cdenny posted a topic in ModelingI'm trying to procedurally make scooped ice cream. Everything I've seen uses linear striations by increasing a single axis frequency, but from looking at references there's actually a curvature to the 'cracking' that occurs when you scoop things like ice cream or cookie dough. To get good results the best method seems to be using a vdb/volume vop workflow, so using the normal or predicted uv route doesn't seem like an option? Furthermore being able to offset the poles seems like it'd be useful, so the noise pattern isn't perfectly centered. I feel like pos into something to cylindrically distort what gets sent to the noise node is what I'm aiming for, but I don't know how to execute that or if that's even the right route. I'd appreciate any help! Here's a great example from Rohan Dalvi. But here you see it's actually distorted and 'pinches' or converges at the poles. It may be a small difference but I think it's an important one. And an example for scoops of cookie dough. Cheers, Chris
Hey there! I am newer to houdini so this may be an obvious question, but I am currently working with a mesh that i would like to have part of it be a higher subdivided mesh so I can add parts of high detail to the mesh without having the entire thing be made of millions of polys. I was able to get that to work fine but after I subdivide the mesh using a subdivide node the option to close cracks is greyed out and it won't let me close the cracks that are created. Does anyone know why, and how can I use the close cracks function?
I have an object shattering using a voronoi fracture, i'm importing it to Maya as an alembic cache but i have to manually select all of the inside faces of the cracks to texture them differently. Is there a way i can select all inside faces on a voronoi fracture object in Houdini to make things quicker? Thanks
