How is this made?

So I recently saw this guy and a friend asked me how the moving wings (what I see it as) behind him was made. Is it a plane with an alpha texture that’s moving while the plane has a fluttering looking animation? If you scroll down on the page a little you can see the wings from another angle, and there you can see that they are completely thin as well. I’m just curious because I have seen some stuff like this but then I guess it’s pretty usual to use alpha textures then for stuff like this? So this can be done in blender in cycles?

Thanks. :slight_smile:


That just looks like a mirrored noise texture applied to a sub divided plane with a wave modifier applied to it.

Hmm, interesting…:yes: Thanks man! Opened my eyes for the wave modifier. :slight_smile:
