ILM RIGID SIMULATION ON VARIOUS SHOWS
Rigid simulations are some of my favorite types of sims to create. From the Pacific Rim Golden Gate bridge deformation and destruction to Avengers ground ripping, to Ironman plane wing shredding to destroyed buildings, busted walls, cracked tarmacs and damaged robots, there’s something satisfying about rigid simulations. I like the combination of rigging and simulation it takes to create them sometimes. We also use rigids for Davy Jones tentacles as well as creatures that have chains, ropes, etc among many other uses. Here are a few examples of my work regarding rigid simulations.
