  1. Cartoon Waves

    Hey guys, I'm on a working on a film team project that involves 2d cartoon surface water. What I've come up with so far is using a grid and an ocean evaluate to get the base shape and movement and assign two materials using groups and bounding boxes. I want to be able to slow the waves down to slow motion but I'm not really sure how to do that without loosing the size of the waves. 006 has notes and a bunch of previous attempts 007 is the most recent update. 005 is the most recent render. 6 crashed. Any C&C is appreciated SU19_BaseEffects_SurfaceWaterAbove_006.hipnc SU19_BaseEffects_SurfaceWaterAbove_007.hipnc SU19_BaseEffects_SurfaceWaterAbove_005.mp4
  2. File type outputed

    I'm not 100% sure how but I fixed the problem. I started a new Houdini file and remade everything from scratch. After that it sort of just worked. The only thing I can think of is I set up the project directory first. I didn't think it would matter but the first time I didn't set a project folder until after I modeled my pool. Hope this helps if anyone else is having this problem. Set your projects first thing.
  3. File type outputed

    Okay so I'm still pretty new at this. I've been able to make a video by exporting a sequence of pngs but for some reason whenever I've done it since I only export file type files that can't be opened. I don't know what I'm done goofing here. I've tried going through the default directory, a new directory fold and the desktop, and tried exporting as pngs, exrs, and pics but it only ever outputs files. Any help is appreciated
  4. Final Export Error

    Nice to meet you Ben! That's interesting. I love AE and Premiere but what would you suggest I export to open them properly in either? Right now I'm going through all of Peter Quint's tutorials and I'd like to start outputting some rendered files. Thanks a ton Russ
  5. Final Export Error

    Hey all, First post here, literally my first mp4 render. I'm have it finished and rendered in MPlay. But when I try to export I hit this error. I'm running an Apprentice 17.5 My best guess is that it's angry because the licenses is on the D drive and I'm saving to the C but I don't think where I save it should matter. Any help is appreciated
  6. I'm totally new at this and using the Apprentice version. 17.5.173 I'm trying to render my first animation and I have it finished in MPlay. I hit a snag at exporting. I set the folder to the project folder I created on the desktop. It says exporting movie and as soon as it finishes this error comes up. My best guess is that the file has to be rendered out to the same folder the licenses is downloaded for. Running it as administrator didn't work for me.
