Four Balls in Infinite Motion on a Mechanism in Infinite Rotation

Endless rotation...

Some final animation tests in wireframe mode, it's better to see all objects movements !

The network for the scenery modeling: just some tubes made with line, curve and sweep nodes.
Cube and cylinder for the general shape, and some booleans to create the concave paths. That's all ! 😁😁😉

Few animation keyframes along the path way of the big ball... Yep, it's a "follow path" system with keyframes to perfectly align the placement ! 😉

For the tiny balls, it's an another system, the "blend" node of Houdini. That permit you to mix as you want several targets for only one object ! Cool and useful ! 😉

Hi everybody ! TURN ON THE SOUND ! It's better with...😁 Here is a quick breakdown of this new loop... 😉
The modeling isn't complicated, you can see the network in the pictures, "basic" shapes with some booleans and polybevel for the esthetics look ! 😁
I experienced a mix between the classic "follow path" system with some particular keyframes to align all movements, and the "blend" target system. In Houdini, with that you can animate an object with several targets, and you can mix them with few keyframes... Really powerful and useful ! 😁😁
I rendered in Redshift with my 2 CG card : RTX2080Ti and GTX1080 in only 30 minutes for 300 frames

At the end, I made a quick video editing with Adobe Premiere Pro to setup the "good" sounds...
Well, that's all for this loop, see you soon for my next video ! 😉
