There are some combinations of ICE- nodes I build everytime I’m working with strands. So as I finally put these combinations together as compounds, I thought it would be a good thing to share those with you. It’s all very (very) basic, but quite handy. Of course, it’s all about avoiding simulation, so these compounds are designed to be used in an unsimulated ICE tree. Description and download links after the click.
There are 4 compounds:
- Create Strand: Just throw in your target position
- Strand FCurve: Lets you drive attributes along your strands with a FCurve
- Turbulize Strand: Gives your strand positions some variation
- Strand Growth: Animate the progress of your strand with this compound
There’s also a super simple sample scene.
