  1. Dissolve from texture

    Probably the easiest way would be to try and recreate the marble texture with several noises merged together. You'd have an easier time then isolating the edges -> take the complement of you noise, feed it through a fit - change a bit the range and subtract it to the original noise. That way you avoid making UV's for your meteor, and you can animate the noise for fun effects. As for the dissolving, I think vdb dissolving is the right way to go, this video from entagma illustrate it well:
  2. Add wires dynamically to wire simulation

    I think the entagma guys did something similar, though wires with grains. Maybe have a watch, enjoy looking at code, else yeah, a sop solver with your wire solver would do the trick You hook your wire object into a the first input of a multisolver, and your wire solver into the second input, then you put a dop solver also into the second input. The dop solver will read in the geometry you are handling, and you can at that point create the extra wires just as you would in sop context. Give it a try, see how It goes
  3. Though the SSS in my scene looks much more noisy and kinda blue, It does appear in both cases and on the same spots as in your example. Im at work so cant post my result, ill give it another try once im home.
  4. Hi dominik, I tried rendering your file and It seems to be working the same, whether I render directly or from file :/ I get some light SSS on some of the spheres of each berry

    sweeet, gonna have to break my piggy bank now
  6. Procedural Lake Houses tutorial

    Wicked, I'll be looking forward to It x) Gott nytt år och god fortsättning
  7. Procedural Lake Houses tutorial

    Congratulations on finishing your series!! Any hope of getting a bundle? :>
  8. Procedural Lake Houses tutorial

    Sweet, keep up the good work Yeah, a bundle would be awesome!!
  9. Procedural Lake Houses tutorial

    Cool!! How many parts are there gonna be if I may ask?
  10. You KNOW you're a total novice when...

    When you think you'll be fine with 8gb of ram.
  11. I believe It means that you have typed a python expression in It
  12. Simple Math Problem

    @logix1390 You have to put down an attribute promote, primitive to detail, with promotion method sum to get the real volume. If I understand the help file correctly, the ˝volume˝ of each primitive is calculated based on the pyramid It forms between the face of your primitive to the point defined by the ˝center˝ value you give It. So adding the volume of all these pyramids together will give you the real volume of the object. @konstatin_magnus A grid has no volume, I'm not sure what you are really trying to prove?
  13. Inside a *attribute vop* create a new attribute from your color called scale, and use a fit range to make white = 0.1 and black = 0 (on your original sphere). There are several attributes the copy sop looks for when doing the copying, scale is one of them - you can find a list of them in It's help file.
  14. Where is my rest field?

    on the smoke object tick *add rest field* in the initial tab; and on the solver go into advanced --> rest field --> and enable Rest now try importing rest and rest2 (dual rest fields)
  15. Curl noise question

    Hi Nelson, The amplitude of the Curl is proportional to the gradient of the vector field It is fed (which by default is a perlin noise vector field). The gradient is the derivative of a 3d vector, so in other words the rate of change. If the rate of change is high, you will get high values on the curl. So when your input is a high frequency noise, the noise feature gets very small and very varied, which results in vectors flying all around the place. Hence, a high rate of change. A nice pdf on how It's calculated can be found here http://platforma-kooperativa.org/media/uploads/curl_noise_slides.pdf I hope I was of help, ask if anything doesn't make sense
