Here’s a motion loop that I wanted to implement for a while, based on the story of the Midas Touch. All assets were modelled/animated in Maya and rendered with Arnold. This was a first for me, I used various different toolsets to get the final look of the project-
- MASH is extremely powerful for motion design work and I was able to implement that in the conveyor belt animations.
- The simulation of the jelly like substance was achieved in Houdini using Vellum Nodes.
- A late addition but, the liquid gate was a texture deformer on a simple cube using the Ocean texture, to give a subtle wave like animation to the mesh.
