anthonymcgrath posted a topic in EffectsHi all i'm fairly new to houdini and still learning the ropes somewhat. I hope you can help me a little bit with this issue here? I have a simulation of some long hair attached to a character (inspired by a fantastic Method Studios video.. so sue me hehe!) anyway i wanted to be able to convert the nurbs curves that are created to some geometry - simply cylinders or a tapered tube perhaps then export out that geometry for rendering in maya perhaps. is there a way to do this? I cant seem to dive into the fur network and add any kind of 'physical' polygon geometry that i can export. So my next thought was create a new network and bring in the geometry to that and convert it or perhaps use a copy node and deform a tube down the curves, but again i cant seem to suss that one out :/ does anyone have any ideas or suggestions for me please? thanks anthony
Hello Does anyone know a way I could get the normal data to 'smooth' vdbs ? I'm trying to remesh geometry (polytovdb>smooth>convert vdb), but I always seem to get these hard edges I might be overlooking something or it's something complicated. In the following screenshot (which would be a more complicated mesh, of course) 1) is my base geo with smooth normals 2) is my vdb and 3) is the vdb i woul like to have. I can't always smooth incoming geo, unfortunately. Thanks! bernie
