  1. This can probably be done in many ways without using TOPs.... I have in several places four filecache nodes that I want to be able to run one after another in a particular order. They exist in different levels and dont know about each other at this point. I wonder what would be a good way to have them run in sequence. Is TOPs overkill for such a task? Thank you.

  3. I have a scene with two FEM objects. I want them to move towards world origin, collide, deform , bounce back and move towards each other again, collide, bounce back. Like a pendulum balls. between 5 and 10 collisions.I have used Magnet force with animated Activation by certain $FF == 2 || $FF == 150 ... But it is not sexy. Or very flexible. Can someone please have a looksi and help with some more clever magic to achieve pengilum balls collide like repetitive collisions? femMagnet.hip
  4. Post-Voronoi Boolean Problem

    Booleans can misbehave when applied a second time on a geometry. Cure for this is to select "No Polygons" dropdown option on the first boolean. I dont know the reason why it is giving the undesired result after a voronoi. Applying the boolean before the voronoi is a workaround. Not answering your initial question but hope its helpful...
  5. Good Od folks Hi. I have a bunch (70) of photogrametry scans I need to bring in to animate in Houdini. They are sequentially named 01.fbx - 70.fbx.. Is there a "goto" way to import a sequence of fbx files and preserve materials? I am getting in the geometry with file node and $2F but the materials don't make it thou. Cheers

    I am in!
  7. Move pivot/geo to center of pivot/geo/world center

    $CEX $CEY $CEZ on a transform node? Or directly to the Pivot values.

    I forgot to check the Create Packed Geometry flag Thanks so much Adrian. The Itrinsics is still a mystery to me thou. If you could break it down further that would be fantastic. Cheers
  10. Rigids 3 tutorial Matrix math

    I downloaded the file and it opened for me here on H16.0.557....It may take some time to open the file as I locked the incoming fractured geo so you can have source file. And the display flag should be on the node right before the last NULL. "restoring_oldP" On the second image you can see the params on pack and unpack nodes.. cheers
  11. I am doing the Rigids 3 helicopter crashing tut and am kind of stuck. Steven is brief in explaining this part identity matrix. I wish it was broken down further. I store the current P as oldP, unpack, zero all the transforms, move to world origin, clean attribs, repack and put them back to the oldP. However parts of the geometry dont make back to the oldP. It is the parts that were prefractured by voronoi. I think it is ither in the unpacking or one of the attrib promotes that needs to be adjusted. I am just not sure what is going on under the hood... argh! Helly_01.hip
  12. I did a search on the web and it was the first animated gif I found. The version of Maya and comparison of Houdini to Maya is not the point here. Improving workflow for users like me who might have had use for the feature is
  13. Would it be too much of a hustle to implement ability to "tear out" sub menus like one is able to do in Maya? It would be beneficial in learning when studying the nodes. Especially in the node area when using the TAB.
  14. Yupp. And looks like one needs to be in Netherlands. Bummer. It would be great if it was streamed or recorded and shared.
