scatter points on animated mesh

Recommended Posts

hey!

I'm about to create a fairly simple effect where a deforming mesh (a man running for instance) is made of spheres, not only on the surface but inside as well. Of course I can scatter points inside, but my question is how can I keep the distribution of spheres constant through the animation so that each sphere moves with the body (and on top a little noise to make each sphere alive...)

a good example is this video at 1:32

any tip?

cheers!

another way is offset scatter points rest position using normal, and then in VEX using intersect function to found the prim uv, feed this uv in  primuv function to find the new location of  the point

attribute interpolation faster and easy ))

enable at scatter primuv and primnum and interpolate...

hey! thanks for your reply, I found also this from farmfield, and he's using point deform as well! interesting the way he uses vdb to sheres to have spheres that are not intersecting each other
