  1. Letterpress

    Hi, here's my first project using Houdini. My goal was to get in touch with Houdini by transforming skin to metallic letters. I wouldn't have been able to realize this effect without your help here on the forum. Thanks a lot! dk
  2. Letterpress Skin

    Hello everybody! Thank you very much for your help. I wouldn't have come so far without your hints. Just want to present you the current state of the project. I'm making very small steps. But at least they are steps forward I think. The next step will be to work myself into ZBrush to create a proper displacement map for the top level. I am learning a lot on that adventure. regards, Denis P.S: By the way should I move the conversation in the WIP Forum from now on or keep on posting here?
  3. Hello Community, ( I hope that's the right thread for this type of questions.) in the course of my second year studies at the Animationsinstitut in Germany I'm going to shoot a short film showing the metamorphose of a man, whose skin turns into printing press letters. Concept and references: My skill set mainly covers Compositing and the basics of Visual Effects. So I thought to use a project with real deadlines to boost my 3D skills. For some time now I gradually familiarize myself with Houdini. Feels like doing some kind of 3D Compositing. Like it so far. Now I definitively could need some help for the technical realization of the concept. Tutorials on the web are great, but don't cover this particular Effect. As can be seen from the images I want to randomly scatter letters across a surface. So far I experimented with displacement maps but I'm not sure if that's the right approach. I was told SOPs are the way to go. Is it possible to randomly instancing geometry so they move close together without overlapping? And if that was the case, would there be a procedural approach to generate the different letters/symbols? Regarding animation: I just want the transition to be animated. So we move from skin (live action) to roughly brushed plumb to the letters. Imagine the brushed plumb gets grooved and reveals the letters underneath. Any ideas and comments are very appreciated. (By the way, I put in my head to finish this project somehow by the end of July.) Thank you very much for your attention and interest. Regards, dk
