View Full Version : Melting icecreame on a cone

10 October 2008, 07:13 PM
i need to animate a melting earth on a cone. im not saying i believe in global warming, but i still need this. anyone know of something similar that i can have? and if not then what technique should i use? i work on 3ds Max.

Sort of sounds like my thread.
I'll suscribe and If I find an answer I'll tell.

i found something like what i need, but i need it animated. i have some time in my hands so i don't think its out of reach.

I'm experimenting with afterburn and trying to use hypersolids? Ever done that before? I haven't and need help. There's a melt modifier in 3ds... But i dont know if it would stream down the cone. Play with it a bit.

If you can get the thing to melt convincingly, you can composite-in the cone. Lattices are wonderful things for making stuff follow shapes like a cone, even if the actual cone is added later.

You may want to check out the "Particle rain/drip" tutorial on Allan McKay's site and adapt that technique and maybe use some morph targets for the actual deformation of the ice cream.
