In this tutorial you will discover how to:
- Use the explode modifier correctly to break apart your mesh
- Slow down time by tweaking particle settings
- Use force fields to give your particles an extra ‘kick’
- Create thousands of shards of glass in one fell swoop
- Color grade your work ‘hollywood style’
If you’ve spent anytime watching television, you’ve probably seen at least one commercial or trailer showing slow motion shattered glass. And if you’re like me you’ve probably obsessed over this effect and let it play in your head on repeat until the wee hours of the morning instead of sleeping.
It’s an effect that’s always been on my ‘to-do’ list, but never reached my ‘actually doing’ list until now.
