I was interested in learning more about how to create a physics animation effect, similar to those that I've seen in demos or in live sites (like kairoswatches.com).
Specifically, I'm interested in learning more about what goes into the creation of say....a field of star-esque lights that just link and float about behind other things (for instance).
I'm not trying to have someone make something for me, but while I am an experienced front-end developer, I find the physics stuff slightly intimidating.
In summary, if anyone can recommend some resources/methodologies that would best help me with what I'm trying to achieve I'd appreciate it. If I need to add/provide any other info, just let me know. Thanks!
