  1. Pyro Sim For Uni Project

    So for my uni project i need to put fire on some bowling pins while they are being juggled. Im struggling to get the fire to flow correctly as if its being thrown. Ill link my files so people can take a look. Ive messed around with all the setting and i cant seem to tone down the fire. The screenshot i posted on this post has the fire being really blown up even tho all the settings are quite low. I would appreciate any help. Pyro Sim.zip
  2. PYRO HELP

    Hi everyone. I've really given up and this is my last hope. I've looked everywhere for a month now and can only find basic "billowy smoke" tuts and pyro fundamental classes but my brain can't register how to make a certain look. All I want is to create this atmospheric wispy slow smoke like the example I've linked from Simon Holmedals work. My scene consists of a fragrance bottle and I want the smoke to crawl across the screen and bump against the bottle at a slow pace like simon has done in this video. SIMONS EXAMPLE MY SCENE SO FAR WITHOUT THE SMOKE All I need is a simple smoke setup like simons and I am struggling to achieve this result. Whenver I try I get clumpy results that tend to dissipate way too fast and just has a horrible movement all together. I'll also attach my .HIP file for anyone who wants to take a further look at my sim setup so far. I feel like I am not utilising the tool correctly and would love ANY input LINK TO .HIP FILE Thankyou.

    At the top of the link above are different smoke dynamics. Work with fire and much more
  4. Hey guys, help me out. I, for the life of me, can't figure out what's wrong with my render options. I set up my fire the way i want it to. Viewport looks nice. Then I try to render it as PNG and get this ugly result. What should I check? My Volume option for lights is on. Global Illumination is Brute Force.

  6. Nuke Explosion

    hi guys I've been tasked with creating a nuclear explosion for a current project to match this reference: been having lots of issues matching the kind of skirt of the pyro (the bit under the head of the explosion), I was wondering if you have had any tips or tricks. I would really appreciate any help. Thanks all!!
  7. Hello; Please take a look at image bellow. When I add background to my camera, some artifacts appears in middle of my fire. When I turn off background, fire is OK. I can't figure out why camera's background image rises this problem. Thanks for helping.
  8. fire from small source

    Hello!! I have a simple fire simulation using the smoke solver that is using a bush as a source. Do you guys have any recommendations for sourcing on small objects? The bush is incredibly thin in some areas, so it seems the only solution is to crank up the resolution in volume rasterize attributes and the smoke object. Of course it becomes realllllllly slow. Any other ideas that might help speed things up? Thanks

  10. House fire sourcing Pyro

    Hello! I am trying to achieve an effect of fire coming from a window. I am unsure how to approach this. The goal is to have a flame that comes out of the window, and smoke drifts slightly to the left. Currently i have a deformed sphere, as my source geo. It looks ok, but i feel like there might be a better way. Any suggestions are appreciated. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAh92E4UMFw Reference at 3:00 https://youtu.be/s-UOhgKVtQs?t=179
  11. Hi Guys; I tried to create a small fire like a matches flame, but my problem is what I see in viewport is very different from render output. How could I fix this? Thanks. Flame_01.hip
  12. Hi; I tried to achieve a smooth shape and calm fire as a matches flame, but as you can see in image bellow my fire is in a crazy shape..! How could I control shape of fire to make it smooth? Any comments will be appreciated. Thanks.

  14. Create a Trail explosion in Houdini 17.5

    Hey all, I am trying to do a explosion like this in the picture. I am very desperate, I have searched up the whole internet around but have find nothing... I have tried to do some particle emitting from a sphere with some forces but it wasn't like this... Can someone help me please... ps. if someone have time to make a hip file for me it would be a bigger help thanks in advance,
  15. I am having a really tough time matching the reference of cannon firing from an old pirate ship. I am not able to get the smoke quality and shape or the wind that picks it up. My sim always ends up looking too powdery or thick. If I lower dissipation then the fire or explosive part remains too long. I would be grateful for a working scene file or a setup. Here is the reference:
  16. Fire on the ceiling

    Hi everyone, I'm currently trying to create an effect of fire burning under a ceiling, looking something like this: http://footage.framepool.com/en/shot/774901137-explosive-flame-fire-disaster-ceiling-fire-blaze As far as I understand the phenomenon there is a layer of gas floating between the air below and the ceiling above. It gets ignited and starts burning at the interface between air and gas. The flames rising up create this kind of nodule structure by constricting the gas into little pockets. This is the theory but I'm completely stumped on how to create the actual effect. I've tried creating little pockets of fuel but the pyro sim simply burns into them, disregarding the fact that there should be no air that makes combustion possible. Does anyone have some experience with this kind of simulation or at least an idea how to tackle it? Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance Paul

  18. leaf burning

    Hello everyone! Any useful advice on how would it be possible to recreate this effect? Thanks Isy
  19. Hi magicians, I was trying to create render passes for the fire, I want my temperature and fuel to be render as different render passes, I tried to use temperature and fuel as float in extra render images, but the problem is that, I am not been able to get it properly. what is the way to get render passes for temperature, fuel and heat in extra image details ? I would also like to know the way to render normal passes and any other passes which can be rendered out from volume, like opacity pass or something helpful in compositing. I get the fire mask from the shader but it is not that useful. Thank you.

Thank you guys in advance
  24. Can someone please give me an indepth explanation as to why the CPU vs GPU sims look different? I have noticed when making a fire sim, GPU gives a bit more streaky and jagged sim (better licks) than a CPU sim which tends to be a bit more billowy with more 'shrooms' or rounder shapes in general. Sadly GPU crashes on any large scale sims yet I really like the look. How can I get CPU sims to look as streaky and jagged as GPU? Any tricks to stop a GPU sim from crashing? Cheers!
