  1. How much memory do you use?

    I was pushing through 1 billion voxel sims with 64GB but I'm now looking at Eddie's much better memory management system as a solution to stop run away ram installations. It has many bounding boxes with 6(pow)3 voxels in each that adhere to the simulation instead of single box as in houdini.
  2. Houdini 17 Wishlist

    if I heard it correctly at the Sydney Sidefx presentation H17 will be released around Sept, also there is some nice work done on the muscles that might be available in some months. Had to leave early so probably missed a ton of stuff too.
  3. Please allow me...

    Usefulness of any forums for me is weighed in this philosophy: The amount of energy necessary to refute bullshit is an order of magnitude bigger than to produce it. And whilst Odforce was quite unique years ago there are many many other avenues today that will help me achieve the unique vfx work I want to produce.
  4. Common Sense

    ummm I have no interest in you, my interest is in robust solutions that scale in Houdini. For whatever reason you are personalising this feedback.
  5. Common Sense

    I did test it at various other settings it's a pretty poor solution to start a thread with and trumpet to other solutions. Not sure of the goal tbh unless you are aiming for ad hoc instead of robust solutions.
  6. Common Sense

    and that doesn't work for a scatter of 113..
  7. Common Sense

    Scatter set to 55.. In the end not sure of why this entire thread exists. Common sense is nothing more than the education you have before you are about 20. attrTransfer_fixed_55.hipnc
  8. Houdini for Mathematicians

    Im sure French schools teach continuos geometry. Discrete always comes after calculus.
  9. Houdini for Mathematicians

    Which school teaches discrete geometry mathematics in middle school?
  10. Common Sense

    Eh? ...the common sense solution isn't very robust. Just add more scatter points to see it fall apart.
  11. Cache Optimization

    On the Save filter tab, cast all the attributes to 16bit float. Also remove any you don't want.
  12. Random link of interest

    Out of interest are oscars also awarded to individuals instead of companies?
  13. Is AMD potentially risky? (Threadripper)

    I assume we can disable the patch if we prefer full speed over security, or, just run an unpatched OS, if the bug even affects us.... sidefx?
  14. GLSL Pipeline in Houdini

    What do you want the points to look like?
  15. Zdepth in point VOP

    Haven't heard you can pull back GL info into Houdini. It's a one way street afaik.
