how they did the bricks animation effect here?

dear friends ... i watched an ad. for tiger beer ... and it has a very cool particle effect that i tried to do it alot but without achievement ... i was reading an article about this Ad in fxguide and i knew from it that they used particle flow with scripting to archive this effect ... does anybody have any idea how to achieve this effect? i do not know scripting ...

you can watch the Ad here:

That's how I'd do it:

First I'd build the complete thing with separate Bricks (only the parts that are showed moving in the animation ). Then I'd use some PFlow script to spawn particles at the bricks' position (something like Bobo's Custom Chunks script), rotate them, scale them to 0 and use a deflector to send them to a new Event, where they will rotate and scale into their original form. By animating the Deflector I can then determine how the Bricks will appear.

For full effect you'll have to use multiple Flows for different parts of the Buildings.

Besides the stock PFlow, Octobor also used PFTools:Box#2 and Box#3 in their Tiger Beer (New York and London) commercials.

Thanks,

Those spots are beautifully done! Any chance for a making of?
I miss commercial work sometimes i had a good time with some ups and downs.





Ansi want's a making of

These are wonderful! Congratulations to Octobor, and a making-of would be great.

Looks like a really similar placement technique Galagast (Jeff Lim) used on a scene I built up a tutorial for:

Box#2 Visual Guide - PhysX Switch


There is a preview video at the bottom of the page...

Agreed making of would be sweet

Indeed awesome effect they have achieved! Besides great shading and other rendering related things, it's fairly simple particle setup. Couldn't resist - here is my attempt.

very cool,how did you do that?

First I create one brick and adjust it's pivot, then with array I build this simple wall. So you have many objects in it's final position/rotation/scale.

Then you create particles from objects(ObjectToPraticle) and store it's initial position/rotation(alignment)/scale.

Then you transform this posioton, rotation and scale, and in next step bring it back to the stored position....

Hi tasiek, fancy going into a little more depth about that process, we are looking to do something similar here. Are you just using particle flow out of the box or Thinking particles and are you scripting anything if it is particle flow. Any further explanation would be much appreciated.

Anyone got an idea of how to do this in PFlow Vanilla?
Ansi?
I've just had a go but I'm going around in circles. Reading Tasiek explanation he used Thinking Particles.
