  1. I hope you are saying this tongue in cheek. so what tools are made to make life easier? so what it brings in new blood because of those tools. but if your only argument to not have such tools is to keep Houdini "complex" and keep the uninitiated away then close Houdini off to new users r at least until they pass muster by passing a complex VEX quiz. a regressive way of thinking.
  2. Houdini Modeling Drama

    Yes, Fyastrata, I was having a hard time wrapping my head around some aspects of hard surface modeling in Houdini, what would take me 10 minutes in Houdini takes 2 in C4D. Houdini VFX, especially particles, blows C4D out of the water it much quicker and easier to get results, for that I will stay with Houdini but for hardsurface modeling I am returning to C4D.
  3. yes I saw those and some look pretty good. I guess I am too old school modeling and I see some nasty mesh and don't care for booles
  4. the ability to "easily" make changes to a model is one of the things I like about Houdini, where in C4D, unless you make endless saves at certain points or you undo as far back but then you lose what you've done. yes as I mention in my post, it does take a more technical approach (planning out your model) than with C4D
  5. I switched from C4D about 5 months ago. there are still some modeling tools (knife tool for one) which C4D kicks Houdini butt and I wish Houdini had the poly pen tool. for me, it seems to take a bit more planning to model something in Houdini while with C4D you could almost wing it. and then there is MoGraph . . . need I as more. I do believe Houdini has seen the light is starting to make inroads into modeling instead of resting on their laurels of VFX
  6. Houdini Modeling Drama

    I just came to Houdini from C4D. I believe if you hit the M key it will toggle the alignment of the tool
  7. Houdini 17 Wishlist

    I would like to see a camera calibrator like in Cinema4D, to more easily integrate 3D objects into a photo
  8. Houdini 17 Wishlist

    I have only been using Houdini about 4 months now and am still trying to wrap my head around it but is starting to come together . . . . slowly. I like the idea of a mograph tool, it is intriguing.
  9. Procedural Shells

    hey thanks for update. I picked it up/purchased so I can see how it is done.
  10. Houdini 17 Wishlist

    I would like to see some Mograph type tools. I know Rohan Dalvi created some, still it would be nice to have them native inside Houdini
  11. how do you move edges so they line up evenly

    thank you very much for the tips on this, very much appreciated.
  12. after 3 months I am still trying to learn the ropes of Houdini. how do you move the two edges up to red line and get them horizontal? in C4D it was ctrl drag with move tool. also the right edge of the second polygon would go straight up not at angle.
  13. Spyrogif

    man, that is some amazing stuff.
  14. Using Bend in Houdini

    I am somewhat new to Houdini too coming from Cinema 4D. I've playing around with Houdini for about two months and I do suggest Rohan Dalvi's tutorial series. One can learn much from them. start with the basics then learn and expand from those.
  15. New showreel :)

    WOW, this is some excellent work.
  16. I am getting this artifact when I apply a polycap, disable polycap and it goes away. I am following a hardsurface modeling tutorial by Rohan Dalvi. engine redo.hiplc
  17. I am getting an artifact when applying a polycap

    Thank you Jesper! Fuse took care of it, I appreciate the help.
  18. let me invest in some and you could not even buy a loaf of bread with a wheelbarrow full of cryptos.
  19. there is a class from Udemy about learning Python. right now it is on sale for $15. https://www.udemy.com/complete-python-bootcamp/ [www.udemy.com] so, would this help to learn Python to be used in Houdini?
  20. My Various Game Art

    nicely done. in my twisted mind in a downtown city environment the "on" in button would be scratched nearly invisible :-)
  21. Procedural Shells

    oh well done on the start. I am looking forward to this.
  22. Tree and Foliage Tools

    if you do a seashell tutorial, would you do one on the basic clam shell ? I have a project I'd like to do with it.
  23. ah i have 293. I had a heck of a time getting my license installed, would not connect to license server etc. lotsa email help from support.
