  1. Graphing bitcoin in Houdini with python

    Interesting, I didn't know that. Perhaps SideFX would have some insight if you wanted to solve this puzzle. FWIW, we have implemented our own URI handlers pointed at our asset system using that class. It can be very intuitive if done right.
  2. houdini theme

    It looks really good -- does it exist on Orbolt, and for H16?

    Wish I could join you all! Have fun!
  4. Graphing bitcoin in Houdini with python

    Note sure if totally related, but did you know that you can use http:// and ftp:// URI's directly in file fields in Houdini? For example, you can refer to an image fetched by an http request directly in COPs, textures, backgrounds or wherever you encounter image paths. PS. You can add your own -- see the FS_ReaderHelper/etc docs

    Aw I love trip hop from the naughties! And yes; love Alexey's austere work

  7. Mantra vs Redshift

    I would say some huge studios are spinning up some departments upon some scope of work on Redshift. Most huge studios have thousands of headless blades in their render farm and far fewer with matching GPU resources. Software rendering will be around for years to come. Switching renderers is not trivial for for large, established pipelines for very many reasons. That said, Redshift does a great job. It's not nearly as flexible, broad and pipelineable (from Houdini) as Mantra, but produces good images, fast.
  8. Learning DOPS, motors, constraints etc

    These are seriously very cool experiments to watch. Thanks for these!

    Interesting little study on 'wrinkles' vs 'waves' over medium of varying viscosity, from a geeky blog with one of the best names! http://fuckyeahfluiddynamics.tumblr.com/post/157782397936/if-youve-ever-sat-out-on-a-lake-and-just-watched
  10. Houdini 17 Wishlist

    Houdini 16.0.535 Show VDB Voxel Size even in non-verbose mode to match H15.5 info. Well done!

    ... Except for the kitchen sink nodes: Facet and Divide. The functions in these nodes are so undiscoverable, IMHO. I would still live a true Tesselate function, and a Dice function (based on Mantra's dicing, adhering to the Measurer strategy).

    This sounds like an oversight (bug)
  13. Mesh Blend

    That's pretty impressive - the results look pretty good. Perhaps you could consider uploading that to Orbolt?
  14. Render history

    This is along the lines of the 'it' catalog from PrMan - and something I've been wanting to script for years; but unfortunately the hscript or python support in MPlay does not expose a Save function.
