  3. Collecting assets

    This might sound like a silly question but, Is there any easy way or a tool that would collect all the assets into a Houdini folder structure with 1 click? Many times creating a project leaves me with a lot of textures, models, and other assets spread over different hard drives and folders. I know the best way is to throw them straight to the Houdini folder structure but sometimes I just don't know if I will use this asset and I prefer to make it on final export, or just don't bother in order to stay focused on the creative process. Coming from other applications this is a part of the workflow and yet I haven't found any solution here in Houdini to collect all assets easily.

  5. Hello! I'm a student in fourth year in Animation/VFX at Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg, currently starting production on our diploma project including some really awesome VFX shots. The film is a 2 minute social spot promoting renewable energies for private households, the title is "Mother Nature's Power". The story will be told with footage shot in Iceland and in a studio and then some disasters at the film's climax are VFX / Full CG parts. Here are our three key concepts for what we'll create photo-realistically later on: (Oil Rig being crashed by an iceberg) (Coal power plant falling into a sinkhole) (Volcano erupting and the lava turning into solar panels) To get to the point: We already have a big talented roster of film and animation students assigned and scheduled, but we are still looking for help in the department of lighting (Houdini/Redshift/Arnold) and assets (Anything). If you're a passionate artist looking for opportunities to collaborate then we can provide a platform for potentially awesome portfolio work. We'll be working on this for a year from now and we are very flexible with scheduling. Remote work is no issue at all as well. If you are interested, I can send you a project folder with details about our concept and approach as well as our animatic that is almost final and we can talk further. If you wanna know more about the heads of this project, here is the vita from me and the 2nd VFX-Supervisor on this project Lucas Bruchhage: https://www.linkedin.com/in/martin-egger-3d/ (Aixsponza, Mackevision, MPC) https://www.linkedin.com/in/lucas-bruchhage/ (Framestore, MPC) The main director that I share co-direction with is Nicolas Bori, student in Advertising Direction with a lot of production experience also. Check out his website here: https://www.nicolasbori.com/ We're looking forward to hearing from you! Cheers from Stuttgart, Martin Egger Contact: martin.egger@filmakademie.de
  6. Hi all I've been looking at creating usd variants from the following, thinking on using this to create a model with variants from a piece of geometry that has a primitive attribute called "myattr" with 2 values (say half a sphere with myattr="left", and the other side called "right") 1- sopimport an object into LOPS with prim attributes. 2- create an add variant to existing primitive block 3- done Any ideas on how to iterate through each of the primitive attribute values to create this variants? adding a hip file for reference, maybe someone can help Thanks in advance! usdvariants_from_groups.hipnc

  10. Hi! I have created an asset(facial rig), and I want to use it as a part of another asset(character setup). I'm saving both of them into one .otl file, but because I'm using the absolute path for the facial rig("Save to the library" field in Type Properties) it stops working when I'm sending the .otl file to another computer. How can I embed one asset into another, so that they would be contained in one file? Also, when I'm trying to upload an asset to the orbolt, I'm getting an error "Embedded dependencies need to be within nested namespaces." I'm assuming that this error is related. Can you explain to me what does this mean and how can I embed the asset "within nested namespaces"?
  11. We have just published our latest GridMarkets Houdini Artist profile. This time we chat with talented Danish artist Pingo van der Brinkloev about his latest project, Knitbox, a collection of digital assets for the procedural creation of 3D fabric. There's a free downloadable asset for you to play around with. We hope you enjoy the feature, Patricia and the GridMarkets team
  12. Let's say I have an asset I have created with a number of dependencies to the files system, from ready flies, to caches, to creating point clouds and a not trivial (aka linear) approach in which the asset, based on certain conditions or user selection does one thing or another. If I want to publish this assets and all its dependencies to a repository I will have to traverse this, potentially, huge network with subnetworks inside (think Chops inside Sops for example) and rewire all these paths, move files to the repository and then export the asset. My feeling is that this particular task is kind of done in the Render Pre-flight but I wonder if it is accessible and more important, is this the best way to address a more compartmentalised pipeline? How are you guys approaching this? any suggestion? thanks in advance and hope this thread becomes a source of inspiration for everybody.
  13. I am using auto rig to create a character setup. It generates an animation rig and a deform rig. For convenience, I want to combine them into one network, so that animator would only need to create one node. I have just copied my deform rig into the animation rig network. It works, but I'm not sure if it's the right way to go about it. Also, when I'm trying to upload the asset to orbolt, I'm getting an error: "OTL file missing dependencies: [deform_rig_name]. Embedded dependencies need to be within nested namespaces. For more information see the namespaces section in the asset guidelines." So I have two questions: 1. Does it make sense to just copy deform rig into the animation rig to combine them into one asset, or is there a better way to go about it? 2. If I embed one asset into another one, how do I fix the missing dependencies error?
