    BulletSOP is implementation of Bullet library (bulletphysics.org) inside SideFx Houdini (sidefx.com). It's a plugin for creating incredibly large rigid body simulations on average PC. The Tool is very powerful, flexible and speed is very impressive as well as memory footprint. The plugin is free and without limits! So you can create truly stunning massive simulations. BulletSOP is compiled for Houdini production builds. It includes many example scenes (beginner -> professional) which are probably the best learning resources. Main features: - Bullet RBD Solver - Support for multiple Broadphases, Constraints Solvers - Loading data from previous frame - Geometry decomposition (Tetrahedra, Voxels) - Static/Animation body - Convex Hull - Compound Hull - Deform static Hull - Primitive Hulls - Constraints (auto-generating, spring, 6DoF) - Collisions Groups - Object Forces - Point Radius Forces - Delete Duplicity data - Instancing - Emitting system - Includes many example scenes for studying - Support for Windows(64bit), Linux(64bit) and OSX(64bit) Links: Houdini: www.sidefx.com LinkedIn: www.linkedin....Houdini-4796605 More author's videos: vimeo.com/user3251535 Create freely, simulate quickly and enjoy fully!

    The plan is to post the ggx, disney bsdf implementation plus a big microfacet swiss army knife similar to the compare.brdf in BRDF in the next day or so once I finish up writing the help.

    Wow. Nice to see this topic! The question on first page was about my setup. I did not see this topic before, and I just surprized why nobody noted me about this topic because I am always open to explain any of my techniques. It is just very cool research about several steps displacement for curved surfaces. I did not check current setup of Rayman, but I can suppose that it would be useful to calculate width of each step by original polygon size. Because each step means one access to pointcloud so we want to minimize that. Also I use quaternions instead of matrix because it is vector4 versus vector9 or 16 for matix
