DESTRUCTION FX

Learn how to use the Bullet Rigid Body solver to create highly complex simulations of large data sets. Fracture objects based on their material properties then use the RBD solver to bring together forces, constraints and collisions for complete control. You can also add in effects for dust, debris and grains to enhance the look of your shot.
