EGG BREAKING


ABOUT Egg Breaking

I had been pondering about working on a personal effects project. Something I can get a reference for easily, but something that wasn't commonly attempted. So I decided to replicate a egg breaking effect. Taking advantage of Houdini's constraint system (glue & spring constraints) and flip fluid solver, I was able to explore thin shelled cracking, interaction of two fluids with different viscosity. I would like to take this a step further and implement the inner membrane tear.

Software used: Houdini, Nuke
