  6. Fedora vs. Centos

    FYI I bought another SSD and try Fedora and find good for now, but I think to test also a deb based soon. Matteo
  7. Fedora vs. Centos

    Hi there, I read a lot a discussion, but I didn't found a good answer for my doubt. In the past I used CentOS (but a lot of setting and "to do") for a shot time and Kubuntu, but I want pass to rpm distro, for that reason I started to evaluate Fedora respect CentOS. Someone use it? (Fedora) what do you think? thanks for your help and have a nice day Matteo
  8. Best Linux Distribution for Houdini ?

    the answer is inside you Deb based and KDE Desktop Enviroment by the way I used Fedora (at home) in this time and I found good, but I use/used Linux Mint/Kubuntu. For my experience Kubuntu is a good solution and Mint is more user friendly, there aren't a "best solution for" there are only the best solution for you because more in Linux is "how you feeling with it". Some my friend love Arch and some hate it, some love Linux Mint and some love POP_os... etc...etc... Remember if you love a KDE like Desktop Enviroment is only the addons and you can install all DE on all distro of linux (for example I have Fedora Gnome, but I install by terminal KDE without problem). Have a good day Matteo

  10. Fedora vs. Centos

    thanks for your information I try in January
  11. Fedora vs. Centos

    Ok, thanks... so no Fedora? in the meantime I found some one install DaVinci on deb distro. https://www.linuxuprising.com/2018/06/how-to-install-davinci-resolve-15-in.html So if it's work I can moved also on DEB distro like mint or kubuntu? thanks Matteo
  12. Fedora vs. Centos

    Ok, Thanks. No Autodesk, the reason is DaVinci. I read it works on rpm and not on deb (or I'm wrong?). Essentially I want use Blender, Houdini and DaVinci and I'm looking for a good distro for that.
  13. Any way to get the cmiVFX L-System tutorials?

    https://www.sidefx.com/tutorials/bonus-lesson-l-systems/ do you know/see that?
  14. New Color Schemes

    thanks for share it, I try soon. Matteo
  15. Vellum Custom forces

    do you tried to add it inside the DOP?
  16. it would seems he "drawing" only the line, but I think there are more works under the hood in the digital asset. For do that you can study how to replicate/duplicate the branch on the trunk and then how to add leaves and scale/rotate/position it random. I created something of similar in the past. Mat

  18. Pop grains wokflow question

    good to know the other thread.... ps. about the tools for now no, I started to develop something but I have a lot of works on more aspect and so no more time for it.
  19. Exploding vellum grains

    For constraint you can use an attribute cop between the vellum grain sop and constraint sop and setting inside one color with turbolance or voronio and export (bind) the constraint attribute. Then you can load it in the vellum constraint sop. If I remember well you can find one example files inside the folder "help" in Houdini director on your system (e.g. in Windows under the program files->sidefx->etc...etc....).
  20. Pop grains wokflow question

    I know... so you can update your workstation or renderfarm (lol, I'm joke).... seriously you can push how you can and then you can copy some geometry by points and mesh it with vdb. Mat
  21. Mudbox now Dead

    In this time I'm looking around for another software I can use with Houdini and on sculpt I see some good combination with Blender... maybe a lot of people moved or on ZBrush, 3DCoat or Blender...
  22. Houdini 19 Wishlist

    some good alternative you can associate like external editor https://code.visualstudio.com https://www.sublimetext.com https://atom.io https://notepad-plus-plus.org
  23. Exploding vellum grains

    do you try to use a custom constraint with Vop and color for the clumps?
  24. Pop grains wokflow question

    what do you mean with "best point interpolation" ? The only way I found with pop grains is use not use a upres. it's good tool, but in more cases doesn't works correctly or create some flickering part so I prefer to up the quality of my source (= particles sep) and don't use upres/point replicator tools. Alternative you can use the grains with vellum because is more fasted respect the pop grains. my 2 cents Matteo
  25. Houdini 19 Wishlist

    I tried/used that for 1 week and I found very well also, if I remmeber well, you can use a special button and setting inside some different tools for each software you used (it's like a circular menù in Houdini, but you can use one for Houdini, one for Maya, for e.g., or others and in all cases it's different). Price is high also because you should buy the pad so price not less, but is very good product. https://www.3dconnexion.co.uk/nc/products/cadmouse-product-line.html On Atohotkey scripts good to knoe I use it for fix alwayse on top some application/floating windows in Win10.
