  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. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  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

    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
  13. Dynamic Cracks on a glass dome

    DONE !!!
  14. 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
  15. 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 !!
  16. Particles avoiding objects

    Hi Matt, That's a very sweet and simple setup thanks for sharing, but just wondering what if one needs to avoid the actual scene geometry ? Can we convert them into to metaballs ?
  17. Particles avoiding objects

    Hi Mike, Glad it worked for you,I'm sure there must be other ways to accomplish the same effect and being a beginner myself too,I am also learning the tricks and trade of Houdini every single day and diving in Vops context feels scary at times Cheers !!
  18. Particles avoiding objects

    Hi, Have a look at this, if you haven't,it might solve your purpose. Cheers !!
  19. pyro parent to animation

    Hi For long distance sims pyro clustering is the option to go for.Have a look at the hip file attached,Hope this setup will work for you Cheers !! pyroClusterRnD_ODFORCE.hipnc
  20. Custom Vel inside POP

    Hi Guys Just playing around with custom vel to disturb my POP sims,wondering is there any alternative or better work around for the same ? especially if I need to pump the velocities from the animated characters inside the POP. Would really appreciate if you guys can share your take for the same . Cheers !! customVel_RnD_v01.hipnc
  21. Pyro Cluster Sim Issue

    Hey Julien Thanks a lot for your support :),I still need to learn many things from people like you, as I am still a newbie in the world of Houdini. cheers
  22. Pyro Cluster Sim Issue

    Hi guys I made this pyro cluster setup based on the technique showed by Atom in one of his tutorials. The problem I am facing is that the Vel Volumes are not getting transferred in the DOP. Any idea where the issue is ? Thanks a lot for your help.Cheers pyroClusterRnD_v01_ODFORCE.hip pyroClusterRnD_v01_ODFORCE.hip pyroClusterRnD_v01_ODFORCE.hip
  23. Pyro Cluster Sim Issue

    Hi Julien I tried the way you suggested but still the velocities are not getting pumped,not sure what I am doing wrong Would really appreciate if you could point out my mistake (pyroCluster_RnD_v02) on the other hand a friend of mine suggested me another way to make the same setup and the velocities are getting pumped perfectly fine in that (pyroClusterRnD_Optn02) Cheers pyroClusterRnD_v02_ODFORCE.hipnc pyroClusterRnD_Optn02_ODFORCE.hipnc
  24. Pyro Cluster Sim Issue

    Thanks a lot Julien for your help. I will try it out now.Cheers!!
  25. Pyro Cluster Sim Issue

    So you mean we can't pump velocities like that for cluster sims ?Then what would be the right approach to handle a situation like this ? Would really appreciate if anyone can guide me on that.
