Breaking glass

Hi all,
my first post! I’ve tried and searched for a while, but still don’t know how to do it.

I have a plane with an image texture on it.
I’d like to:

  • Subdivide the plane in many smaller areas (subdivide & knife tools OK)
  • Animate the single pieces independently, as an exploding glass plate, while keeping on them the original image parts.

Any hint?

Ciao e grassie, Leo

Broken did it with softbodies:

jms has an “Explode” script you can search for in the Python and plugins forum.


I found too late those threads.
I’ll try the script.

Ciao, Leo
