This course introduces you to world of dynamic simulation! Things like smoke, fire, soft and hard falling objects, fabric, pouring liquids, and more - All of this is accomplished with dynamic simulation in Blender. The key is that the computer does most of the work for you, as opposed to manually having to animate super complex motion like cloth blowing in the wind. Dynamic simulation is a powerful asset in the digital artists' toolbox.

Chapter 1: Particles
Control points in 3D space to mimic effects like dust in the air, snow falling from the sky, confetti, and much more.
* Emission
* Cache
* Velocity & Collision

Chapter 2: Hair
Another version of particle effect capable of simulating large quantities of hairs follicles.
* Hair Growth & Dynamics

Chapter 3: Force Fields
Objects that mimic natural phenomena like wind, gravity, magnetism, and more.

* Force Field Basics
* Types of Forces
* Tip: Animating Particles Along a Curve

Chapter 4: Rigid Bodies
Dynamic simulation of hard, rigid (non-deforming) objects.
* Active & Passive
* Collisions
* Constraints
* The Rigid Body World

Chapter 5: Cloth
Dynamic simulation of fabric, clothing etc.
* Simulating Cloth
* Cloth Collisions
* Sewing Springs

Chapter 6: Soft Bodies
* Soft Body Physics
* Soft Body Edges

Chapter 7: Smoke
Simulation representative of fire and smoke
* Smoke Domain
