1. I’m looking for someone who can convert some OSL code to VEX code. I have a fractal formula written in OSL that needs to be volume density output VEX. For now the simple mandelbulb fractal conversion is enough but I'm looking for someone that could convert many other complex formulas.(200-300 lines of code). New to Houdini, and can't find a way to get this working...after days of looking around, this forum is my last option. OSL CODE TO CONVERT: shader OslGeometry( int Iterations = 10, float Power = 2.0, float Bailout = 20, output _sdf c = _SDFDEF) { vector pos = P; vector z = P; float dr = 1.0; float r = 0.0; for (int i = 0; i < Iterations ; i++) { r = length(z); if (r>Bailout) break; // convert to polar coordinates float theta = acos(z/r); float phi = atan2(z,z); dr = pow( r, Power-1.0)*Power*dr + 1.0; // scale and rotate the point float zr = pow( r,Power); theta = theta*Power; phi = phi*Power; // convert back to cartesian coordinates z = zr*vector(sin(theta)*cos(phi), sin(phi)*sin(theta), cos(theta)); z+=pos; } c.dist = 0.5*log(r)*r/dr; } OSL CODE THAT WORKS BUT NEED IT TO BE LIKE THE OSL: function int Mandel(float x0, y0, z0; int Iterations){ float x, y, z, xnew, ynew, znew, n=ch('n'), r, theta, phi; int i; x = x0; y = y0; z = z0; for(i=0; i < Iterations; i++){ r = sqrt(x*x + y*y + z*z); theta = atan2(sqrt(x*x + y*y) , z); phi = atan2(y,x); xnew = pow(r, n) * sin(theta*n) * cos(phi*n) + x0; ynew = pow(r, n) * sin(theta*n) * sin(phi*n) + y0; znew = pow(r, n) * cos(theta*n) + z0; if(xnew*xnew + ynew*ynew + znew*znew > 8){ return(i); } x = xnew; y = ynew; z = znew; } return(Iterations); } //--- Main --- int maxiter = 8; if(Mandel(@P.x, @P.y, @P.z, maxiter) < maxiter){ @density = 0.0; } else { @density = 1.0; } AAND MY CONVERSION THAT DOES NOT WORK function int Fractal(int Iterations, float Power, float Bailout, vector pos, vector z, float dr, float r){ for (int i = 0; i < Iterations ; i++) { r = length(z); if (r>Bailout) break; // convert to polar coordinates float theta = acos(z.z/r); float phi = atan2(z.y,z.x); dr = pow( r, Power-1.0)*Power*dr + 1.0; // scale and rotate the point float zr = pow( r,Power); theta = theta*Power; phi = phi*Power; // convert back to cartesian coordinates z = zr*vector(sin(theta)*cos(phi), sin(phi)*sin(theta), cos(theta)); z+=pos; } return 0.5*log(r)*r/dr; } int Iterations = 10; float Power = 2.0; float Bailout = 20; vector pos = @P; vector z = @P; float dr = 1.0; float r = 0.0; if(Fractal(Iterations,Power,Bailout,@P,@P,dr,r) < Iterations){ @density = 0.0; } else { @density = 1.0; } Thanks in advance.

2. Hi everyone! I was trying to see how OSL works in houdini, and there's pxrOSL and ris_oslShader in the RIS NET, and this is what I did for testing purpose, it doesn't seems to work. I did bind export in the ris_oslShader and exported a const color red, referenced it in PxrOSL and wired the result into pxrDisney, but the base color didn't change. Has anyone tried these nodes yet? Please advice, thanks a lot!!!
