Today I was playing around with Blender’s compositing nodes. I created a node group that roughly simulates chromatic aberration. It’s not super accurate (does not simulate the way an actual round lens affects light), but in a pinch it’ll do.
TL;DR: I took apart some CD drives and turned them into a very terrible etch-a-sketch type thing. In the future I hope to give control over to a computer so as to have a robot minion very terrible CNC drawing machine.
After posting Dandelions the other day, I was asked by someone whether I knew of any better ways to make grass. I did not.
Today, however, I spent some time playing around with the hair simulator trying to get a half-decent grass effect. The intention of today is less a lovely render, and more a basic guide to making your own grass!
