View Full Version : FXWars! Catapult! (Trebuchet) : Elix

07 July 2004, 08:05 PM
Hi all,

I'm new here, stumbled into this challenge and decided to give it a go because I'm testing some simulation software anyway. I realize this is pathetic compared to some brilliant entries I've seen but this is a little tongue-in-cheek...
I'm purely interested in the simulation aspect of it all and this is 100% dynamics, 0% keyframes and... a few bricks are actually knocked down!

I didn't even know about trebuchets, obviously a lot of research about the subject is needed. So, this is more like a toy... a spoon with a weight and some bricks.

Software: Realsoft3d 4.5 and Dynatomics beta (!).

I'm still learning the more advanced features of Dynatomics; next step after the trebuchet research wiil be addition of a sling and a cloth basket, hopefully its reach will improve a bit ;-) (

Hi Mark :

Neat little anim ! I really like the fact it is all 100% Dynamics , not that makes it any better than any of the other neat looking stuff here , in this forum , but it is kind of cool to think that everything we see in this is a result of gravity , transformed .

Looking forward to your next animation .
