I made these video to practice lighting and simulation/dynamics. It took me about 12 hours to make and about 10 hours to render.
I had some real trouble with the breaking mug but after some feedback I received on a forum I tackled that as well.
The most important things to pay attention too are:
- Lighting (a dusk like attic like lighting)
- Bouncing ball
- Breakage of the mug
- Interaction with dust, light and mug as the ball moves through the room.
