Blender Tutorials

Tutorials for Blender 3D focusing on VFX and motion graphics.

The inkdrop effect is very versatile. This quick tip shows how you can achieve an astonishing ink flow by just changing a few aspects of the setup. This is another tutorial covering Nion's cool Blender effects.
The second effect of Nion's second reel shows a big drum of smoke growing dangerously bigger and bigger - a nice, simple and very educational effect I chose for my second tutorial of his grand effect reels!
Inkdrops are heavily used in Motion Graphics and Design. Usually one needs to search through stock footage archives to find a fitting drop, which often also means to pay license fees. Thanks to Blender, you can now easily create perfect inkdrops that can be tailored to your project's needs.
If you ever wanted to know how to mix smoke of different colors in Blender 2.5, here's a simple how-to. This is the first part of my series of tutorials for Nion's excellent Blender effects. Preview video and tutorial after the jump!
Using the setup we created in the Wicked Drum of Smoke tutorial we can easily work out a scene of the smoke simulation gone completely insane as you could see in Nion's first effect reel. This quick tip shows how!
