Dancing weirdness animation I did

Recommended Posts

Hey chaps thought I'd say thanks for all the help and share a little video I made with all the tricks i learnt. 

Dancing animation weirdness

Yep.. clearly inspired by the genius at Method Studios hehe :)

 

In total 2 weeks from nothing to something.. there's things I could do differently but I set myself a week to play/learn and a week to render and comp. Not too bad considering I barely had any idea of how to use houdini a couple weeks back heh! :)

they're on various threads i've frequented on the forums - most of the tricks are simple tricks ppl have discussed on here - nothing yer cant search for :D  i'll chuck a couple up though next week :)

just thought i'd share a couple of scene files (attached hopefully) on here as asked :)

i've included a clip of the alembic character i was using so you can take it, twiddle, play about and show off your results with him too.  I'd love to see what cool tricks can be done :)

as i say the tricks really aren't anything special, and there's probably a multitude of better ways to do it but as i say i'm still quite new and fiddling with it.  Most of the stuff i'm doing is via youtube tutorials, perusing sidefx & odforce and its just something i'm trying to keep on top of week to week and develop with it.

thanks i since figured out how to do these sort of effects in a tighter more optimised way but at the same time i like the simple twitchyness some of those effects had :)

Hi Anthony

I was going to have a play using VDB's, still using trail SOP and scatter but I thought it might be easier to manage the states with VDB's.  I am trying to nail down the fluid effects in the Method Studios video, that is how I found the link.  I would love to come up with some new effects along the way however so all of these workflows are useful.
