  1. Made this a while ago, finally got around to uploading it to gumroad. https://gum.co/ofsD
  2. Tree and Foliage Tools

    Ultimately I would like to update it to use a system like this https://vimeo.com/229252148 . It's finding the time to work on it, though since people still seem to be enjoying it and using it maybe I'll be more inspired to find the time.
  3. Tree and Foliage Tools

    Don't have any plans to add to this at this point in time, there are already quite a lot of really nice tree growing/making systems around. I do have plans for some other things though, that aren't already done so well.
  4. Procedural Shells

    So no recorded tutorial but I did finally get around to finishing this. It's not super complicated, you should be able to pull it apart and figure out how it works. https://gum.co/shells
  5. There is the fluid compress if you are working with FLIP, I assume you could adapt it to work with other points for viewport visualization. You could also just delete every X point with a delete SOP or wrangle, a bit hackneyed though. Maybe someone else has a better solution.
  6. Staying motivated

    Yeah I get that, totally normal. I don’t know that there is a way to remove that inertia completely. The motivation is coming from time invested in a project, so until you have invested some time. The only thing I can think of is to eliminate distractions in those early stages of a project.
  7. Thickness mask to @Cd

    You could use the intersect function in VEX
  8. Staying motivated

    I tend to go through phases of motivation, sometimes you just need to have a break for awhile and recharge. I find having good challenge helps or by breaking down a larger project into smaller goals.
  9. If it’s only ever running over a tube you could easily make my solution fully procedural by linking the group by range and vex to the number of divisions. For some thing more complex a volume and attribute from volume might be the way to go.
  10. Is the idea that it will always be a tube with a set number of rows and columns? Or do you want a solution that will work with more complex geometry that might not be consistent down the whole length?
  11. Like this? FindthecenterTest.hipnc
  12. Procedural Pyramid for destruction?

    What kind of pyramid do you want? Smooth flat sides or blocky sides?
  13. Old School Methods

    Yeah, that's a great place to start. Before you know it you will be writing blocks of code
  14. Old School Methods

    Well no, obviously not. And this is all just my opinion, but VEX and it's seamless integration is a large part of what makes Houdini so amazing. You can do just fine without touching it but you are ignoring a powerful tool. You can do everything in VOPs I suppose, but it's easier to just write a few lines of code sometimes. You don't need a computer science or a mathematics degree to start using it, I certainly don't have those. If you are already using Houdini you are using computational logic a lot of the time, so why not just learn some syntax. But again, totally up to you. Just an opinion from someone who didn't touch VEX at all to start with and now loves it.
  15. Random shooting box

    Well, do you want your boxes to shoot forward dynamically as rigid bodies or do to just want to animate them travelling forward over time?
