Sardi Pax shows how to simulate frost using particles/dynamic paint.
3D Artist Sardi Pax demonstrates how to make a great-looking frost effect using Blender, showing how to set up the scene along with the materials. The frost effect makes use of simulation and blender particles. The second part of the tutorial shows how to set up a blender scene using Dynamic Paint particles.
The two scenes composite together with a mask to create the final scene, offering some excellent how to simulate frost. Blender’s dynamic paint is a modifier and physics system that can turn objects into paint canvases and brushes. Dynamic Paint makes it easy to create a lot of effects like footsteps in the snow, rain and other effects.
