Vortex.A from Trapcode


Take a look at this cool little app that has been developed by Peder Norby from Trapcode.  As well as the incredible plugins that Trapcode produce for After Effects, Peder has also written a few apps for the iPhone / iPad that are definitely worth checking out.


In Peders words “Vortex.A – touch-interactive generative art. I am experimenting with fluid dynamics: how liquids and gases behave – a classically difficult problem in physics/maths. Most agree that fluid dynamics is described by the Navier-Stokes differential equations. There is no known all-case solution for the equations, but there are solutions for specific cases and approximative methods to find numerical solutions.” – For more info, you should check out the Trapcode -Blog.

    Hello there!
    I’ve been looking for the way to create the effect of winds like this in Cinema 4D for ages but couldn’t find none of ways myself… Could you give us some hints to create such effects of winds like that??

    I’d use either some particles, or a grid array of matrix object. Then trace this with Tracer. Add some turbulence or Random effector to make it more random.

    Thank you for your warm advise! and am sorry to respond you late.
    I will try the way and hopefully come back with what came out!
