  1. Thank you, it did help !
  2. Hello Houdinians First i just want to say how precious is all the help and tutorials that all of you guys have provided, this is very generous of you and your talent! Now that i have used flattery... (lol) I have been using houdini for about 18 months, and i still have a steep learning curve ahead to learn VEX coding and expressions, but i am slowly understanding the basic principles... I need to replicate an ancient building technique, and i need to create some variable size rocks falling from an emitter and filling-up a container or structure, piling up to fill the structure. (about 1000 rocks , between 20cm and 40cm, filling a 4m x 4m x4m box ) I found some tutorials relating to instancing or copy/stamp techniques, but some are from older versions of houdini and i have difficulty achieving this . i manage to obtain a popnet liberating particles to which i instanced a sphere (rock) , but cannot get them as RBD to pile-up correctly. I there an easy way using the shelf tools, or information you could help me find to help me build this rather simple simulation ? thank you for any help, and have a great day! Pierre D.
  3. Animating bulge along path

    Sorry, my mistake... I had posted the question in "general questions" and obtained this answer, which was very instructive. Thanks for your help !
  4. Translate bulge along path

    Thank you Tomas ! It works perfect...You helped my understanding a lot. Pierre DesRoberts
  5. Hello, excuse my noobness, but i am looking for a way to translate a bulge along a curve path to deform a tube. I have a tube and my curve, i add a metaball, to which i add a "follow path" constraint. The metaball moves along the path as i advance the timeline. then comes the time i select the tube , then bulge using the metaball as magnet. i now have control on the bulge, but now the bulge stays static and does not follow the metaball's path anymore. How can i achieve this? For my needs, it would be even better if i could just translate the bulge on one of the curve's axis, instead of having it animated over time. Thanks for any help ! Pierre D
  6. Hello I am want to translate a bulge along a curve path . i have used "follow path" to move the metaball along the curve... but as soon as use the metaball as my "bulge magnet", it wont follow the curve anymore. What am i doing wrong? Any help is welcome! (in fact , it would serve me better to be able to manually control the translate of the bulge along the curve, rather than have it animated on the timeline...) Ps: excuse my english Pierre
