Particle experiments

September 9th, 2008 admin 3 comments

Here’s some small experiments I did in ActionScript 3 with particles in combination with perlin noise determining how they move.

In all cases it’s a bunch of particles placed in a circle, each one having its position linked to a randomly chosen pixel in a scrolling perlin noise filled bitmap. The third example has only a few particles and interconnects them with a curve, creating a moving type of amorphous blob.

Edit: I’ve added a small motion blur effect to the globule to make it a little bit more interesting, visually.
