Making objects splat
Added on: Fri Feb 23 2001
Page: 1 2 

Create a wind space warp the same way you created the gravity one, adjust the settings so itís spherical and has a strength of 1.5 and a decay value of 0.021. Now place it wherever you want, but I would advise probably putting it directly on the ground plane and probably a bit behind where the teapot lands to push it forward as it splatters. This makes the teapot actually have a bit of momentum when it hits the ground and spreads out

This was a pretty simple introductory to what you can do, but with more complicated meshes and more complicated particle counts and space warps you can get some really intense stuff happening!
