Course Overview

Creating photoreal effects has always been one of the hardest jobs in computer graphics. There’s a very fine balance between simulation and creative control.

You will learn production proven techniques on how to procedurally generate cracks, falling debris and dust, replicate objects along a surface, work with particle instances, expressions and dynamic simulations.

The course also includes David’s custom instance baking and object replication scripts that have been extensively used in production.
