In this guest tutorial by Christoph Pöhler you will learn how to create a cute ghost animation using the cloth simulation and some advanced Cycles shaders.
This tutorial explains how to create a really cool looking, stylized fire in slow motion directly in Blender. The result can be used for backgrounds of all kinds in motion graphics and stills. This tutorial will also show you a lot of tips and tricks how to render fire faster.
Finally, I managed to complete the second part of the ARewO tutorial. It can now distribute objects along a path and include armatures.
You can use Blender to make footage look like it was shot in 1920, by using particle systems and the compositor. Here is how:
Recently I had to clean up a lot of my blendfiles. Especially when you append objects that share textures with your existing objects, you wind up with a lot of duplicates.
