  1. making color "stick to moving particles ...

    Thank Marty, that worked. Brian S.
  2. Hi, I'm trying to replicate the way you can set color for a particle's "initial state" in a Maya particle system. I've looked through docs, tuts, etc, and have not been able to get this to work: Here's what I got so far: ---------------------------- I've scattered points over some terrain Geo, used a point Vop to create noise based color for the Cd attribute on the points, then used the points as the initial geometry in the popObject. The idea is to have textured "dust" blow over the Geo (I'm driving the pop animation with a Pyro sim). The animation works well, but I can't figure out how to transfer the Cd attribute of the scattered points to the particles. I played with creating the color with a PopVop in the Dop network, but the color is assigned by position so the particles animate but the color does not. I've attached my test scene. I'd appreciate any clues; thanks in advance bcs_partDustTest_v01.zip
  3. Hi, could someone show an example of the use of the "hou.Geometry.boundingBox()" class? I want to query the of bbox objects from the Python Shell. I've written scripts in maya-mel, and I'm getting my head around python in Houdini. Any syntax examples would be appreciated Brian Samuels
  4. Midi controller to CHOP

    So glad i found this thread I'm experimenting with using a little midi pad controller (akai LPD8) to "performance capture" animation timing tracks..... Thanks to you guys I've got it working. Cheers, Brian S.
