  1. Python vs C

    Hi there, I am learning to program to improve my ability with Houdini. I was studying C, but some people told me that learning Python could be better if I was planning to use Houdini. I have seen people using Python in Houdini, but VEX is similar to C? What would you recommend ? Thanks
  2. Advice for a new PC - Ryzen

    Thanks, do you need extra cooling with the 1700? Or the one that comes by default is good enough?
  3. Advice for a new PC - Ryzen

    Hi, I need to get a new PC, with a price range of 1500 - 2000€ I was thinking something like this: - AMD ryzen 7 1700 or 1700x. 320€ vs 400€ - Nvidia 1070 = 450€ - RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR4. 2 x 16 Gb = 328€ - SSD 500Gb (Samsung 850 EVO) = 155€ - HDD 3Tb = 90€ - Motherboard, Asus Prime X370-Pro = 155€ - Corsair cooling Hydro series /or/ Enermax Liqmax 240= 85€ - 750W = 100€ - A box My biggest doubt is about the proccesor, Ryzen 1700 or 1700x. Also, I picked a random motherboard, no idea about them. Thanks!
  4. Hi, I am trying to figure out how to make sections and project them into a grid to obtain a plan. Is there a better way of doing this? Is it possible to project only the contour of a mesh (for example, a sphere without the polygons)? Thanks! Section project.hipnc
  5. Normals noob question

    Thanks, I will study that archive
  6. Hi, Why is it necessary to post-compute normals with with nodes like facet or normal? Aren´t the normals always there there in a surface? And... if a normal is supposed to be perpendicular to a surface, what is happening when you change its direction?
  7. Copy stamp / for each loop

    This is amazing thanks So, copy stamping is deprecated now? According to this: "Copy stamping is no longer the recommended way to create variations when copying to points. Using a For-each loop and attributes instead is more efficient, easier to set up, and easier and understand".
  8. Hello, I made a grid with circles that change size depending on how close are to a point. I used a copy stamp SOP for it, but after reading in the Side FX site, they said that it is better to use the for each loop instead of the copy stamp.I cant figure how to achieve it. Also, I am trying to make a grid with circles that change density from left to right with a random effect. Thanks! Grid circle.hipnc
  9. NAS

    Until yesterday I didn´t even know that NAS existed, now I want to get one. Specially to have all my data in one place instead of having various external Hard Drives and have a RAID configuration in case a HD gets broken. Do you have any suggestions?
  10. Hi, I am trying to join a point with all the points in a grid. I am using the Add SOP, but with this method I have to write the points one by one. Is there any better option for this? Thanks! distance points.hipnc
  11. I am reading that you need to be able to develop tools for other artists as well. But, do they mean tools inside of Houdini?
  12. Wondering if I should learn scripting
  13. CG Workshop?

    Thank you for answering here. I am planning to make the course in summer time, during holidays. How much time would you say it is required to make the course for each week? Actually, I don´t have 2 months holidays, so at some point I will be working. But I am planning on spending as much time as I have available during the course. Also, I have no idea at all about Houdini. Is that a problem for the course? Or should I start by myself in the meanwhile. Zetha
