  1. Modeler 2022 Sneak Peek!

  2. Thanks for reading. I'm now creating creature hair & far grooms in houdini with tutorial. But, I have the problem I have not solved yet. About guidetransfer node in geometory, in this tutorial,when I create this node (photo 1), this error happened. But, I don't know where should I check and solve. Could you please help me with this problems? capture.mov
  3. Hello guys, I hope my drawing is helpful. I would like to create some sort of membrane/wing. I have an animated plant geometry (represented by the cube) and I would like to create wings on each side. I thought of starting by creating a curve and meshing what is in between that curve and the collision surface but I don’t know how to make it work. Any clues? Thanks
  4. Thanks for reading. I'm now creating creature hair & far grooms in houdini with tutorial. But, I have 2 problems I have not solved yet. First, about guide groom node in geometory, in this tutorial, my guide groom node looks like different from tutorial. I have done by following steps it, so I don't know why... Second, I want to convey information ( cheek Hair ) from guidegroom1 to hairgen1, but I could’t do that.... Actually I want to do that like second movie. inmycase.MOV tutorial.MOV You must be very busy, but it would be great if you could let me know your thoughts on the 2 questiions. Thank you. Ryu

  7. Hi everyone, Anyone knows how I could get the world position of the tip of a bend deformer handle? (see image)
  8. Hard Surface Design

    Hi peoples, hope u have a nice time. I want to achieve a concave geo look. The example shows that kind of look i want to model. Im thinking about how this was done. I tried almost every technic i can imagine but dont get it right.. I thought of it like this In my imagination it could be made like this: scatter points on only one side, copy geo to it and subtract with boolean... but the scattered geo has to look different and stuff, i mean... how do i achieve a procedural system where i can choose the length, the count and the size between the scattered objects making these lines over the body? If there are any ideas around pls let me know. :/ The presentation can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0B4KKTdsdQ&t=827s&ab_channel=Houdini
  9. Hi guys, I'd like to add surface to the sides of these two curves, but I can't quite get it to work. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. untitled.hip
  10. Hi everyone, I'm currently working on a material who mixes 2 shaders and I'm facing a stange issue. How to layering 2 shaders using a map in houdini ? I tried using the layermix and it works but only using a noise as alpha (pluged in alpha) But when i'm trying to use a map there is only the shader 2 who is render the map I want to use is a .pic sequence has alpha and using as mask for wetmap. Does anyone know the right way to use a map as mask for shaders ? maybe I'm not using the layermix correcltly or maybe using a texture node plugged in alpha is not the good way to do it..I don't know. There is not much information about the layermix in Houdini Help... Thans for your help !
  11. Hi guys, I'm currently finding a way to create an illumination light with cable on a tree in procedural. My personal goal is to make like the pictures that I attached here. Does anyone have a great idea? Especially, I would like to figure out how to create the spiral curve along with a tree shape. Thanks!
  12. Hello and Welcome to HossamFX.org : Description : Hello everyone. and welcome to this course procedural City Vol 1 building generator . One year ago I received an email from one of my customers. He asked me To record a tutorial about procedural City in HoudiniFX and I did it In this course you will see with me how I can convert those boxes to this nice building Just buy one click. step-by-step I will start with you on this journey to see how we can create a smart system in Houdini FX. This system can decide where to add a window, where to add a balcony , how to create procedural UV, and How to use the imported materials from Quixel megascans , manipulate and modify it. Using this tool you can generate an infinite number of buildings. I will use those buildings in vol 2 to create a beautiful city. I will show you how to create every tiny detail you see in this building from scratch !!! I will stay away from complexity and the use of code . In addition to procedural modeling skills, this course will give you a broad idea of creating procedural UV’s and manipulating textures . Creating a PDG network is on our list in this course and the final render will be explored in Mantra & RedShift. Now I'll let you watch this presentation of the final result of testing this system to randomly generate 50 different buildings !!! Notice : Watermarked Tutorial, link to download will be sent AFTER 72 hours as maximum thank you !!! Course Link : https://www.hossamfx.org/procedural-building-generator Kind Regards !!!

  15. Hi there, I'm going through a somewhat simple exercise in Houdini where I'm using a primitive, sphere in this case, to control the extrusion of a grid through the zscale attribute. However, after achieving the extrusion effect I would like to animate each extruded face randomly in the Y axis. Kinda slow up and down animation on each extruded face. I thought about using the for-each number loop sop but I'm having a hard time achieving the "animated random extrusion in Y effect on each face". How could I go about this in Houdini? I also tried using the primitive vop sop to add a noise to the zscale attribute but by doing that the extrusion becomes exponential and the faces get extruded to the infinite once the animation is running. My idea is to have the faces moving up and down within the area where the faces are extruded. I'm attaching an image of where I have landed so far and also the file. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Random_Y_Extrusion.hip
  16. I have selected the first points of some lines scattered around a tube like shape. I get what is on the image. I'd like to convert this into a polygon. You will tell me to just get the shape I used to scatter the line around, but to make it short, this is animated and the original tube shape doesn't move the same as the one you see in the picture (this comes out of a vellum solver) Hope I am clear. I could for example use a VDB from particles, but is there a node to just link all the points into a surface. A bit like a skin sop. Cheers

  18. Hi guys/girls, so I built this voronoi scale set-up for a mesh (see attached file) and would like to transfer uvs from the original base mesh to the scales, I've tried several different look-up methods but nothing has worked thus far. I managed to bother Jonah Friedman on linkedIn who did a similar set-up on a chameleon spot for psyop (see video link attached below) and he said that he'd done that in fabric engine and to copy the uvs from the original mesh he did a closest point lookup, but sadly that has not worked thus far for me. The final model will be texture painted in substance painter. Any help from a some uv and texturing wizard would be much appreciated! OH, AND I THINK I HAD SET THE VIEWPORT STATE TO MANUAL REFRESH, JUST IN CASE SOMEONE DIDN'T REALIZE! TRIPS ME UP SOMETIMES. Psyop scale set-up voronoi_scales_RnD_06_odforce.hip

  22. Hello, I would like to get rid of these edges and keep the bigger rectangle. How can I do this? Thank you
  23. Sweep Control

    Happy Friday, I'm trying to re-create this work in Houdini... I was trying to achieve with a sweep and custom curve but wasn't able to get the variation like on the example attached. It just looked like a repeated pattern. Can anyone provide a push in the right direction. I'm sure it's a simple step Thanks,
  24. Hello everyone, I have a question about modeling the dry fruit. I manage to created the shape of normal fruit but cant figure how to create the dry version Does anyone have any idea to create this kind of shape? I'm pleasure to hear your suggestion And also what kind of attribute to can create such gradient in the flower photo? Thank your for your time Ask_Fruit.hip
  25. Hello guys. I'm a newbie of Houdini. I'm trying to make a procedural random cable node. Currently, I'm struggling to distribute geometry along curves that I created by findshortestpath. Roughly speaking, I have two problems. 1) I can't get proper normal direction on the curve. So It would be great If I get the same normal direction as my base geometry somehow and copy my geometry along the curve. 2) would it be possible to control the number of distributing quantities? I attached my screenshot in this post. Thank you!
