Aran Jevi says:

Great tut! Particularly liked the Lighting and Texturing part! ;))

Short Tutors says:

materials ? render setting ?

ArgoBeats says:

Very nice, thank you… that step at 7:28 is useless btw, when the Force Mode says “Exclude” it means it takes in account all the forces in the scene.

msklaimelaim says:

The lesson liked it, but I eventually sphere somehow broken?!

Austin Pinilla says:

can you do the lighting and material tutorial for this one please

Missham says:

Thanks for sharing awesome tutorials every time! But I wonder how do you set the final video size because mine is always blurry when I post on IG.

VX VINES says:

I am not able to render it….when. I render a frame it just shows a ball

Anh Nguyễn says:

Could you share your experience on how to have the render result like in the thumbnail? (bright, soft color)? Thank you!

Calico Studios says:

Hey Dave, I was wondering if you have tried out turbulence FD? I have been experimenting with it for a project I’m working on, and I was wondering if you have given it a go?

Hussam Shaaban says:

I’m new here, thank you for your excellent explaining…
Greetings from Syria.

VX VINES says:

Алексей Юрасов says:

Thank you! But how to fix lag frame when spheres transform as soft bodies?)

Heng Wei Nien says:

I have a question about gap size between balls each other. How can I mack them more closer ? The Collision Margin is not work for the soft body tag. What I need to adjust ?
