  1. I think I know the tutorial you are referring to, but imho it´s way too long-winded for the result. What is it you are trying to achieve, anyways?
  2. Ah I see. Something like this? voronoi_cube.hipnc
  3. I still have to look into how to do it with volumes, but here is a quick setup using VEX. voronoi_cells.hipnc
  4. You can also append a ramp after a random VOP to control the ratio. random_ramp_vop.hipnc
  5. That´s what I thought, too. There are threads about this and even a dedicated page in the documentation: http://sidefx.com/docs/houdini15.5/network/best_practices
  6. How about selecting specific points and connecting them with findshortestpath?
  7. Once you are more advanced you could also shape the bottle using VOPs. bottle_2.hipnc
  8. You can push points, edges and primitives inwards with the (soft) peak node.
  9. You can also set a vertical grid to rows and put a code like this into a wrangle: float rad = chf('radius'); float rot = chf('rotation'); float time = chf('speed') * @Time; float prim = chf('offset') * @primnum; float surp = clamp(time - prim, 0, 1); float side = fit01(@ptnum % 2, -1, 0.2); float bbox = relbbox(0, @P).y * rot; float grow = rad * side * surp; @P.x = sin(bbox) * grow; @P.z = cos(bbox) * grow; helix_line_growth.hipnc
  10. Create a polyfill to close the holes for the time being, put them in a patch group under "Output Groups", and remove the primitives in "patch" group when you are done?
  11. It still occurs after updating. Python 2.7.6 (default, Oct 26 2016, 20:33:43) [GCC 4.8.4] on linux2 Houdini 16.0.633 hou module imported. Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> ---------------------------------------- Exception happened during processing of request from ('', 34580) Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/python2.7/SocketServer.py", line 593, in process_request_thread self.finish_request(request, client_address) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/SocketServer.py", line 334, in finish_request self.RequestHandlerClass(request, client_address, self) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/SocketServer.py", line 651, in __init__ self.finish() File "/usr/lib/python2.7/SocketServer.py", line 710, in finish self.wfile.close() File "/usr/lib/python2.7/socket.py", line 279, in close Can it be because I installed some Editor named PyCharm or because of the python version in use?
  12. You can control the amount of displacement inside a pointVOP using noise with a displace along normal-node.
  13. It's just a start, but you could turn colorful points into quads and let them randomly overwrite each other. opus_pattern2.hipnc
  14. I guess its assuming a square shaped image. probably the height value has to be multiplied by the aspect ratio.
  15. float t = chf("Speed") * @Time; float s = chf('Spread') * @Time; @P += set(sin(t) * s, 0, cos(t) * s);
