Merry Christmas everybody!

And a quick breakdown.


Step 1. Model a Christmas bulb and cord with a bone chain for deforming.
126227

Step 2. Use the bones to bend the cord into a tangled mess.
126228

Step 3. Add more Christmas bulbs to the now tangled mess of a cord.
126229

Step 4. Add instances of the Christmas lights, setup a camera, add lights to the bulbs and press render.

Step 5. Add some color grading and finally some text. Merry Christmas!

Nice set up (did you place all those lights by hand I wonder?). Can I add my card to this thread rather than start another, I'd just spent a hour or so making it and it seems appropriate to place it here on a thread called Merry Christmas.

Perhaps we can all put our LW made cards here, in the spirit of goodwill to all men (women, children, cats, dogs and anyone else we care about).

Nice card djw! I like your font treatment - is that a standard font or something you did? And yes I did place all those lights by hand. I went the Luxigon route but couldn't get them to work in 2015 so just said, screw it, placed them myself. :)

Yeah, you think you'll do something the clever way and in the end do it by hand just to get it done. The snow on the font was added in Photoshop.

Merry Christms all, the locals don't celebrate it till the sixth of Jan here in Spain (no don't live here just visiting) but all the ex pat Brits will be obviously, watching them loosing off fireworks in the hills from the veranda right now. Have a great one and a great new year.
