Up and Down + Balloons Tutorial


Here's a new video by Sottozen AND a tutorial on how they created the balloons effect.

Hello guys and welcome to our first "long" tutorial. It's about rigid bodies simulation in Blender 2.74.

I hope that my bad English is not "too" bad for you :)

This tutorial shows how we made the balloons simulation in Blender that we used for our short video "Up and down".

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.
