Welcome to the Complete Guide to Dynamic Paint in Blender 2.9. In this class you will learn everything there is to know about Dynamic Paint and how it works. It was also created for all skill levels. So whether you are a complete beginner or an intermediate Blender user, this class is for you! Not many people know about Dynamic Paint or how it works, so that is why I created this class where more can learn about this amazing modifier and create their own animations!

What is Dynamic Paint?

Dynamic paint is a modifier and physics system that can turn objects into paint canvases and brushes. Doing this allows you to create vertex colors, image sequences or displacement. This makes effects like footsteps in the snow, raindrops and paint that sticks to walls very easy to create!

In the first couple sections we will discuss all of the different settings and values and how they change how the simulation works. You will see side by side comparisons so it's easy to understand exactly what is happening. A variety of other topics also covered include adding dynamic paint to materials, creating footprints in the snow, paint drying effects and much more.

One of the best ways to learn is to create something yourself, so that is why I have included 3 tutorials in which we use Dynamic Paint to create some high quality animations.

The first one is about creating an abstract displacement effect. You will learn how to export an image sequence from Dynamic Paint and use that for the displacement. Then to top it off you will be creating a glowing material.

The 2nd tutorial is about creating a disintegrating fire effect. This tutorial will cover many topics including: fire simulations, dynamic weight painting, proximity brushes and fire materials.

Finally the last tutorial will be about creating a seamless rain drop animation. For this one we use particles and dynamic waves to learn how to make the animation seamless so it can loop over and over again.

If you are looking to learn about Dynamic Paint and how it all works in Blender this is the class for you! So hit that enrollment button and let's get started! I look forward to seeing what you create!
