1. ## Recreate C4D Push Apart Effector

Good morning or afternoon, or night! Sorry about my English, hope you can understand the meaning of my topic.. ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ This question has been bothering me for a long time - How to recreate C4D push apart effector in Houdini ? I have tried to use nearpoints (or pcfind or pgfind) vex/vop function to find each point's one (or two or three or more...) nearest points base on the push apart radius and calculate the push apart direction of the point. Just as shown below. And in my opinion, the iterations of push apart effector is shown below. But in this way, I get two problems ① When increasing the push apart iterations, the points do not translate smoothly but jumpily. So I think my idea is totally wrong. ② C4D push apart effector seems can intelligent detect the dense points' bbox center( even there are more than one dense area) and push the points apart from the bbox center, as shown below. But in my way, it is unobtainable. I know the point relax SOP, and it also not work well in this case, it is slower than C4D push apart effector and points translate jumpily too. So does anybody know the principle of the C4D push apart effector? Thanks all.
2. ## With the added viewport commands in Houdini for modelling, does it now compare favorably to modelling in C4D?

I just wanted to get peoples impressions on whether the modelling functionality is beginning to compete with C4D's modelling functionalilty.
3. ## h16.5 Houdini Modeling Drama

Hi! First post here. Am transitioning from C4D to Houdini and I figured its easier for me to start with modeling. The challenge am facing right now is with the transform tool. It works great in primitive mode but in edge and point, it does not align with world position at all. As such, using the edit node has become a pita! Any help is much appreciated, thanks!
4. ## workflow Houdini whitewater particles to c4d?

Hi there! I would like to render my water sim and whitewater in c4d to integrate it with an animated scene. I got two questions. 1. I was wondering what a good workflow is to render the simulation out over to c4d, are alembics still the best way to do this or is houdini engine faster or are there other ways? my 7 million points seem to be very very heavy for c4d in alembic... 2. How do I render out the whitewater correctly in c4d (octane render) does this need to be GEO or particles for rendering? and also how do I get that nice lifespan on it too. Thank you for taking the time to help me out! Cheers!
5. ## Alembic output to C4D flashes random squares in geometry?

Getting random flashes of rectangle geometry after rendering Alembic sequence to disk from Houdini 16.5, see below: Would it help to share all of my FLIP, fluid particle, static object node attributes or is this a familiar problem people have run into before?

7. ## Smoke Solver Collision on Type

Need a bit of help on a problem for a client, ( on an NDA as well ). Basically, I have a pipeline that shoots to Octane in C4D for the VDB usage and the smoke sim I made is fine and they are head over heels for it but the type (in the smoke) in the first frame is too pixelated for them and not high res enough. I've been trying to find the right amount of density and type space to keep the titles as sharp as possible but when I put them into C4D and play around about it's still exported in Alpha somewhat pixelated. Any ideas? I have a sample hip of the pig had at a reasonably replicated density to the pig but I need it to be more stoic. Smoke_collide_pig.hip
8. ## Problem in using houdini engine at C4d

Hi guys, I've just done this tutorial [ https://www.sidefx.com/tutorials/creating-a-procedural-snowflake/ ] and I wanted to render it on cinema 4d but I couldn't T_T I made it as Houdini digital asset and threw it to c4d, but there was nothing I could see. and when even I send just cube, It worked, but file in that tutorial couldn't be read on c4d houdini engine.... What should I do !?!? Thank you for read.
9. ## subframe cache workflow for motion blur on non-constant topology

Hello all, I'm trying to get Motion blur from a flip fluid sim that I Export from houdini and I Import in Cinema 4d. After researching I came to the conclusion that I could probably achieve that with the subframe cache workflow. Can someone please clarify this workflow to me ? thanx, Ioannis.

11. ## C4D-Style Effector

Just throwing this one out there. I keep seeing people looking for easy ways to control attributes, a lot of whom reference C4D's effectors. So I made one. It's come in handy a few times already so I thought I'd package it up nicely and upload it. Let me know if you find it useful, find some bugs, or have any questions MT_PlainEffector.hdalc
12. ## Obj Import from C4D to Houdini

Hello, i'm new here so i have a simple one for you I've only been working in Houdini for the last year, and i never imported geometry from C4d into Houdini. I was wondering how do i prepare the geometry from C4d. I don't need to modify it, i just need it as a poly or a poly mesh... Thanks, and i'm glad to have found this place, you are all great and Houdini is just the greatest and the most fun tool to work with.

