  1. Hello, I have textured a model in Mari. Fiew examples added as attachment. Mari has option to mimic different shaders (You just select shader like arnold or vray or unreal). I achieved ths texture when unreal shader was selected in Mari. 1. Is there a option to copy shader settings from mari to houdini? 2. What shader material i need to use to get unreal material? 3. Do i need specific plugin for that? What Houdini shader tutorials do you recommend? Can you recommend some one who knows very well how to do custom shaders in houdini?
  2. 3D Artist- Moment Factory - Montreal

    Are you crazy about textures, shapes and colours and constantly looking for new inspiring creation challenges? Are you passionate about 3D? Do you consider yourself great technically and creative? Do you like playing around a variety of software to get your aesthetic and realism always higher? Do you sometimes dream of joining a multidisciplinary team of pioneers based in Montreal and feel you’d thrive amazingly in international ambitious multimedia experience projects? Here is our content reel for you to be inspired: https://vimeo.com/178357432 Moment Factory is looking for creative and expert 3D Artists in different aspects of the 3D pipeline with special interest for modeling, texturing, environment and FX. Our tools are Maya and Houdini. Please note: we are not looking at character animators or any other kind of specialist 3D animators but our 3D artists also animate objects and abstract images and, therefore, a knowledge of animation is a requirement for this role. Send me your CV/linkedIn profile and portfolio/Demo reel at julietb@momentfactory.com We offer to sponsor the working visa for non-residents in Canada. Some rules apply. Note: advanced level of English is necessary and only artists with relevant portfolio will be contacted.
  3. So I used the Triplanar Projection vop to give some geometry a diffuse texture. It was really easy, and I am happy with the results. However, now I want to add displacement to the same object with a displacement map which matches my diffuse texture. Since the triplanar projection vop only outputs color, how can I supply my shader the outN and doffset values that the Displace Texture vop supplies?
  4. I have a distruction scene where i have cached the sim but i am between of adding texture on the geomtry but i am not sure how to add texture after caching the sim?
  5. Hey there! Before I begin to describe my issue, please keep in mind that I am a beginner at 3D modelling and am still learning. The problem I am encountering is that I have installed the Quixel Colors tool to texture my model in Quixel. The problem is that once I try to render the material map, I get the following error in the Houdini Console: Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:\Users\Scott\Desktop\Quixel SUITE 2.0\quixelcolors\lib\QuixelController.py", line 129, in <lambda> File "C:\Users\Scott\Desktop\Quixel SUITE 2.0\quixelcolors\lib\QuixelController.py", line 149, in openDDO File "C:\Users\Scott\Desktop\Quixel SUITE 2.0\quixelcolors\lib\QuixelController.py", line 127, in <lambda> File "C:\Users\Scott\Desktop\Quixel SUITE 2.0\quixelcolors\lib\houUtils.py", line 148, in bake File "C:/PROGRA~1/SIDEEF~1/HOUDIN~1.523/houdini/python2.7libs\houpythonportion.py", line 341, in setParms raise hou.OperationFailed("Invalid parameter name: " + parm_name) hou.OperationFailed: The attempted operation failed. Invalid parameter name: vm_renderengine I am not sure that I can identify the problem and hope that someone can help me with this! Thank you in advance for your efforts.
  6. 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
