  6. Houdini 19 Wishlist

    Haven't seen 18 yet so don't know if the code editor was improved, but if not, this still is my ABSOLUTE NR. 1 wish. if(code_editor_improved != true) { Code editing in Houdini Wrangles is - well - crap. It's a total shame we don't even see command parameter lists when typing since even in value fields typing expressions does it and has autocomplete for paths etc. Even only bringing that ability to the VEX editor would be very helpful. Of course it would also make a lot of sense to have other settings and helpers in there, like auto-closing brackets, more clever cursor positioning, offering existing variables and attributes when typing etc. - the Houdini devs should know ALL about that, they probably spend their life in real code editors... The use of external editors could be improved a lot if a.) we wouldn't have to press ALT+E twice for the external editor and wouldn't have to get to the floating editor first each time and b.) if that connection would be "live" like for instance the Pinegrow Web Editor does it with a little plugin for Code and Atom, where you can type in either the internal or external editor and they update each other in realtime. The current system is too clumsy and the 3rd party implementations also aren't really there (no negativity towards the authors intended at all!). Make it native! Make it goooooooood! } else { All is well. Nothing to see here. :-) } Cheers, Tom

    "Be a tree" Let the breeze blow gently through your leaves. Let the sun nourish and warm you. Give birds and squirrels a home. Drink deep from the ground. And when the storm comes, give it your all. Blender with "The Grove" plugin for the tree, Houdini making it into strands and create pseudo-leaves, Redshift for rendering, Luminar to make it cheesy ;-) And a "dry" version: Cheers, Tom

    "The Book of Tom" All you are is a system of memories Houdini, Redshift. Cheers, Tom

    "Bloom" Revisiting an old design based on differential growth: Houdini, Redshift, Luminar. Cheers, Tom
  11. Differential curve growth

    @jayhem & @btangonan: So I dug out this old file from 2016 and updated it to Houdini 17.5. Download it here: Coral_Growth_2019.hiplc As was said in above post, the rendering wasn't Mantra but Thea Render. Cheers, Tom

    Organics: "Lace" The queen decided that for her 3389th birthday, she would wear nothing but the most intricate laces. Thousands of trained silk worms were worked to exhaustion. But the result was worth it... This one needed to be rendered as Redshift hair instead of cylindrical strands that I use normally, since my 64 GB RAM did not suffice for the conversion... Cheers, Tom

    Organics: "Cocoon" Today he would leave his cocoon forever It had kept him alive and safe for years But it had also defined his boundaries It was a frightful thing to leave them behind... GO! Houdini, Redshift, Luminar 2018 Cheers, Tom

    Organics: "The Grid" The Grid was very, very regular. And very very dead. Humans were very fond of it. Right angles everywhere! Then life intervened. Made things interesting again. Thank you! :-) Cheers, Tom
