Recreate the Patronus effect from the Harry Potter series. Explore all the challenges that occur when creating simulations based on other objects. We take it a step further and simulate on animated geometry.

About the course
We’re going to look into different ways to create particle sources and how to advect particles with velocity fields. We are going to create velocity fields with Volume VOPS & Pyro simulations.
We will use different methods to art direct particles and how to optimize the setup at every step, so our simulations run smooth and fast!
Rendering & Compositing
We are going to render everything using Redshift, and then use Nuke to composite all of the layers to get the final look. So I hope you will enjoy this course, and let’s get started.
