How to Create Animated Wavy Strings with Animation Nodes

Zach Hixson Uses Animation Nodes and Sine Waves to Create Animated Wavey strings in Blender.

Zach Hixson has been on a tear lately covering the fundamentals of problem-solving using math and how those solutions can offer tools for creating motion graphics with Blender’s Animation Nodes. His latest tutorial works on sine waves and uses them to create a neat-looking wavy string effect.

Hixson’s new tutorial series covers much math as the solution for plenty of visual problems, and this one is no different. Zach dives into how sine waves work and how to employ them within Animation Nodes. Dixson hopes to teach methods that you can use to bring your imagination to life, solving your problems when working with the procedural Nodes.
