  1. Hello Everyone, I have just create a ground breaking interaction effect on Houdini 17. In this tutorial we cover how to use H17 to creat ground breakking interaction with character. We will learn how to isolate inside group to create random debris, smoke and control the displacement on rendering of breaking parts. Please, Feel free to Check in here: https://www.cgcircuit.com/tutorial/ground-breaking-interaction Regards, Nhan Vo
  2. 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,
  3. Exploding Fruit!

    Hello, there good people, I really need help with this subject and I don't know what am I doing wrong to not get my replies on my posts If anyone knows why please help. Anyways I wanted to get a fruit to explode and be squishy, So Fracture RBD isn't really an option. And when I try FEM you can't really create a shell object as it fills the whole object with tets. Plus FEM is so slow and unstable -Don't know if I am doing something wrong-. Also, a sidenote how do I add custom exploding force to FEM Sims. Thank you so much in advance and I really hope someone helps me out as this is driving me crazy.
  4. How to make a cool explosion

    Hey all, I need some help, to create a cool explosion like in the picture... I want to make it with some particles... How I can make this effect?? can someone make a list how to make it...
  5. 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:
  6. Strange Smoke issues

    Hey all, so I have a explosion, but the smoke is like small Squares...that's very strange. What I make wrong...the smoke shouldn't be squares but normal... (I hope everybody understand me, what I try to explain) I hope someone can solve this problem... it would be very nice edit: one file is damaged so try the other Smoke explosion problem.hipnc Smoke explosion problem.hipnc

  9. Smoke is "killing" me

    While the subject may have been true in the Bay Area last month, the subject is much more about the vexation of getting smoke right. I had found a little bit of time to go through Steven Knipping's Rigids II video and decided to add some debris and smoke. To source the debris and smoke, I processed the constraint breaks. For the smoke source, I made a tiny pop sim with noise and some velocity filtering. The smoke for the explosion has pretty high velocities, e.g. around 30 units/s. Initially, the smoke was basically just smooth mushrooms. I then introduced a high value disturbance against the velocity field in the low density areas. This broke up the smoke but I never was able to get it right. Here is where I ended after I had decided I had spent too much time; see video below - ignore obnoxious sound track :-) Would anyone here be willing to point me in a direction on how to improve this? I ran a bunch of wedges against lower resolution simulations. The overall smoke container ended up being really large, so sim-ing and rendering low resolution wedges took a few hours of turn around. Hip file attached for anyone who wants to take a look. Thank you, Niels. rigids2_v7.hiplc
  10. pyro explosion using grain

    hi, am working on an explosion shot (desert explosion). i have seen some grain adverted pyro examples . can anybody give some tips doing it ?
  11. Hi Does anyone know good tutorials for learning Explosions? Thx in Regards Balaji J
  12. previs large explosion scenes

    What is the general approach to blocking out and timing previz for large multi explosion effects(with RB debris). I'm hesitant to jump into pyro until I have a rough idea of size/amount/speed/variety. I'm considering just animating primitives with changing colours and getting these signed off first, but I'm worried the decision makers won't be able to see past simple geometry references. I guess studios have stockpiles of explosion assets they can work with. Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks James
  13. Animate parameter per cluster

    Hello ppl! Have a question about pyro clustering that i've been thinking about for a long time now. So i have multiple explosions on impact and i'm using pyro clustering for that. How do you animate parameters per cluster? For example i need the timescale to be 2 when an explosion starts and gradually come down to 0.5 after few frames, but per cluster. Any ideas on how to approach this? Unfortunately i can't share my scene file. But you can find the similar setup here. Thank you!
  14. flip object explosding

    hey! I'm trying to turn a deformed box into a flip and let it explode (the deformed box is just to fake some numbers exploding into water). I'm looking into some way of applying a radial force to my flip sim, but metaballs doesn't work, not sure if I'm missing something...or if there's a smarter way of doing it... countdown_explosion_v002_t000.hiplc
  15. Explosion Trail

    Hi, What is a good way to get good looking tendrils/explosion trails like in the photo. Everytime I attempt this look, my sim just winds up mushrooming out and I can't get the motion I want. Here is the full video of the reference: https://youtu.be/obmbR4lP6Ws I have tried many things. I tried emitting from particles and used the trail sop to create a trail of particles, I have tried emitting from just a few particles, I tried geometry, but I can't seem to get the look that I want. Here is another sim that I did where you can see motion is not that great. https://vimeo.com/262084530 Thanks
  16. Fluid Explosion with Viscosity

