metaballs

“Use the updated Metaball object to recreate the T1000 liquid metal effect from Terminator 2. Prison bars are modeled with primitives and the “lines” and “triangle” modes of the Metaball Tag. The effect of the figure being repelled by the bars is achieved with a Negative influence setting. Finally an HDRI image is loaded into the environment channel of a material in order to get a realtime reflection preview.” – Donovan Keith | Maxon
