Hello guys ! I am trying to apply two materials with different displacements on the same RBD pieces. I use a material on the outside group and another one on the inside group. It works but it create a gap between my two materials (the black holes on the picture). I used a restposition before assigning the material with a materialSOP but it doesn't resolve my problem. Do you have any ideas of how I can fix it ? Thank you a lot !
Hello everyone... I have a problem with an RBD packed object inheriting velocity. In the file, I have the attribute active being set by another object, but the velocity doesn't kick in at all. The velocity works if I remove the point wrangle setting active to 0 and remove the sop solver. If I try a pop vop or a geo vop, there's some weird velocity behavior that happens. If I tick on override attribute, the velocity takes off big time and doesn't appear that gravity takes hold. All I'm looking for is initial velocity once the pieces become active. I saw a few threads on the side fx forums and this forum, but nothing I saw seems to be working. Any thoughts? test_active_velocity.hipnc
In many threads I've read here as well as in recent webinars it is recommended to use the Deforming Object shelf tool when setting up your DOP network in a FLIP sim. And then always turn off 'Use Deforming Geometry' However in a simple FLIP sim I have with falling objects into a FLIP tank RBD Object is the only option that seems to work. If I use Deforming Object I can't get the gravity force to take effect. Can anyone tell me in a nutshell what the advantage of Deforming over RBD Object shelf tool is, and how I might enable the gravity force when applying Deforming Object to any geometry?
Hi everyone, I’m pretty new to Houdini, so please bear with me. I want to try making a little boat passing through a body of water. Now I know how to use the boat to affect the water and create the wake, but I also want the boat to be affected by the water: I’d like for the boat to rock with the water’s waves. Is it even possible for an RBD object to be affected by a flip simulation and if so how does it work? Or would I have to animate it myself? I’d be grateful for any help you can give me Thanks in advance! Cheers
