About This File

Here's a 20 minute tutorial on creating a Jigsaw Puzzle animation using a Fracture Object. The tutorial is recorded using R12. Users of newer versions should be able to follow along without too many problems.

The tutorial covers extruding the puzzle splines, setting up the Fracture object, getting around the problem of the material slipping on the pieces. The tutorial shows 2 ways to animate the pieces, first with a Random Effector and secondly with Dynamics.

I didn't mention in the tutorial but if you are using Dynamics instead of the Fracture Object you don't actually need the Fracture object. The Fracture Object is only required if you are using MoGraph Effectors.

This tutorial is hosted on Vimeo. Clicking on the download button will take you there. You will be able to download the original high res version rather than watching the low quality streaming version. The download button also has a link to download the scene files.
