  1. UVs for procedural corals

    Hi there, I'm making some proecural corals for a game engine situation using VDB advection: so of course the highpoly models need to be reduced and have normals and height etc maps baked, but i'm having a bit of a nightmare trying to find a auto UV solution that can create Uvs that don't contain errors, see below a baked AO texture resulting from auto UVs, the errors are even more noticeable on the normals channel: Could anyone advise me on what settings to try in the autoUV SOP? I'm currently using the UV autoseam, I tried cluster but its just crashing my machine. It doesn't matter if it takes an hour+ to generate the UVs for each coral, or should I just abandon trying to autoUV shapes this organic and weird? UV maps are always very confusing for me. Any help at this time is hugely appreciated, H
  2. Good day ladies and gentlemen, This student project is a Houdini tool aimed at generating game-ready rooms using predefined asset libraries, developed by myself and Mihnea Stoica, over the course of five months, at Breda University of Applied Sciences. We developed this tool, as part of an outsource group, for a student game project, called Captain Starshot, developed by Double Door Games. We wanted to see how flexible and adaptable the tool was with different asset libraries, therefore, by courtesy of team Morbid, a student game team at Breda University of Applied Sciences, in one week we were able to make a new test case, where the results of the generated rooms looked very promising. All kind of feedback and suggestions are welcome ----------------- Developers: · Gonzalo A.

  5. Hello, I am relatively new to houdini - I have used it years prior for some things but now I have just acquired an indie license for development of my unreal game. At the moment I am making a building facade system that will place premade modular pieces depending on a few variables. I was hoping that perhaps some guru's could peruse this little plan i have drawn up for how i envision it to work. at the moment I am trying to workout step 4 by using bounding boxes made from the original geo to select the new resampled walls and place them into sections. I want to bound them and in the groupSOP name the sections per iteration of the foreach node they are inside. finding the correct syntax for this has been a problem so any help would be greatly appreciated. Ill be keeping this thread alive over the course of my findings. Cheers Az BuildingGenerator.hiplc
