Plant growth created with Xfrog 5 for Maya. Watch this video for a behind the scenes look!
The animated short “Outside In” is the master’s degree project of eight students from the University of Applied Sciences of Salzburg, Austria.
A part of the film shows the main character soaking up different materials by touching them. Xfrog for Maya was used for the absorption of wood. It allowed us to easily animate growing roots coming out of a tree onto his body and adding side branches and leaves which could also be animated according to his movement.
