  1. Cool, I might come by.
    On the render, how would you get the ping pong balls to interact with the net in an organic way?

    Reply
    • The net was deformed with the flag deformer and then, made ridged. So, the balls don’t really interact with the net other than as a rigid body.

    Wow, I really would like to come and kick all your asses ;)
    But it would be an expensive trip for me. Cause I’m in Germany. Damn.

    Yes, and I like to ask how you did that table tennis render, I like.

    Cheerz, Marcel.

    • I used two bend deformers, rotation and scale keyframes to make the table pop up. Real keyframes to the rescue.

  11. Hi Nick,
    I like the comic, childish style of your animation. Reminds me of some Wii – Sport Animations ;) I’ve worked on a similiar project a couple of weeks ago (Table Tennis, but more dark, dramatic)
    Here is the scene, hope you like it:

    While this render is awesome, and you certainly got talent Nick.

    Im sure you’re just showing off with that 12 Core powerhouse to test how many spheres it can handle ^.-

  14. Hey Nick, I want to know how to do stuff like this. Any chance we’ll get some tutorials on say a complete piece like this? Also, I would love to see tuts on awesome animation like the ping pong? Thanks.
