Adaptation B: nCloth & Volume Axis Field Test #1
As I searched online for some useful effects in Maya, I came across a tutorial that used nCloth to produce the effect of an object dissolving. To do this, I took a sphere and detached the faces. I then converted the sphere into an nCloth and turned off the gravity. I then made a Volume Axis Field and messed around with some of the settings and keyed the location of the Field so it made the separate faces to dissolve into different directions. It may be interesting to layer this effect on top of some other randomised elements, or randomise the location or effect of the Field in some way. Either way, I think this looks interesting and could become useful in the future.
