Candy Hearts

February 4, 2013 - By 

Yep, it’s time for another Five Second Project. This month’s theme is “Candy Hearts”. It’s time to show the LOVE! Maybe it’s a 5 animation for someone (or something) you love. Perhaps you write out a special message on those yummy heart shaped candies? Not feeling the love? It’s ok. Interpret the theme however you see fit. Just make something, will ya? Get rendering!

    I think im gonna enter :-)!

  • Got now a great idea to ask somebody for a date πŸ™‚

  • Is this a render or photo of candy hearts (theme image).

  • Sounds like it could be a great exercise in texturing.

  • Hello Nick,
    Great tutorials, learning a lot. If you feel like producing another tut I sure would like to see your procedure for producing a clear plastic bread bag with the opening tied off like you see in the store.
    Thank you,


  • Hey,

    Got this idea I’m gonna edit something this time.
    At least: if my C4D works?!
    It’s being funny lately : (no spam: real link but shortened!)

    You’ll get my stuff when it’s working agian!

  • hey Nick or anyone, on a quick note in reference to this render, how to achieve such quantity of hearts with different textures & positions so varied? the overlapping manually would take hours alone!

  • Hi Nick
    Very strange but creativity stimulating idea =) But I’ve got two questions: Till when do I have to upload my video? 17th of February 24:00? And the second question: You only accept vimeo uploads? No chance to upload it on youtube?

  • Hi, I’m trying to submit my entry for the contest, but I keep getting the following error: “Encountered an API error — Invalid nonce: The oauth_nonce passed has already been used.”

    My video is at Please advise, thanks!

  • Man I got stuck on this one with zero ideas. But I pushed through and turned this out.
    Maybe these should graduate to 10 second projects. πŸ™‚

    • I know what you mean. I kicked around a couple of ideas related to heart-shaped gears, just couldn’t come up with anything that told a 5 second story. My entry turned out very simplistic and completely different than I anticipated.

  • why vimeo does not hold on to my original video ? it makes my video really lowRes.!
    plese help.

  • Finally after a lot of stress I finished the animation:
    I hope you like it =)
