How to Create a Simple Bifrost Knit Effect

Maximilian Schönherr walks through how to create a simple knit effect using Bifrost Graph.

Bifrost allows artists to work procedurally and create some fantastic effects using a node-based setup in the Maya Bifrost Graph Editor. Inevitably when the word “procedural” shows up, some natural experiments occur. One of them is creating a knit animation. In this short tutorial, Maximilian Schönherr shows how to create a knit structure and shade it using Arnold Render.

Creating a knit effect is a popular topic as it involves a lot of things to happen all at once, and it looks impressive once it is complete. Check out some more tutorials and assets that use a knit effect in Blender, Houdini, Maya, and Cinema 4D, here.
