Introduction

Dynamic paint is a modifier and physics system that can turn objects into paint canvases and brushes, creating vertex colors, image sequences or displacement. This makes many effects possible like, for example footsteps in the snow, raindrops that make the ground wet, paint that sticks to walls, or objects that gradually freeze.

Activating the modifier

How to activate the Dynamic Paint.

Dynamic Paint can be activated from the 「Physics」 tab of the 「Properties」 editor.

Types

Modifier itself has two different types:

Canvas
Makes object receive paint from Dynamic Paint brushes.
Brush
Makes object apply paint on the canvas.

注釈

You can also enable brush and canvas simultaneously. In that case same object’s 「brush」 does not influence its 「canvas」, but can still interact with other objects in the scene.
