Dusty 001

For us, sometimes dust is a must. Especially for those nuances with which we are completely obsessed. If you also feel you need to summon up some dust to complete your scene, check out these 5 options for the hypoallergenic animated version of the real thing.

Inspiration

While Yanzi Papier is one of our paper to digital (with potential Virtual Reality possibilities) puppets in development, it has not yet made its appearance anywhere outside of our studio. We are using it to test our game engine to animation software pipeline, using Unity as a giant motion capture stage to see how Yanzi will perform. Stay tuned as we try to figure out why Yanzi is so entranced with the dust particles all around him!

Quick Tip

The best way to use this dust in a tracking shot similarly to snow, moving sideways through a scene, is to parent your camera and the layered dust to a null object that you animate along the X axis. Now your camera can have wiggle and dolly in and out of the scene without the dust feeling like a cheap overlay.
