dancing balls

Hi all:

This is part of a bigger project. The goal is to create a bunch of spheres (10e4 to 10e5) which interact with the environment and with each other.

For the moment I’m dealing with about five thousand spheres in reasonable time (between a few minutes an two hours for the calculation of the blend file).

There are lots of things to improve: from the algorithm itself to the scripting. The dynamics (which also have to be improved) are calculated in a fortran program. This program generates a data file with the position of the balls. This data file is read by a python script which creates the blend file.

Watch it in HD!!!

Hoping to go up to 10.000 spheres with a better and more sophisticated dynamic…