15. ## Mixamo Abc import via c4d

Hi, I got an animation from mixamo.com in fbx... used c4d to export out an abc - this file opens fine back in c4d. But doesn't show any geometry inside houdini. Is there something I am missing/ doing something wrong? If this won't work does anyone know a convenient way to get mixamo animation inside houdini? Thanks d.
16. ## Read alembic color tag in Octane for C4D?

Sup guys, anybody knows how to read houdini color attributes in octane for c4d? I tried exporting as alembic, that gave me a vertex color tag wich I plug into a vertex map on a material, but isn't working, the native c4d render seems to load it, any tips on this? Thanks!
17. ## Polygon Soup RBD Texturing

Hello, I'm doing a simulation where a car drives through a brick wall. The scene will eventually be imported via alembic into C4D for texturing and rendering so here is where I'm getting stuck: I imported the car as an obj, cleaned it, converted it to polysoup, made a low res proxy (using the ray sop) for simulation, and then after I get the sim the way I want I export the point data of the sim and then use transform pieces and connect the high resolution car. However, I'm not sure how to export the car with selection tags for texturing individual parts of the geo in C4D. I'm using alembic to export from Houdini to C4D. It seems like once I convert the car to regular polygon mesh, all the individual pieces of the car fall apart in the sim. I would use an HDA and the C4D Houdini Engine but we are on R16 at work and will not have R17 available to us for this project. Is there a way to save out texture tags in the polygon soup so that when I save the alembic file they are baked in? Any ideas are welcome! sim_example_js_v01.hipnc
18. ## Creative, expert in motion design, After Effects, C4D? For Moment Factory!

Got a DA DNA? Join Moment Factory, THE multimedia leader! julie@polyglotgroup.eu https://goo.gl/dOm7t4

Hi! I'm using houdini engine with cinema 4D. I've got several C4D projects with a hda that read files. When I just click on render, my scene is rendered perfect, but when I added my project to render queue, C4D alerts me that it doesn't found my digital asset and I need to render several projects during the night and I cannot be all the time in front of the computer waiting until one project finished render to click and render the other project. Does anyone knows if there is a way to solve this?? Thanks!!
20. ## C4D Alembic To Houdini

Hey all, I exported out an alembic scene from C4D, imported into Houdini, made the proper scale adjustments and everything looks as it should. However, when I go to render in Mantra, I select the imported camera in my alembic scene and the preview is completely black. When I add a Houdini camera and render the scene looks as if it should but the alembic camera will not show up in the render. Any ideas? Thanks!
21. ## Alembic import & scaling

Hello guys. I'm really digging Houdini and have been digging deep into training all over about it. It's a really steep learning curve but I'm seeing some of the rewards. I've been playing with Alembic import a lot as I'm used to Cinema 4D, and I find I can create things much faster there. I know the simulations are top notch in Houdini though so my pipeline ends up with me animating in C4D then sending it out. Importing has been the problem I've been running into. Right now I'm trying to scale with alembic node down. I read on a forum somewhere that I could plug a Null node up to the alembic archive and scale the whole thing down that way, but even with a basic cube in Houdini hooked up to a Null I'm getting no visual indication that any sort of scale is happening. I've clicked on just about everything I can think of in the Null settings. I can edit the transforms with the actual shapes themselves but I have a lot of shapes, and I'd like to take care of them in one go. I have a whole slew of other questions that just keep coming up that none of my training seems to cover, and I'm just trying to fill in the blanks here. The program is quite powerful, but so unwieldy at times.
22. ## Spline (curve) export possible?

Hello all, I've done some googling, read the supported geometry file formats page and etc., but thought I'd swing by here to see if you guys knew the best thing to do or if this is even possible. My big picture goal is to get a (complicated) spline from C4D to Houdini and back again. Right now I'm trying to get any spline (curve) from Houdini to C4D (or even to another program and then to C4D). Am I missing something obvious? Thanks for the aid. ~Grey
