  1. I think the real answe to that question is because we're all a bunch of slackers and need to be poked to make it happen! Consider me sufficiently poked, I'll get it up today.
  2. rss feed for odforce.net

    Hey. We have added an overall rss feed, but the activity streams: https://forums.odforce.net/discover/ Do have rss feeds attached.
  3. Effects Challenges

    I know that this is something that everyone would want to see more of here, so here's your chance to throw your ideas into the proverbial hat. What would you like to do? Ideas can range from the silly (check the challenge archive), to the insanely houdini specific, to the general fx style challenge (things blowing up etc.). Thanks M
  4. Forum upgrades!

    Hey all There seems to be an uptick of spammy sales threads happening these days. Part of it might be that the forum software is fairly out of date. Because of that, we'll be updating the forum at some point in the next few weeks. Just a heads up that it might be down for a short time while we backup and run the update. Also while we're here, we're always looking for more mods to help manage the content on the forum. If you think managing a community sounds like a fun thing, then please let me know and we can discuss. Thanks M

  11. Od Studios: Even more fx and lighting!

    I completely forgot to mention that we're looking for someone already in Vancouver for this one.
  12. Hey! Od Studios is hiring again! We're looking for experienced Houdini artists to help out in fx and lighting starting in January (or immediately for the right artist). Some requirements: Houdini experience, naturally. We're working remotely and from in the office, depending on the day. Both options are open to you! Exciting things: Lots of crowd work Deepfakes face replacements Solaris! Redshift Let's go! Mail us: info@theodstudios.com Thanks! M
  13. Things move quickly: https://news.itsfoss.com/rocky-linux-announcement/ I loll'ed at this:
  14. Yeah I scoured the net some more after that post. I'm with symek, this is just bad news all round. Anyone who moves to Oracle will likely regret that decision and/or get what they deserve depending on how naive they are going in . I guess the real question is what will Autodesk do, the reason why most vfx studios are on Cent/RHEL is because that's pretty much the only distro AD supports. https://centos.rip/
  15. If? Aren't most people using CentOS in a production environment? Even if it's just a webserver, having Cent behave like Fedora doesn't sound like a good thing. Actually, this is on Redhat's page: I wonder what's going to happen to Fedora then? ugh.
  16. what do you eat to be a vfxtd?

    Intermittent fasting for me. No crashing energy levels.
  17. Hey! Od Studios is hiring a senior lighter and a senior effects artist for a 2 month contract. Must be a Vancouver resident for this one though. Some requirements: Houdini experience, naturally. 5+ years experience preferred, but not necessarily required. We're working remotely, so you must have a machine at home that can access the internet! Mail us: info@theodstudios.com Thanks! M
  18. Delete Post

    For this kind of request it's best to report the post in question and one of the mods will take care of it. The report post is on the top right of the post itself. Thanks M
  19. Od Studios: Senior FX Artist

    Hey all Od Studios is looking for a senior fx artist for a 6 week contract. Remote work is possible. IM me here on od|force if you're interested and I'll provide more details! Thanks M
  20. Hey Has anyone messed about with the ambient vs reference temp in the new sparse pyro solver? My intuition tells me that if the temperature of the smoke falls below the ambient temperature, then in theory the buoyancy direction should reverse and the smoke should sink. This doesn't seem to be happening though, as the fluid cools it stops moving and hangs in space, whereas I want it to start moving in the direction of gravity. ie. hot smoke rises, cool smoke falls. The falling part is eluding me right now. M
  21. Sparse pyro solver temperature and buoyancy

    Yeah it's definitely a bit esoteric and not simpler, I've always wondered why they don't expose the ambient temperature parm. Leaving the expression in there and messing with the ambient temperature does some pretty weird things so deleting the expression seems like the way to go for this project. Thanks! M
  22. Sparse pyro solver temperature and buoyancy

    Yeah I want 0 temps to go down. I normally mess with the real ambient temp in the gasBuoyancy but I was lured into thinking the parm called 'Ambient Temp' would do what it said :D. I see the expression in there, perhaps it's not behaving as I think it should. I'll mess with it a little, thanks! M
  23. I can try reset your password and send you a temp one to see if that shakes things out. Otherwise yeah it might be best to delete the account and you can try again.
  24. I took a look and there's nothing that jumps out as problematic. There are no limitations on your account, no weird ip issues. Let me know how the other browser/device work for you.
