  1. Fracturing a baked animation, how?

    Hi May be this could help you.
  2. Houdini Flip SIMM on a custom wave mesh

    Hi Have a look at this thread it might give you some direction. cheers
  3. Scatter Point on deforming object

    Not sure if this is what you are looking for,but here's the way you stick points to a deforming geo. Hope that helps Cheers!! Test_Revealing.hipnc
  4. Displace Ocean Spectrum on Deformed Mesh

    thanks alot for your inputs,the deformation is getting better now for sure but still I have no clue about how would I stablize the points knowing the fact that my geometry is deforming. I have scatterd the points on static mesh only, but if I turn on Attribute Interpolate is cause my mesh to flicker,while bypassing it the ocean spectrum is behaving the way it should. waveDisplace_RnD_ODFORCE_v03.hipnc
  5. Displace Ocean Spectrum on Deformed Mesh

    thanks for the pointers,its def.getting somewhere but still the deformations are not proper having these weird horizontal lines which are showing up in the mesh not sure what is causing that. is that because Im not able to understand your 4th pointer ? or its a uv issue ? as the ocean spectrum motion is not smooth,but I followed the thread and I guess the axes are pointing in the right direction. "- also make sure the point reference frames are stable during your deformation " ...could you pls throw some light on this ? waveDisplace_RnD_ODFORCE_v02.hip
  6. Displace Ocean Spectrum on Deformed Mesh

    Hey Tomas I tried your method but its not working on my mesh Not sure whats the problem I am getting the same results I was getting before. Would really appreciate if you can have a look at the file waveDisplace_RnD_ODFORCE_v01.hip
  7. Displace Ocean Spectrum on Deformed Mesh

    Hi Tomas thanks for the quick reply. I already saw the master class but no luck with that too as the method they showed was based on grid but in my case I am using a custom shaped geometry(the above hip one is just a dummy mesh). but the ODFORCE link you shared might seem to do the trick ,will try that out and see where it takes me and share the progress. Thanks a lot karan
  8. Hi Guys ! Need your help in solving an issue I'm stuck on,doing this wave RnD for a project,I need to add small detail thru displacement, thought ocean Spectrum might do the trick but its giving me weird result Is there any way I can use ocean Spectrum for this ?or if anyone can suggest some other technique to do the same. Attaching my sample hip file,the HDR map, test render and the ref. I'm following. Would really appreciate if anyone can give me some head-ups Cheers Karan ! red_hill_curve_1k.hdr waveDisplace_RnD_ODFORCE.hip
  9. Cloud timelapse approach?

    Hi This link might help you,thou it's in Russian.

  11. Dynamic Cracks on a glass dome

    Hi Rex I can't upload this file as its related to the project, but I can make a simplified version of it later to show the technique I used to make cracks. But that will take sometime as I am on tight schedule. Cheers !!
  12. Dynamic Cracks on a glass dome

    DONE !!!
  13. Dynamic Cracks on a glass dome

    Hi Guys, I finally started to work on my shot from this week and managed to get the attached look for my cracks, now the next step is I need to shatter this apart. The problem I face is if I polyextrude these curves(as cutters) for boolean with the Dome, I am not getting proper individual chunks for obvious reason that the curves are not properly connected. What I am thinking is to project Cd thru these curves on the Dome extract the texture from there and then paint those gaps,bring in the image back to houdini and use trace SOP to get all connected curves. But unfortunately trace SOP is tracing the edges of the stroke thus giving a Border and not a single line curve. Can anyone suggest me any idea how can I fill these gaps to get a proper curve to be used as a cutter for the boolean. And let me tell you these cracks are driven by lot of random variables, so just by increasing there length will not gonna work, as that changes the look of the crack completely. Hope someone can suggest me some option. Thanks a lot
  14. Dynamic Cracks on a glass dome

    Hi Monan, Thanks a lot for your time in putting up that file,very nicely done setup,surely it will give me a good starting point cheers !!
  15. Dynamic Cracks on a glass dome

    Hi everyone, I'm working on this FX where the surface(a glass dome)is getting cracked, so it can not be pre fractured and it will eventually shatter hence dynamic cracks. I was wondering if any of you have an idea on how to approach this. I know Lsystem,Boolean Sop and Voronoi fracture could be the key elements in this but not sure about the right approach. Thanks a lot for any kind of help. Karan
