  1. Here is a scene, simplified, but still displaying the misalignment https://www.dropbox.com/s/dj3m3y5qzlnii2i/crown_2_43_023_SEND_Forum.rar?dl=0 thanks!
  2. Hi people... I got some serious vdb issues, where i got some vdb combining, tweaking,,,combining with other poly to vdb , etc. I have some xfroms on the geom before it gets converted to vdb and combined. It goes well for a while, i make keyframes on the xforms...and at some point on the vdb combine, the xforms stuff up and move out of position. It seems not to like xfroms up the chain, pre vdb conversion. I do get some odd warnings on some of the VDB combine, i was getting is a 'mismatch surface & surface value mismatch (0.025 & 0.075)' when both A&B vdbs are 0.025, (but gets fixed with a re sample before going in to the vdb combine on both A& B I also get a warning on 'surface & surface transforms don't match' on the vdb combine that stuffs up my transforms. Pain! I would try to do all my geo transforms then save an alembic and load back without extra xforms, but i do need to line this up to the millimeter, and I can't due to things going off ..... I am runnning 14.0.395 thanks in advance !
  3. Remote desktop

    i didn't even know it existed! thanks Ciaran!
  4. Remote desktop

    thanks guys, will try them out. the HP one sounds good,,,but i will have to get a HP box..not a bad excuse
  5. Remote desktop

    Hi ! I got an office space where i have the machines /server /fast interneto..when working past dinner time or at unreasonable hours (often) I do it from home, by using RDC (remote desktop connection) on win7, it works well with most apps, but Houdini wont run trough it. It runs using TeamViewer,,,but is sloooooooooooow. I have a gaming video card at home and nothing too fancy at the office, which works fine, i don't know if this is a driver issue (got latest nvidia drivers) or some configuration i can change in houdini? thanks O/.
  6. id to PT

    cool, will try that ! ...one laaaast thing, I am now copying spheres to the particles, and i am again having to deal with the PT changing each frame and using Stamp fit01(rand($PT),0.02,0.05) , i get the spheres changing size each frame as they get assigned a new particle each time..not very nice bubbles! So i am again trying to find out why the real flow particle ID can't be accessed by more vanilla sop's. I don't mind getting to point wrangle but if there was an 'easier' or less code-y way of doing that? even if it is at the expense of performance,,as i am only dealing with a few thousand particles. thanks, O/.
  7. id to PT

    ahhhh!!! fanx!!
  8. id to PT

    muchas gracias guys... I am having now issues with the deleting side of things....using a group SOP by expression $CR == 0, works, but the the Blast, kind of wont refresh the selection
  9. id to PT

    I can't get this to work... the @realflowId is called @id but even with that i wont get random colors.....doh! one second... @Cd = {1,1,1}; @rand = rand(@id); if (@rand < 0.5) { @Cd = {0,0,0}; } boomshakalaka! thanks guys!!
  10. id to PT

    i modified ChristopherC wrangle a bit if (rand(@id) < 0.95) { removepoint(geoself(), @ptnum); } so i can delete as a percent, a good result but still curious on the renaming of attributes.
  11. id to PT

    hi Sebkaine, yes i got a sim from RF, each particle comes out with an id, that is constant, but houdini uses PT, which is not constant, so i tired to rename id to PT, with no luck
  12. id to PT

    thanks! it does the trick, but i would like to know why i cant access or change id to PT or group by id directly.
  13. id to PT

    hi, a simpleton question... I am importing particles from Real Flow, and want to group then delete every 10th particle or so, with Group By Range select 1 of 6 etc works fine except it uses PT, and this gets very chaotic as this order changes every frame. So i have been trying Attrib Rename, which technically works, i see the data is renamed to PT, but the Group is still picking by the original PT, i am not sure how to force the use of 'id' on group by expression....or if i need some extra tweaking somewhere else? thanks in advance Octavio
  14. VDB velocity from BIN particles

    thanks! will download...and persevere
  15. VDB velocity from BIN particles

    doh! thanks...that did something , but i am hardly getting any movement on the particles....time to re watch some tutorials.
