View Full Version : Paper Explosion / Dynamics

07-21-2011, 10:16 AM
Hi there together,
i'm planning to do an animation of an exploding drawer with lots of paper and documents in it, and I'm trying to figure out, how to get a start there. I'm a really novice, when it comes to animation and would appreciate any hint in this case.
Do I have to rig the paper and try it with soft bodies? Are there any plugins I could try out?

Kind regards and thanks in advance
