  1. Hi I am a 3D environment student here I have a problem making that mountain I attached... I am planning to create a rocky bumpy mountain first for the base and then add moss parts and lastly add the ground. So far, I created a base mountain and it's not pretty as well but it is fine, the problem is the moss part.. I tried to scatter sphere and convert VDB, but that seems like more snow and flat ( I explained the pic attached ) Also, I merged HF projected with blur mountain it also very weird.. Is there any good way to get that result? (edited) Or am I doing a good way?...!
  2. I'm following this tutorial by Entagma, which involves using an attribute noise set to periodic flow to create a tiling pattern. The settings he uses are shown at 5:20 in the video, and the resulting geo can be seen at 11:25. However, Houdini 18.5 no longer includes periodic flow noise. I've noticed that it is included in the mountain SOP now, but even when I match his settings exactly, my results look bizarre and inorganic: In the documentation for the mountain node, this is the image associated with Periodic Flow Noise, but I can't get mine to look anything like that. https://www.sidefx.com/docs/houdini/nodes/sop/mountain.html (and here's the web page that includes a little description). Does anyone know what I could be doing wrong? How can I make my noise look more like that from the Entagma video or the documentation? Thanks very much in advance!
  3. Anyone know how to do this ?
  4. Dynamically Modify Geometry

    I take a sphere and then apply the mountain SOP to this sphere. Then I add a Copy node which is fed a point cloud from a sphere, IsoOfset, and scatter combination. Below the Copy I place a NULL node. In this Null Node I can see the total number of packed Primitives. What I would like to do is to be able to modify the Frequency Parameter on the Mountain Sop for each of the Primitives that are being Copied so that each one of the Primitives has a unique shape. I need a variety of moon rock to blast out. Without modifying them, they all look the same. Any thoughts on how I can accomplish the ability to dynamically create rocks of various shapes. Thanks in advance.
  5. Mountain Fractals

    Hey Guys, I finished this project a while back. I included it in my showreel just before the FMX. If you want to see breakdowns of the scene, it's in my showreel. I also show the diversity of the shader used. The Breakdown starts at 00:40. In the bottom video you can see the WIP too. Everything but comp is Houdini. Mountain range is completely procedural. The Shader is procedural, snow amount is slope and height dependent mixed in with noise, you can determine the snow / rock bias too. The rocks under the snow is in the same shader and is controllable by reflection and displacement amount. There are three smoke sims on the left, top and right of the shot. The top one is a clustered pyro sim. In the top sim I used the velocity field to advect some particles for the snow effect. In the background the clouds are VEX Volume procedurally generated.
