  1. Hi everyone, I'm usualy a maya user and I'm starting to use Houdini at a personal level for the moment. My goal is to try to do a complete character facial Rigg and I'm gonna need some help I think. I usualy do a combination bones/skinning and blendshapes. I'm wondering how to mix different shapes and apply a corrective blendshape on a combination of 2, 3, 4 blendshapes for example. I saw how to connect basic blendshapes, the problem is how to call a third blendshape when you activate two shapes ? And is there a tool that enables you to sculpt a mix and extract the corrective blendshapes? Do I have to do this manually but substracting the shapes on my mix to get the corrective shape and make an expression that activate blendshape C(corrective) when mixing blendshape A and B ? The way I use to do that was by using a plugin call BCS for maya. It enables you to easily split and mix several blendshape and that what I'm looking for in Houdini. It may not be the right philosophy to try to do this way so If anyone have some experiences in this area or some advice that would be very much appreciated. Have a great day and hope to get some feedback. $ Cheers,
  2. Hi all, I can't get a skinned object with a corrective blendshape before the deform sop out of houdini via fbx. Either the skinning works, or the blendshape, not both. I tried all the combinations in the fbx export (Force Blendshape, Force Skin...). Attached is a simple setup with a ROP network containing the fbx ROP. Maybe somebody can take a look. Appreciate the help blendshape_fbx_test.hiplc
  3. Hi, I'm having a problem with fur crawling over the surface of my object when a blendshape kicks in. Any idea how to keep the points from moving while blending shapes? Can someone confirm.
  4. Hello all. I have about 30 animated points swarming through my scene. I use a blendshape to get them all lined up in their final, resting position. However, the blendshape is applying this transform to all my points at the same time and I'd like them to come in just one at a time,sequentially. Any ideas on how I can achieve this?
  5. Arc interpolated shapes

    I tried to rebuild the awesome arc interpolated shaped tool that Ahmidou Lyazidi did in Softimage a long time ago. This is very useful to remove the linear motion of face shapes without a complex rig setup. I just need to find a more elegant way to display the vectors, as well as isolating all the shape points from the static ones to group them. Please have a look and let me know how I can improve this. Here is the old video by Ahmidou https://vimeo.com/8637260 Arc_Interpolate_101_wz.hipnc
  6. Greetings to the greatest 3D community! I'd like to introduce you my new digital asset "RampBlend". The idea behind “RampBlend” is to help character riggers and animators get rid of complex muscle-systems which are often too slow, troublesome and tedious to set up. It was specifically created with the concept of “corrective blend shapes” in mind, where changes to the Blend factor trigger sequential morph targets. I'd like to thank this community and Mangi who kindly shared the base scene for my tests. Any comments or suggestions to help improve this asset are more than welcomed. You can download "RampBlend" at this url: http://www.orbolt.co.../ik_::RampBlend Introductory video (vimeo HD720): http://vimeo.com/74942919 Introductory video (Youtube HD1080):
