Hello everyone, I'm trying to set a blackhole effect like gargantua in Interstellar, in a low cost way. The idea is to us a grid as a renderer, parented to a camera (sticked to its frustum), to send a ray from camera position, through the grid, to a sphere and if the ray sent is in the periphery of this sphere it curls/bend. I have found the script to do that in another software but I don't know how to get the global ray direction information and how to use it. I thought use a snippet in a material to write the script and put the material on the grid. Maybe it's not even the most relevant idea to do this effect. I'am open to other solutions Don't know if I'm really understandable ^^' Thank you anyway in advance
vinyvince posted a topic in General Houdini QuestionsOk, here's a challenge if you accept it I built a full CG city myself, mostly procedural with custom artistic inputs and real data. Heres some preview , raw render, wip, haven t merged my vehicules traffic yet... I tried using Deep learning for mask generations of my hundred different input facades variations but finally, i went for an old school trick. So far, so good for now Now i need to have the full env being affected by a massive black hole, emergy from below, absorbing the city like a worm coming from underground. But the coming disaster is first seen with the sky and atmosphere which turned amazingly wild and stormy... It's almost 20km2 square area with tons of elements, geometry topology is very mixed so i need a global approach based on point clouds or whatever. My brain is more artistically oriented so this is the kind of things which was usually given to a more technically VFX oriented person. I have all kind of slow moving camera from above, distant and more close to the ground and building too. Night time.. At the end i need to export the all things back to Max and Vray... (Not my choice but need to..) Which approach will you take yourself? how would you solve this problem knowing the limited ressources and budget but on the other side creatively open ? Cheers, to every suggestion from the magicians vincent* ________________________________________________________________ Vincent Thomas (Avalailable January 2017) Senior Lighting Lookdev / Env DigiMatte Artist / Creative Designer VFX supervisor since 1998 http://fr.linkedin.com/in/vincentthomas (PS: actually looking for freelance Houdini artist to hire...
