Ribbon gift bow untying Sept. 6, 2017, 7:34 a.m.

Hello I would like to make an animation of a ribbon bow that you see on a gift box such as this,1286621492,2/stock-photo-gold-gift-bow-isolated-on-white-62683189.jpg []

The ribbon would be tied in the bow shape and need to untie in a realistic manner. I'm unsure of what would be the best approach to achieve this. If anyone has advice on how to do this I would be grateful.

you can get some idea from here

Thank you very much Rizviali, that's exactly what I wanted to know and I got it working now.
I tried a similar solution initially but couldn't get it to work but at least I know I was on the right track.

Need help turning character into sand May 10, 2017, 12:19 p.m.

Hi I would like to do an animation of a character turning into sand. I just used the shelf tool to create grains from the character which works but since it just sources the points from frame 1 it doesn't have any of the motion of the character animating. All the particles start being affected by gravity from frame 1.

I want the particles to follow the same motion of the character animating for a bit and then it starts to fall apart.
Any help?
