Bullet Dynamics in LightWave 11.6 - Volume 1 Fracturing Objects

In this five part series we take a project-based approach to using Bullet dynamics in LightWave by creating a sequence of four shots based on storyboards and concept art. We look at features of the Bullet dynamics system with rigid body dynamics, parts body dynamics and deforming dynamics, and how to control these types to get the desired effects, as well as rendering options with multiple render passes for the final compositing. In the first part we cover how to build and prepare objects for use with dynamics, and shatter them with Modeler's Fracture tool which accompanies Bullet dynamics. We set up a shot of a mug that is fractured by a bullet and then sent to Layout for a parts body simulation.
