CGMatter shows how to create a procedural crater that you can throw on anything.
Do you need to add some destruction to some shots as VFX? Check out this new tutorial from CGMatter that shows how you can create a procedural crater using Blender that you can throw pretty much on anything. The best part of it is that the node editor drives the effect so you can animate it or alter its appearance quickly.
The tutorial works with noise and displacements to create the basis of the visual effect. CGMatter puts together a lot of fast-paced tutorials that cover a wide range of visual effects topics using Blender. You can help support his tutorial efforts by becoming a patron.
