  1. Hi Everyone, First: I only need advice on M1 Max performance. I know the fact that Custom PC is a cheaper solution (I have one currently). I will travel a lot in the next few months. I want to buy a M1 Max 16'' with: - 10 Core CPU - 32 Core GPU - 32Gb Memory - 1Tb SSD My current PC Specs: - Ryzen 9 12-Core - RTX2070 Super 8Gb - 64Gb Ram - 1Tb Nvme / 1Tb SSD I wonder if 32Gb will be sufficient to run some simulations (Vellum, Fracture and Fluid)? I'm in doubt regarding the 64Gb Upgrade (or not) I know that.. there's never something like ''too much RAM'' But I wonder if someone had already did a try on Houdini simulations on a 32Gb M1 Max 16''? Is it decent? Are you able to work properly? It's already a lot of money, and even if, when you spend 5000$.... 500$ upgrade could appears ''okay'', But I don't want to spend ''too much'' at the end. (I read myself again..Yeah.. 5000$(with taxes) is already .. a sh*t load of cash) I don't work exclusively on Houdini, but also on Unreal, Unity, Substance, Blender. Ps: At the end, this need to be my main (and only) computer Thank you for your time! Take care EDIT: For the same price (~5000$) Do you have some very good (windows) laptop in mind? (at least 64gb RAM and very good GPU // Optimized for VFX)

  8. Hi Guys, I was trying to copy an object along multiple curves. I have attached few images that show how I get these curves. What happens at the end I'm getting some curves that have flipped winding orders, this eventually changes the tangent direction. Due to which when I use copy to points sop it flips my object. Kindly share your thoughts on fixing this issue.
  9. Hello community, I am doing a SpaceX starship rocket landing on an extended ocean (flip sim integrated), right now I am working on the rocket exhaust which should interact with the flip simulation. 1. I have created the pyro simulation of the exhaust flame and now I want to add this pyro flame sim to the rocket model where the exhaust should be. 2. I have done a point expression for the pyro cache, it has worked out. BUT now, when I want to render it, the flame is staying on the grid and isn't on the rocket. I hope you understand a bit about my idea. Here is a screenshot with the problem. here is the hip file with the 3d modell https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Q_c7VAu4qidMzSdMLl7IBvPs3VeqTlMi?usp=sharing I would really appreciate help, because I have set a deadline for my own and I want to reach it!

The app also functions as a social tool for users to capture the world and share it with anyone. The future of the app is iterating towards a localized, 3D creation tool for any 3D, AR and VR experience later this year. A lot of exciting stuff on the horizon!

  19. Hi guys, Far far far away, in a galaxy... there was someone that had a tutorial online about morphing a text into a logo. He did some font fixing, creat a trail of the morph, some rendering mantra stuff.. It was coming out at the same time as the CMIVFX ParticleFx tutorial. I know its a old one but I am looking for it but have no clue what the name is / or which company. Anyone? Im just looking for that specific name, not a solution to fix something ;-) thnx
  20. Hey, everyone ! I know some of you are having hard times looking for a good Houdini tutorials? Found a really cool website with video tutorials. I like the author of the tutorial, he explains everything very clear. Just in case someone will need video tutorials , here’s the link to check full list of his tutorials: https://www.cgcircuit.com/instructor/tyler.bay Hope it helps! Best, Chris
  21. I'm having an issue where some of my instanced objects are not casting shadows when rendering to Arnold. In my example project that I've uploaded, box_instance_1 is not casting shadows on the ground plane where as box_instance_2 is casting shadows perfectly fine. Even stranger, when I hide box_instance_1 from render, box_instance_2 suddenly does not cast shadows. As far as I know I've set up both instances in the same way. Clearly something weird is going on, and I'd love to know if anyone else has encountered this issue? I'm on version 16.5.439 rock_instances.hip
  22. Hi guys, I have this footage: and I want to turn it into this: (This image was made in Photoshop) The main problem are those street lamps in the middle and i dont know how delete them and after that integrate the 3D elements (chairs, plants, trees, etc) Any idea? Steps by step? Process of integration? Thanks
