  1. Hi everybody! Check out my video about RnD of framework for robust OpenCL development. In this video I describe my old developement: framework for development GPU algorithms like cloth/wire/grains/particle/fluid dynamics. It is implemented as Python code snipped with set of extension functions for control some OpenCL specific tasks. It gives opportunity to develop complex algorithms without compilation, without HDK/C++, without even closing Houdini sessions.
  2. Houdini hair styling tool in VR

    I would start with Houdini engine for Unreal to grab some content to VR scene (in case if you are using Unreal as VR engine). I did some research with VR for Houdini (I think it is opposite what you are trying to do), now it is very alpha version:

  4. Wow. Nice to see this topic! The question on first page was about my setup. I did not see this topic before, and I just surprized why nobody noted me about this topic because I am always open to explain any of my techniques. It is just very cool research about several steps displacement for curved surfaces. I did not check current setup of Rayman, but I can suppose that it would be useful to calculate width of each step by original polygon size. Because each step means one access to pointcloud so we want to minimize that. Also I use quaternions instead of matrix because it is vector4 versus vector9 or 16 for matix
