  1. Howdy!

    It's been a long and illustrious carreer. I think this website has been going for ~23 years now. Time flies when you're having fun
  2. Howdy!

    Alex! I'm still here.

    Hey all We're looking to add some senior Houdini artists to our core team! Come join us, we're a small studio, so that means plenty of creative and technical freedom. Lot's of fun projects too! od for life! M
  4. Od Studios: Even more fx and lighting!

    I completely forgot to mention that we're looking for someone already in Vancouver for this one.
  5. 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
  6. Things move quickly: https://news.itsfoss.com/rocky-linux-announcement/ I loll'ed at this:
  7. 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/
  8. 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.
  9. what do you eat to be a vfxtd?

    Intermittent fasting for me. No crashing energy levels.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. Hey When I've seen this before it's a client side issue. Try clearing all your cookies for odforce and see if that helps.
  19. OdForce forum backup

    Well the official answer is no :). But I'm curious as to why you'd want it?
  20. Cannot perform background render...

    you need to save the hipfile
  21. It's been a crazy week for everyone, apologies for the delays.
  22. Impending Server upgrade

    And we're done and everything seems to be in order. Thanks
  23. Hey all Our server will be upgraded sometime tonight, so please don't panic if the site is down for a bit. The maintenance period should be ~1 hour. I'll update this once I know the exact time. Thanks! M
  24. Impending Server upgrade

    Time should be around 12am PST. Apologies to all our non North American visitors, insomniacs and anyone working OT tonight. On the plus side the site should be faster and, uh... well just faster really.
