  • great work simon your good at what you do …

  • Hi Simon, where can i watch with good quality this videos??

  • That was infinite useful!

  • I really liked the 1st video on particles, is it possible to put an animated object as the particle? (such as a bird flapping its wings, so that you could have a flock of birds?)

  • Gave the point deformer a try. Thnx Mr Simon

  • Fabulous

  • Hi Simon. I was wondering if there’s a way to constrain the length of the spline (Tracer Object Techniques). Let’s say I want to have one of the cubes hanging and swinging from one end of the spline. Great videos by the way.

  • I wonder why nobody asked about the Scripts he used… I cannot get to read some expresso nodes due to the low quality. Somebody has them? Thanks
