  1. VFX Short film 2014

    Here is my final short film for Sheridan's 10 month Visual Effects course. Everything from pitch, storyboards, previsualization, shooting plates, editing and vfx is done entirely by myself. I had the support and feedback of a great group of teachers and classmates. Breakdown to come soon. All shots you see have VFX elements, how many can you spot? Programs Used: - Nuke 8.0v3 - Houdini 13 - Maya 2014 - PF Track - Mari 2.5v2 - Adobe Creative Suite Timeline Included: - September - October (Pitch) - October-November (storyboards) -November-December (previsualization) - January-February (production shoots for whole class) - February-March (editing) - March-June 20th (VFX) All visual elements were created entirely by myself Music: "Happy End" by Distemper **Feel Free to inquire regarding any questions or critiques as I am still fine tweaking some details over the next few weeks. ** https://vimeo.com/98883004
  2. Peter Claes Showreel 2014

    Hey, I just made a new reel with some of the shots I've worked on over the past years: New showreel for 2014: All effects work is in Houdini, most stuff is rendered in mantra. Of course some of this is a team effort, so I definitely want to give a shout out to all the talented people that have advised me and that I have worked with over the past years. I've grown a lot and it is because of working and learning from some really talented people! Odforce is still one of my favorite forums and a great Houdini community, even though I've not been able to post as much. My H1B visa here in the US is in its final year, so I have to get some perspective again. It can be extended for another 3 years, but we'll see what happens next. At the moment I'm looking for options. I might need to play with the encoding for Vimeo a bit as it seems to lose/blur some details, but I'll figure that out over the weekend. Kind regards, Peter
  3. Crumbling packed RBD object

    I plundered the forums here yesterday to get started and found a lovely method that I cannibalized to get a little further, but it's blowing up in my face. Imagine a tall pane of glass crumbling from the top down. Easy no? Well, I wish it was. I'm using a sop solver to turn on the individual pieces, and that works fine. However when I try to use the same switching attribute to set the velocity I get pieces flying in both directions (weirdly forwards and backwards). I even tried to use the attribute to offset the geometry, but the pieces don't want to move. All I want them to do is pop out and then fall with gravity. What am I missing? Isn't the SopSolver where you can alter the sim as it goes along?! (Note, the sim doesn't start until frame 36.) shatter_02.hip
  4. Building destruction.

    Hola This is my building destruction. Rigid bodies bullet OpenCL fracture - variable glue. 2 Particle debris 2 Dust simulations - variable turbulence. smokesolver - pyrosolver PBR Rendering
  5. Here is my house destruction WIP. On the videos in this post you can see what I made myself, before I stuck with the problem of a concave geometry in the corners (which can not properly handled by the Bullet engine). By default, the Voronoi Fracture HDA creates concave geometry in the corners (you can see it on the screenshots below) and if there is another object located in the corner (for example bricks behind the stucco), the simulation starts to explode (because the Bullet improperly complements such geometry to convexity). I tried to search some info about how to implement a Convex Decomposition algorithm in Houdini (may be HACD*), but I haven't any result yet. All what I have for now, is my concavity-testing VEX node, that finds all the concave parts, but I have no idea how to cut them on a convex pieces. It will be cool, if somebody can help me with this problem. Below you can see my tests. *Hierarchical Approximate Convex Decomposition http://kmamou.blogsp...ate-convex.html http://www.khaledmammou.com/hacd.html http://masc.cs.gmu.edu/wiki/ACD

  7. Hi, I'm Nick Nimble, specialized in the simulation and rendering of: - Gases, such as: smoke, fire, fog and dust. - Liquids, such as water and viscous fluids like blood, toothpaste or caramel - Rigid objects, such as a collapsing building, blocks or a stack of products that fall. - Procedural effects, such as: a split-flap display, a digital sea with a large number of boats. Earlier this year I worked at Double Negative in London on Man of Steel as a Houdini FX TD. I'm from The Netherlands, I can work remotely or on site and I'm eglible to work in the european union.
