Lion King should have been made in Blender ;-) Moving leaves

Hey! Blender Bob here! In Lion King, 90% of the time, leaves are not moving! Too complicated? Too heavy? Ridiculously large caches? Well, not if you use #blender3d. This is a quick and dirty way to move leaves.

I've been working in the VFX film industry for 25 years now. I've been using Maya since 1995 but with the release of Blender 2.80, I made the switch and I'm now fully committed to Blender! You can see the projects I worked on on IMDB.


  1. Fantastic tip! I like it. I'm daunted by several large scale shots of Star Wars ships flying through a canyon environment, but this is a nice little trick that I will likely use!
