Hello, I'm currently pulling to hair out trying to figure this issue out but what I had a problem with is assigning a Redshift material to particles in my scene... So I have set up a particle dust burst based of an Entagma tutorial and now that I have one I need to create some duplicates of that burst. I have simplified the hip file attached but my little animation has three dust bursts obj merged together so that I can then feed them into a popnet with a vortex so they all swirl up together after they have done their little burst thing. I got that all working so far but when I go to attached RS materials to each separate burst I can't do it. I can assign a material at the obj level and it works fine, the colour changes for all of them *hurray!* but I need each dust burst within the obj geo node to have a different colour. Soooo I dive inside add a material node but the particles render white and seemingly just fail to see the material node. I have tried adding group assignments to the tree above the mat node and then using them to drive the mat assignment but it doesn't work. I've tried attribute create and attribute promote and they don't seem to help. So it seems that I can only assign a material at the top obj level and not within a geo node, but that has to be a bug right ? or what am i doing wrong? I hope I am explaining that alright and I appreciate the help in advance ! Dust_Material_Problem_v001.hip
Ronald Ruiz posted a topic in EffectsHi! This is what I did: I made a cool sim with wires and constraints, it works all fine but I decided that I wanted those colored polylines that are drawn by the sim for the constraints. So I created another geo node and object merged the "Visualization" geo from the Constraints Network, It worked! but with a little problem, If I scrub through the animation timeline sometimes I get the "static" state of the constraints, this can be solved If I just scrub a little more near the frame that has the problem, sadly it happens again in another frame (randomly) I guess that my trick is a little dirty and Houdini doesn't like it. Is there anyway I can import this visualization geo as seen inside the DOP Network? Here is my file, It's a little messy (weird experimentation) so sorry for that. Just Press Play and you should see the problem. DynamicWireConstraints_personal.hipnc Houdini 16.5 NC
hey, the question is what the topic says. this bugs me since I have started using Houdini. so far nobody was able to show me that it is possible or tell me that it is not, for sure. So is it possible to object merge instance object? I know some workarounds but I'm curious if I can do this. thanks for the help! D.
DASD posted a topic in General Houdini QuestionsFor purposes of organisation, rigging and usability I want to import geometry from the connected input of an object node (that is form the parent object level node). For this purpose I use an object_merge node and I want to script the path in "Object n". In the python shell hou.node('..').inputs().path() + "/" gives me the path I need. But it does not work when I put it in the "Object n" slot and set the node scripting language to python. I tried to put the code in backticks, but that hasn't worked either. I am thankful for all advice.^^
