Scene walkthrough – Polygons following particles


In this video, I do a walk through of a scene posted by Guillaume Laforge on the XSI mailing list. In the scene, Guillaume uses a point cloud to drive the polygons of a mesh, so that the polygons follow that transformations (pos and ori) of the particles. ICE modeling is used to “break up” the mesh into polygons. Includes a description of how vector subtraction is used to locate points relative to a polygon center.
