  1. How to resume a Flip simulation

    To anyone having the same problem (when houdini tries to cook again after cached sim). Remeber to disable simulation by clicking small icon on the bottom right corner of the houdini interface. Looks like brain Then Houdini will show you only cached files without simulating anything. Have a good one.

    Hi Vexosaur I was trying to run your scene in Houdini 17 Indie and it shows error as in this screen Any clue why ? I would love to play around with that setup. Ok I got it. File>Import>Houdini Digital Asset and then Install
  3. It worked ! Thank you Dominik !!! Have a great day.
  4. Hi people, I got some problem with color loss in my balls array attached to point box. Everything is working as intended until I transform my array to RBD Object. In my scene I would like to have balls bounce around and collide with everything but I would like to have some materials and distribute them randomly on them as well. Everything is working but color is lost inside Assemble node at the end in Attribute Wrangle node called : add_name_attribute. I have no idea what happens but this node is making additional groups from my balls and in the end there are many groups which I don't need. All balls are turning grey in viewport as well. If you could have a look I would be grateful. ajz3d_randomize_materials2.hipnc
  5. Collision with animated tree

    Thank you for your advice! I will try my best to use your idea even though it looks little daunting I'll post results if I succeed.
  6. Hello, today I am facing very difficult problem, maybe you could help me in this struggle. Scenario looks like this: I received animated tree exported from SpeedTree as an alembic file. Now in Houdini it looks like wind is moving leaves which is perfect. The problem is I would like to collide with the leaves with RBD objects which are bouncing around my scene. I would like to keep my “wind” animation on a tree but make the tree responsive to any objects that may collide with it and make it so the leaves would bend on collision. Is it possible ? If so what would be the way to achieve such effect. Have a nice day and thank you for your input in advance. P.