    Hey guys, I was having a little trouble with my fluid explosion. I want it to be very similar to this but I'm having a few problems. 1. The ground plane doesn't react with the fluid. 2. I want the explode the fluid in a series of directions but for some reason, it is only going in one. 3. I can't seem to get it to burst. Instead, it keeps emitting I'm sorry I haven't done any fluid simulation before but really want to learn. Thank you! Fluid_Explosion_002.hip
  17. Slow motion explosion

    Hi everyone, I`m currently working on my 2nd year university project. I have 3 buildings exploding together somehow i managed to get that bit in slow motion by using timewarp right after the dop network. (Don`t think if that was the right way anyways). However the same method is not working with pyro explosion sim. I have the sim ready but i need to make it 4 times slower than it is. I`ve been struggling for a while so really appreciate some suggestions. Thanks.
  18. Explosion Rbd with pyro clustering

    Hi, i'm working on an explosion scene with pyro that existing from pop trails. but when i simulating my pyro, the area of sim is going bigger so much and killing me. i think there is a way like on that video is there any way to make multi containers like clustering my rbd explosion as like that for speed up sim? i attached the hip file that i found on web and learning from it.

  19. I'm looking for a tutorial. I want to make something like dust smoke that spreads from all directions after the bomb explodes. Thank you for your help. Dear.
  20. Grain particles explosion

    Hello I have a very strange situation where the grain particles suddenly explode along a line!.instead of volume collision I used "use surface collision" for collision detection for the body of the butterfly .as you can see there is no problem, but right the next frame the particles explode in such a strange way that I couldn't figure out why. I checked the setting for dozens of times... I found nothing wrong.I have other simulation with the same setting, It is worse.please let me know If something's wrong. thank you in advance
  21. Magic explosion

    Im thinking for few days how can I start with this kind of effect: Pinterest I was trying with animating noise on the shape and emit particles from it to get something similar but it looks so bad. There is no topics about this kind of effects so maybe someone here can give me so tips or did something similar? It shouldn't be longer than 1 second.

  24. Vacuum space explosion

    Hallo! I'm trying to figure out how to properly do space explosion / impact on mars or any other planet that has no atmosphere. I've read huge topic about smoke behavior: http://forums.odforce.net/topic/18397-get-rid-of-mushroom-effect-in-explosion-and-add-details-in-the-opening/ So let's begin from simple things. REFERENCE: so behavior of dust/particles is... super simple. About like this: Ans this behavior is everything I can't achieve with smokesolver. Maybe I'm idiot. Test of explosion: 1. microsolver "projectmultigrid": When I turn off this microsolver it actually does what I'm trying to achive: no mushrooms because of no pressure. Thing is, I'm trying to somehow control gradient between on/off. Because velocity is not expanding. And there are a lot of artifacts. Mushrooms in explosions are the effect of the pressure (from what I understand), and as it's wrote in large Jeff post (in link above) : divergence field. But because I'm working right now on smoke solver only : it does not have this field (no combustion model). So main question is (probably): where should I control pressure. Or disable it? I've modified it on the dop level, with gasvop with pressure subtracted from itself, mult by 0 - but it did not had any effect (both presolve and postsolve). I assume it calculates this vel somewhere in between (?). I must be doing something wrong. 2. How to make smoke just keep going without twirls and all of that "nice stuff". Just inital vel, that's it. Imagine super simple sphere, default pyro, all off, only vel up. What I've tried: - somehow remove pressure (not sure I've done this right, but I could delete temperature, vel, density... but pressure without any luck) - advect vel field itself (no difference in vel = no pressure), but that lead to uncontrolled vel turbulence, when used with more complex emitter. - somehow blurring vel field and adding it when projectmultigrid was off to expand smoke. - make those red particles a volume and to look like smoke, but there is problem with disappearing (they kind of always pop out of existence even if particles fade nice and slow). Some tests: advecting smoke only with "pipevel" , again projectmultigrid off (no mushrooms = good)
  25. Hello everyone, I am trying to achieve an effect similar to the video bellow: Explosion I am currently working on the secondary arrowed smoke that rises right after the explosion. My problem is that I cant seem to figure out how to make the beginning of the arrow sharp and also I want the smoke to expand significantly more after the initial arrow (check attached image) I am currently doing this with an emitter, is that the right way to go or I should use another technique like creating velocity arrows and using the pump relationship? Any other advice on creating this effect or on fluid simulations in general is welcomed. Thanks a lot
