Yup, little pyschopaths on my hands right? #savethedefaultcube   If you’ve been wanting to pass on the gift of 3D […]

In this tutorial I’ll show you how to create a dust in the wind type visual effect in Blender. All it takes is a few modifiers and a simple particle system to create a convincing disintegration effect of a stone column, producing a stream of dust particles blowing away in the wind. This effect can be easily set up on any object and dust is only one of many different effects that can be applied to the disintegration animation.
