Procedural rock generator

Recommended Posts

Hi!

This is my first post here, hopefully I'm posting in the right section. :)

I recently released a procedural rock generator asset for Houdini. It can generate various types of rocks by using geometric or volumetric displacement, perform remeshing and polygon reduction, create UV coordinates and also apply a procedural texture which can be baked to a file.

I hope to add more features later on. I'm sure most of you here can create this sort of asset easily but maybe it's still useful for some of you, I've spent quite a lot of time on creating it.

If you have any comments (e.g. if the price is fair or not) or features you'd like me to add, let me know. :)

Hey,

 

looks like a nice asset, I don't need it, but here are a couple suggestions from what I've seen on the pictures:

_post a pic with many of them, well arranged, and nicely rendered (might help to sell ;)

_the crystals end seems to be flat, wouldn't it be better to have the end with a large bevel ? sharp.

Hi 6ril,

Thanks a lot for your suggestions!

I'll add another screenshot and also add a crystal type which is more pointy. :)

Hi,

I've just released version 2 of my Rock Generator asset. :)
Major new features include a new type of displacement to generate cracks, greatly improved UV generation for arbitrary meshes and a new material.
You can see more info at http://techie.se/?p=gallery&type=houdini_assets&item_nr=1 and download it from https://www.orbolt.com/asset/Techie::rock_generator::2.0.

Here's an example rock:

And here's the same rock with fully procedural UVs:

Kind regards,
Techie
