2016, 08:56:49 PM
I used my own rain file for this low res animation plus a little warping to make it a bit more natural.
The splashes are actually a population of tiny little white grass clumps. The seed is animated so that each frame has a different seed. "Repopulate every frame" is checked.
I had to cheat a little bit: I used some frame blending in AE to make the appearance of the "splashes" look a bit less chaotic, and there's a bit of tinting the whole scene.

After I had finished the clip, I realized that each car I picked is blue. I didn't notice that before...

Thanks a lot, guys! Although it would be great to have a sophisticated particle system in TG, it was great fun to find out how to simulate a particle simulation.

Yeah, particle system would be too easy. Finding out how to simulate simulations is much more fun  ;D
