Martian Graphics Time & Space Nodes for Blender

Chris J. Randolph
12 ratings

Martian Graphics is a custom node library for Blender Geometry Nodes, focused on procedural modeling, animation, & motion graphics. The pack includes over 70 custom nodes designed around the creation of seamless looping animations ("lupes"). Create particle fountains and bend them into any shape. Rebuild meshes as wireframes with each edge its own animatable instance. Deform, move, and rotate objects with looping animated noise. And so much more!

New Horizons is the newest major update, featuring a massive reorganization to make nodes easier to find and reworked modeling nodes that are easier to control and produce more consistent results. The collection is categorized into Animators, Data (operating on vector and float values), Generators, Instance, Loop, and Modifiers. Martian Graphics also includes a small variety of creative shaders, including half-tones, chromatic aberration, thin film interference, and glitter.

Martian Graphics is intended for intermediate and advanced users who already have a solid foundation in Blender Geometry Nodes and procedural workflows. This isn't a collection of prepackaged effects and assets, but rather a set of tools that extend and augment Blender's default nodes, allowing you to work faster and smarter. This is an ongoing project, and will be updated periodically with new node groups and newer versions of these initial offerings.

To install, unzip the archive, and place the included .Blend file in your Blender Asset Library folder. If you're unfamiliar with this process, complete instructions can be found at:
