Watch Evolution: two minutes of Softimage particle magic

Eric ‘Mootzoid’ Mootz has released ‘Evolution’, a cool little demo showing some of the new features in emFlock2 version 2.3, the latest update to his Softimage flocking system.

The main point of the video is to show the way the new Quantize Volume, Twist Position and Equal Distribution compounds can be used to generate the shapes the particles morph into – but even if you don’t use Softimage, it’s two minutes of darn pretty animation.

The plugin itself requires Softimage 2011 or above and a 64-bit OS, and costs €99 (around $120).
