AR Cherry Blossom Ballerinas

Cherry Blossom Ballerina by Dunaway Smith

EXPERIENCE: When you get close to a blossom, it detaches from the tree and begins to dance around you in circles, indefinitely. It’s like having your own private sugar plum fairies.

PROCESS: I created the blossoms/ballerinas/tree in Blender. Then, I attached an armature and created the animations. I exported the tree and a blossom ballerina as GLB files and brought them into Adobe Aero. From there, I added the proximity trigger and added some additional animations/functionality so that they orbit around you.
