About 2 years ago I created a little SWF that generated cute little ‘fur balls’. I didn’t pay a lot of attention on this, moved to other stuff and lost it anywhere on a backup disk (not recovered yet). There was so much to discover in Actionscript 3.0 these days!
Last weekend I remembered and did some tests. It is actually quite simple. Move a lot of (millions!) particles and trace their path with a color. I am pretty sure, that software like Maya or several Photoshop plugins can do this as well. And probably much faster! Most of those tests below required hours of rendering. Anyway, I like the outcome of these three so far.
Make sure to watch them in 100%
