Modeling: Morphing 3D Sparkler
On this page you will find images and an animation that show the details of a set of classic sparklers, the old-fashioned and the other wrapped in colorful tissue. In this example you will see an example of how the sparklers look rendered, their mesh, and just one of the many examples of flattened textures that can be used to change the sparkler's appearance.
This was an idea of pure fun, created for the 4th of July holiday in 2012. Although designed to be used in Poser, it could be used in any application, and has a number of morph targets created for it that allow the sparkles to move, re-size, or vanish entirely, depending upon the whim of the individual using it.
