  1. Really loved this piece by Alexa Sirbu and Lukas Vojir. Notice on their portfolio sites they also worked on the Logitech G433 piece at Man vs Machine which I thought was primarily a Simon Holmedal piece. I think it highlights the fact that most really great Houdini work is the result of a collaboration. Since I'm getting heavily into Nuke I was wondering if any experts could hazard a guess as to whether the DOF in this and the Logitech piece was rendered or done in post? http://www.simonholmedal.com/logitech-g433/
  2. I know GPU renderers take advantage of multiple GPU's, but does H16 OpenCL performance also benefit?
  3. Anyone know who does the VFX for Neill Blomkamp's Oatstudio project? Of those posted on youtube so far, I like his 20 minute short Rakka ow
  4. Thought this was a pretty cool use of houdini for music visualisation http://www.creativeapplications.net/sound/the-creatures-of-prometheus-generative-visualisation-of-beethovens-ballet-with-houdini/ https://vimeo.com/229376415
  5. Open Source mocap?

    Anyone know of a good source for mocap data, (preferably open source though am willing to pay!). In particular I am looking for dancing, and any sort of martial arts movement. I am already familiar with the Carnegie Mellon database http://mocap.cs.cmu.edu/
  6. This is something I would normally do in After Effects but I am increasingly trying to do everything in Houdini. Lets say you have an image sequence of a face or other object against green screen or other plain background. In the compositing network, how would you increase the Canvas area without affecting the size of the face? The attached explains what I am trying to do
  7. This is a recurring problem I am facing when using a Copy to Points operation. In the attached close up image you can see the issue. I want the geometry to touch but not intersect with each other. Is there perhaps a solution using Vex or?? copyToPoint.hiplc
  8. Hi So selecting Edit Parameter Interface I am able to duplicate Uniform Scale and then set the range to what I want. But then I am left with duplicate Uniform Scale parameters(see image). How does one delete existing parameters in default SOPs like Transform?
  9. should have mentioned I need against blue-green screen. Might cough up some $ for istock
  10. For a current displacement test I'd like to use a human face with changing expression. Does something like this exist either as a model or png sequence somewhere online?
  11. This is driving me crazy. Trying to get a simple colormap VOP example working. No errors but my image is not showing up mapped to my grid. Could any vexperts possibly have a look at my .hip? As good as the revised H16 documentation is, it could greatly benefit from actual downloadable .hip files! colorMap_VOP.hiplc
  12. Unable to evaluate expression

    Thanks. yes that gets the same result but still would like to know why I get the error.:( Discovered if I simply set a keyframe first (becomes green) BEFORE pasting the expression I get no errors. Can anyone explain why?
  13. Hi Does anyone see anything wrong with the following expression? Using for the Z parameter in a Point SOP. Keep getting pic("../comp/OUT/",$BBX,$BBY,D_CLUM) unabletoevaluateExpression.hiplc
