  1. Hi magicians, I was trying to create render passes for the fire, I want my temperature and fuel to be render as different render passes, I tried to use temperature and fuel as float in extra render images, but the problem is that, I am not been able to get it properly. what is the way to get render passes for temperature, fuel and heat in extra image details ? I would also like to know the way to render normal passes and any other passes which can be rendered out from volume, like opacity pass or something helpful in compositing. I get the fire mask from the shader but it is not that useful. Thank you.

  3. Creating terrain in houdini

    Hello everyone, I recently started using houdini and I think I have fallen in love with it. That aside, I'm currently working on creating terrain for an animation but I got stuck. The reference I'm using is this. Up until this point I used a mountain sop with colour attribute and a vop sop to give it a bit more detail. Doesn't look very good though. Question is, would anyone have suggestions on how to approach making it? a thank you in advance!
  4. Greetings! So, my question sounds like this: "How to obtain light passes(direct&indirect irradiance) in Mantra PBR?". I'm trying to do this a lot of time, so I think that I'm doing something wrong way. Direct Irradiance(raw light?) - just direct grayscale light pass from light source like point, area or sun light. Indirect Irradiance(maybe you can call it bounce light) - non-grayscale pass from environment or sky light. So, it must be light pass from environmental source. So, basically I need "Direct Illumination" and "Indirect Illumination" in Maya terminology. I'm new in Houdini shading and rendering. Could you please help me with my question? Can you explain me step-by-step, how I should choose type of light, configure them, how I should configure Mantra(PBR) render node and maybe shader? I tried to dive inside Mantra Surface material, but I have got some fake results. [ADD] Maybe I can make direct light pass that way: [direct_diffuse] - [direct_color_noshading] ? Will try it now. [LATER] Nope, it doesn't work. [ADD] Example would be great, but I will appreciate all helpful information and every answer. [ADD] All of this should be done in one render. Saved to EXR file as layers. Would be well appreciate. Thanks for your attention. Yours respecfully, Paul. P.S. picture example from some Maya video, not mine.
