View Full Version : Car Crash WIP

08 August 2009, 03:40 PM

Today I started with a car crash test. I used reactor's cloth for the initial impact on a proxy geometry and then skin wrapped it to the high res car. The model isn't mine tho I had to reconstruct it a bit for better deformation results. The practice is for the simulation effect and not the modeling. :)

I started with simcloth3 but failed to keep the volume of the car so I ended up using reactor's cloth instead. I'm still not that happy with it. Maybe I'll try to do it manually and morph the crash effect on impact.

It's a very early WIP. Also need to shatter the glass, improve the car animation and overall to make it look more convincing.. (

I'm using this is as reference. (

I might try rayfire for those shatter effects or might do it with reactor itself..

I stopped when I saw I had to download a .rar and I dont' even think I have a .rar reader installed.

you'd get more response if you put up a regular movie file like a .mov

Well if I could attach files here I wouldn't put it in an external link.

But never mind it now, I already progressed with it so right now that WIP is obsolete.

Next time I'll put a youtube link.
