Head deforming with Softbody

Post by larslarsen » Wed Feb 10, 2010 7:16 pm


I have seen this video on vimeo.com


It is made with a plugin in Cinema 4d, called phytools.
My question: is this also possible with realflow?
I made some tests with a similar head, but it always collapsed into the ground
without bouncing back.

Would be great if someone can give me some tips.

Softbodies in realflow are pretty picky with regards to settings. I think you just have to tweak until you find the settings you're after.

I would say this is possible, but may take you some time to achieve in realflow. If you post up the head, perhaps we can all have a go at it.

Have you tried making it a solid and adding a spring type?

Edit: Would be a fun challenge.
