Options

Crack Option:

  • 'From Child Verts': Use child's vertices and position for origin of crack.
  • 'Scale X/Y/Z': Scale of crack. To make long crack like bark of tree, decrease scale of an axis.
  • 'Max Crack': Max number of crack. Notice that if you increase it too much, calculation will take long time.
  • 'Margin Size': Margin of crack. To make more gap of crack, increase it.
  • 'Extrude': Extrusion size along with object's normal.
  • 'Random': Randomness of crack' rotation and scale.

Material Preset:

  • 'Organic Mud': organic mud material
  • 'Mud': Mud Material
  • 'Tree': Tree Material
  • 'Rock': Rock Material




Tips

  • Objects which have many vertices or complex shape could take huge amount of time to make crack. So using simple object is recommended, or simplify an object by applying decimate modifier in advance.
