Things have been pretty quiet on my site lately. However, I do have a good reason for that. I’ve been hard at work on a new tutorial DVD for CG Masters.
After the release I’ll be back to producing a ton of new free tutorials.
In any case, I thought I’d show one of the props that will be created for the DVD which is this coin.
Although creating this (very simple) scene wont be included, the creation of the coin is. Incidentally, after finishing the DVD you’d have no problem creating a simple scene like this though, oh and i’ve just spotted that BlenderGuru appears to be making a tutorial which covers a scene like this, or at least I think so. In any case here’s a brief rundown…
BRIEF RUNDOWN -
- Add a plane for the ground, add passive physics.
- Add a flattened cylinder mesh for the coin and add some active physics.
- Duplicate it lots of times then run a simulation where they all fall down and create a pile of coins.
I realise that’s somewhat of an oversimplification. If there are any questions i’m happy to answer them.
Anyway thanks for looking. Now back to finishing all these tutorials!
