  1. Here is the hip. FadeforDebug.hipnc
  2. Hey there. Thanks for the reply. The method I have been using is to use an tribute vop to bind the p attribute and load it later. Is using a point deform a better method? I will give it a try I'm just wondering if the method I'm using is incorrect.
  3. Hi! I am a student using Houdini for my short film. I have a scene where my character disintegrates. I have a voronoi fracture with an animated and deforming mesh but when the character does larger movements, what seems to be the inside vertices come crashing through the surface outside pieces. Not sure what's happening here. Really sorry for the crappy quality images and all sorts I have to upload this all on my phone as my campus has been having internet issues. Thanks in advance. I would like to upload the hipfile but I can't include my alembic files because of the mentioned internet restriction. If it is necessary I can get the hip onto my phone to send.
  4. @ParticleSkull Thanks a bunch Alvaro! I will look into in more tomorrow morning but I opened the file and it was working perfectly! Exactly the effect I was looking for. Thanks for the detailed response It is extremely helpful. Really excited to learn more about the software and join the community. Thanks again!
  5. Hi Guys. I have been learning houdini over the past week so I really am new to this, I don't have a solid background in a programming way of thinking but I do enjoy technical challenges so bare with me. I have been working on a scene where over time some I want some pieces of a fractured object to be activated in the dops network by selection of a group (I got this part working) For the next part of this I want the pieces that are now active to start scaling down until their scale is 0. I am currently struggling to get my if statement to run multiple times. It runs only once when the condition is met but I cannot get it to loop for each frame. If anyone could please help here or point me to another forum post I don't mind. Thanks! I have linked the hip file and labeled the node I'm having issues with as "Problem". Plant Debris scale.hipnc
