  1. Peeling Effect Houdini 16

    Hey all, Im trying to get a peeling effect on an arm for a shot I was asked to work on at school. I looked all around and found some different techniques to use but when set up completely nothing works, if anyone has any idea if some attributes changed in H16 or can look through the Hip and tell me what I'm doing wrong that would be fantastic. shot_48_02.hipnc
  2. dr strange time slices effect

    hi all so heres one for you - we all love the kaleidoscopic mirror dimension.. and the cool portals and wotnot in Dr strange... BUT can anyone suggest any ideas for how to tackle this really cool but very quick effect in houdini? At 28 seconds we see Kaecilius sort of reverse backwards into various slices as he does so.. I think its a really cool effect and one i would like to try suss out for a cg character. My thoughts are to bring alembic cg dude in, run him through a vdb and back to polys, then use a copy sop and a grid to create slices in the mesh... much like this cool tut... but how do i get that frame offset effect where you can see the slices are running at different frame times ? dunno if i'm explaining it well but does anyone have any ideas? Its something i'd love to crack! ta Ant

  5. A to B Effect using RBD

    Hi Guy, I am working on a project, it is a fractured wooden logo that I need to explode the pieces and then get them back together which turns to another logo. So, the second logo has to be created from the pieces of first logo. What would be the best way to do such a effect?
  6. Hi there, There was an effect i'm interested to. And I try so hard to simulation it, But I'm feel so confuse about that. In the commercial video , around 6s-8s , there are pieces rocks on the ground and roll or stick together to be a shape of phone. I try to do the same effect in houdini , I shattered an object then do a rigid body and let it collapse on the ground , then cache the result and reverse it. But, It look like time reverse but not like what I was think about. I've researched lots of keywords but still can't work , maybe someone can give me some tips about this.

  9. Particle effect help

    Hello magicians, I'm stuck in a R&D for a client, been trying to do a particle behavior for 5 days without success. Heres a video gif of the latest client ref: http://i.imgur.com/dvtTkL1.gifv Also attached is some early image references the client sent but I would like to focus on the gif one. Here is a gif with some of my RDs, I tried advecting particles from pyro, doing a pop network with curve forces and some more stuff, the behavior the client wants is some sort of flock/swarm like a monster that chase a person. http://i.imgur.com/Bs9kFbK.gifv Thanks in advance Cheers!
  10. limit to bounding box

    Hey peeps, I'm new to houdini and trying to create a fur effect. I'm following the video on the SideFX page, but I ran into a problem that's probably very simple, but problematic for a beginner: when I select limit to bounding box, the box isn't there. Now I don't know if it's just not visible and I need to zoom it on it (though I tried selecting the move tool to see if it would become visible) or if it's just not there. I imported a 3D model from maya if that's an important factor. Thanks in advance!

  14. particle morphing

    Hi guys, I new in Fx i do lighting in houdini now i am learning.I have stucked somewhere, for that need your help. i have infinite pattern design of particle dots. . . . . . . . # . # . # . # . # . # . . . . . . . . # . # . # . # . # . # . . . . . . . . i am generating this pattern from texture. particles from texture. those are static particles not emitting or moving, now i want to emit particles from dot and those dots will create another design ( . > # ). and dots will disappear. here comes problem, how to tell particles to go where and generate which design. as u can see above. each dot will emit particles and will go to three sides and generates the design. any suggestion?
  15. Houdini 15 Rain Effect

    Hello, First post and relatively new to Houdini. Im looking to produce a rain effect. I figure the best way is to use a particle emitter from a grid. Basically for the shot I am doing, there is a car driving straight on a road and I need some rain to hit the front of the car and the windscreen. The rain needs to collide with the car and I am also looking to produce the streaking effect as the rain slides along the car. My main question is how to emit less particles, randomly across the object its emitting from. Also, how do you make the particles tiny (raindrop size) rather than coming down in one giant blob. I've been looking for some tutorials for a few days now and I have found nothing. Any help appreciated, thankyou Charlie
  16. Lava cooling problem

    Hi guys, I was trying to do some Rnd with the Lava shelf tool and used the Cooling and Heating tools but I can't get them to work properly or at least how I thought it would work. I created 2 boxes (one for each) and it's cooling/heating when the fluid gets to the box but keeps on going after that as it had no effect. Looks like it works with the heating one but with the other it works just when the fluid hits the surface and then loses the attributes or whatever.. It should work with the volume, not just surface, and get even cooler, no? Well I think you will understand watching the video and the hip file. Thanks in advance! lava_coolingProblem.mov Lava_test01.hipnc
  17. I am trying to imitate the pyro effect made by Mannoraoth in this Blizzard cinematic. I am getting nowhere figuring this out by myself. I got the color scheme down in the shader but past that, i do not know where to go. I am not sure if i should use a pyro fx shelf tab flames, explosion or fireball. If you know of a better way, please tell me. i am willing to learn and listen to the communities knowledge base. I am going to use it for a game i am working on. Please help. timecode: 2:15-2:21 PS: I am working in Houdini 15

  20. Hello, CONTEXT I have a scene in which a character is painting a floor. The paint is transferred to the floor as points and converted into a VDB and then geometry (to fit the style of the film). Here's a video of the scene I'm busy with: QUESTION It would be nice to get some secondary splashes when the character slams down the brush (and randomly when he paints on the floor). My initial thought was to source the brush geometry, and give it a pop collision detect (for the floor). Then replicate the points with an initial velocity, mesh them and presto. A couple of problems though: 1. I want the particles to emit only now and them (randomly essentially) and at high impact times. 2. I would like to set the directions of velocity to match the animation. 3. With the pop replicate the shape of the splashes wouldn't look ideal The scene and its alembics are a bit large for the post :/ Thanks

  22. Flip Fluid Cache

    Hi guyz, I'm currently working on a little fluid explosion type effect. For that I cached out my simulation, and I would like to now cache out the geometry that gets generated, however everytime I start my caching (using rop outputdriver), it only caches a few frames until it crashes. It seems like it is running out of memory, but I'm working on a machine with 32gb ram, and it always caches a few frames until it crashes. Do you know if there's a way around this? Thanks in advance Sustaxata
