Cornucopious: Animated

I originally thought of the original Cornucopious to be just a still, but it had so much dynamism to it that I decided to animate it for 10 seconds. It doesn’t hurt that the spheres in the center where already animated via Thinking Particles, so one step was already done.

The spheres and the ‘candy blocks’ where animated using Thinking Particles (the latter one had two emitters following a spline). The rings were also dynamic and helped push the spheres and candy around for a nice effect. Both the array of rings (pink) and the ring in the back (orange) are animated using the Sound Effector in Mograph; it was pretty hard to fine-tune it to work on just the bass beats so I ended up making a sound file of just beeps on every beat. In a way it was like setting keyframes in a sound file.

Here’s a hardware render of the project, I thought the bright green with the black looked nice.
