  1. i switched to 10BGE a few years ago, all files are on a NAS, including sim caches, it made a big difference from old Gigabit..def worth it
  2. guided ocean layer leak

    ooook, so that happens when Reseeding it turned off so, how cna i keep splasy sploshy sims w reesiding on? and the 'guidingcollison, guidinsurface' . etc where do they come from? And if i make a DOP from scratch how do i get this on my Flip solver...?? fanks
  3. guided ocean layer leak

    Hi! I am using the shelf guided ocean layer, and it all works ok, until i decrease the particle separation, and the flip particles leak downward from the guided sim the top part is the the ocean preview, the layer of flip below, dripping down. Am i supposed to plug the ocean preview as a collider in DOPs?? thanks in advance, i have been going on with this ocean thing and i cant get it to work properly! in addition to this, as i would like to build this all i one Geometry node,,,( i like it that way) where are this guidingcollision, etc attribs coming from? thanks! O/.
  4. I think it is due to a permission issue on the DSM end combined with alembic,,,not sure how to fix it other than the ACCESS METHOD
  5. same here! i had a DS411, got a DS1817, load file...error!! very odd...will change the vairalbe you say see if that woks on my end...anyone has figured out how to fix this, maybe on the Synology NAS end?

  7. Hi people... I got some serious vdb issues, where i got some vdb combining, tweaking,,,combining with other poly to vdb , etc. I have some xfroms on the geom before it gets converted to vdb and combined. It goes well for a while, i make keyframes on the xforms...and at some point on the vdb combine, the xforms stuff up and move out of position. It seems not to like xfroms up the chain, pre vdb conversion. I do get some odd warnings on some of the VDB combine, i was getting is a 'mismatch surface & surface value mismatch (0.025 & 0.075)' when both A&B vdbs are 0.025, (but gets fixed with a re sample before going in to the vdb combine on both A& B I also get a warning on 'surface & surface transforms don't match' on the vdb combine that stuffs up my transforms. Pain! I would try to do all my geo transforms then save an alembic and load back without extra xforms, but i do need to line this up to the millimeter, and I can't due to things going off ..... I am runnning 14.0.395 thanks in advance !

  10. Remote desktop

    Hi ! I got an office space where i have the machines /server /fast interneto..when working past dinner time or at unreasonable hours (often) I do it from home, by using RDC (remote desktop connection) on win7, it works well with most apps, but Houdini wont run trough it. It runs using TeamViewer,,,but is sloooooooooooow. I have a gaming video card at home and nothing too fancy at the office, which works fine, i don't know if this is a driver issue (got latest nvidia drivers) or some configuration i can change in houdini? thanks O/.
  11. id to PT

    cool, will try that ! ...one laaaast thing, I am now copying spheres to the particles, and i am again having to deal with the PT changing each frame and using Stamp fit01(rand($PT),0.02,0.05) , i get the spheres changing size each frame as they get assigned a new particle each time..not very nice bubbles! So i am again trying to find out why the real flow particle ID can't be accessed by more vanilla sop's. I don't mind getting to point wrangle but if there was an 'easier' or less code-y way of doing that? even if it is at the expense of performance,,as i am only dealing with a few thousand particles. thanks, O/.

    ahhhh!!! fanx!!
  13. id to PT

    muchas gracias guys... I am having now issues with the deleting side of things....using a group SOP by expression $CR == 0, works, but the the Blast, kind of wont refresh the selection
  14. id to PT

    I can't get this to work... the @realflowId is called @id but even with that i wont get random colors.....doh! one second... @Cd = {1,1,1}; @rand = rand(@id); if (@rand < 0.5) { @Cd = {0,0,0}; } boomshakalaka! thanks guys!!
  15. id to PT

    i modified ChristopherC wrangle a bit if (rand(@id) < 0.95) { removepoint(geoself(), @ptnum); } so i can delete as a percent, a good result but still curious on the renaming of attributes.
