It’s been a long time since I used particles in 3D Studio Max. For this week’s image I wanted to get back into particle effects and use them to generate some forms for the image. Particles work best in motion and so this week’s image is more motion graphics project than still image. However the feature image was generated from a still of the animation.
Since I wasn’t planning on making a motion graphics piece to start with the final is a bit slapped together. I threw in my logo for some purpose behind the movement of the balloons. As a transition it could be cool and I may revisit this idea in the future.
This is also the first time I used Vimeo to host a video. Normally I’d use my archive site, but it can be slow on occasion, so I signed up for Vimeo. I may change over to Youtube eventually, but for now the Vimeo works fine. It did however alter the color of the animation and dull it quite a bit.
