  1. I've always been fascinated by procedural set modeling, so I figured I'd try my hand at modeling some tropical marine life in Houdini. I'll be posting my progress here! I have started hashing out a few basic types of coral, anemone, etc. Hoping to eventually get this all into a large scene. Anemone motion test: I apologize, but I cannot currently share hip files of these scenes since they may be used in a contract.

  4. Let me start by saying that I am not a smart man... (and thus shouldn't be using Houdini for a living but hey, here I am). I'm trying to render a latlong image from camera for re-use as an HDR -what beyond setting the projection to panoramic is required? Is there any relationship to focal length or is it ignored with a polar render?
  5. Hi, we're looking into hqueue and noticed that hqueue clients don't inherit the environment or the otl paths. i.e. otls stored on ~/houdini14.0/otl are not made available to the client. (I'm having a look at the hqueue docs but can't find anything regarding this. Also manually adding the otl_scan_path variable in the hqueue rop and submitting a job doesn't seem to pass the variable to the client on the farm.) Is there a way to configure hqueue so that clients would launch a specific wrapper? or simply inherit the current environment including otl_scan_path? Thanks for your help L
  6. Hi. With Visual Studio 2015 released with Python Tools... did anyone succeeded to setup Hython Environment for Python development so it would display more than one level deep of help? With this setup I get standard one "." level deep help: Thanks!
  7. Hi Guys ! Here is my zebra all done in version 10. Please do comment so that there is scope for improvement !
  8. Hi guys, I am currently trying to do a cloudscape with Houdini's CloudFX and was hoping that you guys can give me some advice. I am trying to form clouds like this reference image But using following the cloudfx tutorials only gives me spherical clouds as the image below: Here is some hero cloud stillframe renders: So, my question is how do I go about doing those elongated shape clouds? Do I need to model out a similar shape and copy to a template or is playing with the cloud node settings enough. Thanks!
  9. Over the course of my graduation project I looked into how a procedural system could be established that would generate a unique deathmatch map that would require as little need of user input as possible. I researched the structural elements of classic deathmatch maps and applied these to construct organic environments. The procedure goes through several steps to establish rooms and paths. Once all rooms and paths have been established a volumetric approach is used to create the mesh. The uv mapping and and polygonal optimization are also completely automized allowing the user to generate a unique map by only pressing a button. Next to having a tool that generates maps without the need for user input, several features for user control were implemented, this does require some knowledge of how Houdini works. The user can manually adjust paths (adding removing etc.) and sculpt additional cover objects. Once exported the map can be imported directly into UDK and be played against bots.
  10. Greetings How to edit code of environment light? I guess gi_light shader is core of env light [from shelf menu], am I right? Still, environment light has more options than gi_light and seems to behave more accurate. I wanted to see if there's easy way to get angular or cubic projection of environment map. Right now in environment light [and gi_light] there's only sphere projection which is by default. I know there's isixpack utility, but I am not looking for such methods . I was looking for answer for about month, so: geometry light: too noisy, too slow constant shader: too noisy, 0 control about source samples Any tips&tricks?
