Morphing Between Ramen and Pizza - Blender 2.83 Animation Nodes


I made an animation that transforms from ‘Ramen’ :ramen: to ‘Ramen Pizza’ :pizza: using Blender 2.83 and Animation Nodes + Extra Nodes.
Non-destructive modeling and Eevee procedural textures 100%.

In my recent style, objects are made from very simple meshes like plane or circle, then add modifiers for finishing form.

Here is brief explanation video. :warning: Please turn English subtitles on :warning:

Make noodle from particles (from video)

Ramen form, no materials


Ramen form, no modifiers

Ramen-pizza form, no materials

Ramen-pizza form, no modifiers

Noodle is made by this way is not real, but handy and fun for me :grinning:
I’m looking forward to Particle Nodes :sparkler:

:heart_eyes: :heart_eyes: so good! lots of respect for the time you put into your work!
Particle Nodes is something i’m waiting for too. I think there will be starting presets for particle nodes which might make it less intimidating… although i might be wrong on that :slight_smile:

Thank you for the comment :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
I can’t understand too long-form English, so I’m just glancing at threads about particle nodes in developer communities, I’m looking forward to the implementation.
I think we will be happy to share useful presets with group-nodes or something.

I’ve been banned twice for less serious reasons than putting spaghetti on a pizza.

Looks good, makes me want to order a pizza,
try to improve the noodles with subsurface scatter.

I saw this pizza in a Pizza Hut Taiwan ad, but it’s not sold in my country.
I would love to try these once.

Thank you for the comment :blush:
Noodle’s material is increased SSS when it’s in ramen-style, decreased SSS and added burned part when it’s in pizza-style.

Thank you for the watching!
When I’m making food scene, I think I’ve eaten it :yum:

You can run particle nodes in 2.83?!

I know they’re I THINK planned for 2.91 I believe? But I didn’t notice you could already run them in 2.83!

This is incredible! I haven’t seen many food renders, so it’s great to see one, and one in Blender for that matter :slight_smile:
