  1. 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!
  2. 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 !!!

  5. 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
  6. 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

  8. 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

  12. Hello, I would like to get rid of these edges and keep the bigger rectangle. How can I do this? Thank you
  13. 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,
  14. 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
  15. 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!
  16. Hi everyone, I have a plant (leaf and stem) merged as one piece of geo with some dynamic animation. I'd like to animate the leaf separately and still be able to keep the current animation. Is there anyway you guys can think of that I could do this in a procedural way? any suggestions would be much appreciated. Even if you have suggestion on how I could do it differently from scratch that would be appreciated too. See attached file. Thanks in advance. philodendron_model_03_for_forum.hip
  17. How would you go about creating this accordion cone-like shape? I started with a cone obviously and tried the planar pleat but without success. Without using vex preferably. Any clues, direction or node I could try? Tx a lot
  18. Hello guys, I feel this has been asked probably a thousand times, but I can't really find a simple answer. I have projected this curve onto this surface with a Ray sop. I basically want to divide my geometry into two islands with this curve and delete the bottom part. Any ideas? Thanks a lot
  19. My first post - YES! What would be the best way to use "copy to points" (or SOP / VEX alternative) that will copy random sized boxes (i.e. shelf of books of various thickness or a black of attached homes) onto the curve but move/offset the position so that the objects do not overlap. I assume I would need to use a foreach statement to do the check but. I watched a couple of tutorials on how to create a bookshelf but they assume that all the books are the same size and fit within the resample space.
  20. [novice] Delete inner line

    Hello, I have nooq question I don't want to create lines in same object. So I know use the class to delete. But I don't know how to write it.. I attach my scene and screenshot below. Thank you Delete Inner Line.hipnc
  21. There are Erase c-plane elevation and Flip c-plane elevation options inside the Set Construction Plane menu. I suggested they allow changing an object's position along the c-plane z-axis. It sounds handy, but I can't figure out how exactly this works. Whatever I try nothing happens. How it works?
  22. Hi, I made a picket fence generator. I'm trying to create dynamic rails that will stretch from post to post based on a control curve. The length of the curve segment are in one loop, but I can't seem to get it to iterate properly. It only captures the last iteration and applies it to all. I'm using arclen for it. I've tried using details, but I'm definitely missing on how to integrate the two. I'm attaching the file, and a screenshot. Thanks for the help. curveLengthProblem.hipnc
  23. Hey guys ! I've been struggling for a while now on this guy... That's why I'm hopping finding a hero among all of you ! I want to model produrally this mushroom shape. I try different approaches, but so far nothing successfull. The thing Im struggling the most is to get those smaller leaves along those organics kinda veins... The overall veins structure and the small leaves are all connected. I join the hip file in the post So if any of you have some guidance feel free to share it proceduralMushroom_odforce_v1.hip
  24. I'm currently working on a procedural book model with controls to open/close it, flip through pages and whatnot. My issue is that I'm not sure how to bend the pages using MOPS. I'm really enjoying how easy they make any kind of transform operation relating to instancing of any kind, but I'm still learning how to make them deform geometry. I hope I don't have to switch to a Copy Stamp + Foreach Loop workflow, but if anyone has any feedback or thoughts, I'd love to hear them! I've attached a few renders and a video of my work in progress. D__Personal_Houdini_Book_0001.hiplc_-_Houdini_Indie_Limited-Commercial_18.0.532_2020-09-27_19-42-42.mp4
