Hi, I've been playing around with the demo crowd sim setup inside Houdini and wanted to setup my own based on this. I used MakeHuman and Mixamo and setup a character with animation. I got all the parts working but for some reason the animation on my character pops like the rig or cache is breaking. I've narrowed it down to being something about the retiming being done in the crowd sim but I have no idea what the actual problem is or how to fix it or even what to search for. Any ideas? Attaching my scene just in case. sim_test_v02.zip
squardis posted a topic in EffectsHi, I want to emit alot of coins which will be pushed outwards the earlier borned coins Like a growing stack of coins. What is a good way to do this? Cause What bullet now is doing is leaving all the intersecting geometry Alone (no popping)
Hi all. I've been learning much about smoke sims in the last few weeks. I have here a smoke test and I'd like to improve it. There's a number of issues going on here, but the first one I'd like to get to the bottom of is the way the smoke is popping (pops) into existence. In the clip below, the popping starts happening 3sec in, but you can particularly see it from 8secs onwards. Solid blocks of smoke appearing before they start dispersing - way too rapidly. So what's happening is that I have a large (110, 3, 60) voronoi fractured terrain that suddenly cracks all the way through the middle and then starting from the camera pieces start falling away. I'm using a 'delete' sop that's deleting geometry that isn't moving (v<0.9). So the blocks of smoke that suddenly appear are when the terrain pieces start falling fast enough to go into the smoke source. And the smoke sim is a cluster system with ten points. But it's too sudden and strong, how can I make them fade in? I'd appreciate it if anyone could give some input on this and on any of the other issues I'm seeing in this smoke test. (Other issues being the stair stepping in the close to camera smoke, and that the turbulence and dispersion? seems much too high. I'd like to slow the smoke down a lot.) 'cheers, Simeon
