Chasing an alien thing through the ice caves

  • It’s getting away!  (larger version on YouTube)

I’ve been spending huge amounts of time studying Blender over the last few weeks. It’s insanely powerful, great fun, and excellent value for money (it’s free). However, it’s got so many functions and so many things you can tweak, that it takes a lot of learning.

This was a fun little exercise, an animation of chasing a blobby alien thing through caves. It took about a day to get my head around 10 seconds of animation, and 45 minutes to render it.

  • From the outside, the cave system looks like this:

  • Both the blobby thing and the camera are following along a three-dimensional path through the caves, a constant distance apart.

  • A larger image, showing a bit more detail.
