Maximilian Schönherr shows how to create an object to points compound using Bifrost Graph.
Maya’s new Bifrost Graph makes it easy to share compounds. That is likely why you can find a lot of effects free to download so you can tinker. Artists will riff off of one premise and add to it to create another. We’ve seen an object to points generator in Bifrost before. Still, Maximilian Schönherr shows how to create a slightly more advanced version of the compound.
Schönherr uses two particle-systems and two collisions nodes to create a scene that animates around the Bifrost object to points compound. You can find a lot of Compounds that are free to download in Autodesk’s Area.
