Tutorial: How to create a bird flock in Blender 2.5+

I just finished my newest tutorial, i hope you enjoy it. Its about how to create a flock of birds using particles, and how to animate them so that they look realistically.

The tutorial was made in collaboration with AgenZasBrothers.



    • I agree, this is not realistic, but if you dont have it as scene focus, it will increase your scenes realism.

      I did not expect the tutorial result to be photorealistic, when he's mostly teaching technical stuff.
