  1. Hello. This is my reference. I want to create a saliva or slime effect using vellum. I tested it in two ways. But the first way the animation doesn't work in dopnet. The second method is that a single stem in the broken line is not affected by gravity. Attach the hip file here. Maybe it's a simple problem, but I don't know how to fix it... Please help me what is the problem. And please give me some advice on how to approach it similarly to that video. (Or, if you have related data, please share.) Thank you. vellum_test_help.hiplc
  2. Wire solver from moving lines

    Hi, I'm trying to figure out a saliva effect and am currently looking at the strands of saliva connecting the top and bottom of the gums and mouth of the creature tgats been animated and brough originally as an alembic (now cached to houdini geo) I've got points scattered correctly on deforming geomettry, then used point deform and add to connect the points, and have been following the entagma connect the yarns tutorial to resample the lines and set the mass for the connecting points to 0. However when I try to go to the next step using a POP network I can't figure out how to have the POP source update the lines and am only able to simulate movement if I create them on the first frame. Is there a mrelatively simple way I can get these lines and their anchor points into a DOP or POP network so I can simulate them to add some movement? I'm looking to mesh them and add then to some drool that im trying to put together using the condensation shelf tool. Any help is greatly appreciated EDIT: figured out the simulation using vellum thanks to Rohan Dalvi, although if anyone could give advice on how to mesh these look close to the strands in this video that would be amazing:
  3. Drooling Creature

    Hi there, I'm trying to use the condensation shelf tool to create a drooling saliva effect for a lizard. So far the results are... well, a little off: My main issue is that the rig isn't watertight and is composed of separate meshes that aren't closed and intersect, so the liquid is falling through the mesh although it does collide with it in some areas. I have the different components separated into groups: So my questions would be: 1. Any advice on how to make this mesh watertight for collisions 2. How to handle collisions from animated geomettry in the DOP network so that liquid doesnt explode everywhere and fall through its neck. 3. How to adjust the pop fluid settings to get long, thin strands of saliva I'll keep working on it and upload a hip file once I have done some more work. Still new to Houdini so any help or pointers are very much appreciated. Thanks, H
  4. Saliva Effect with wire solver

    Hi, I am trying to create some kind of saliva effect from a creature's roar when it opens its mouth, something like this. I researched for quite a bit and understood that this can be done with the wire solver. However, I'm getting stuck at getting the constraints to work!! I created a line and made it wire object. Then, I use glue-wire-to-animation from the shelf tab to constrain the line to my model. I want to constrain the 2 end points of the line to the animated object. I can see the constrain but it is not moving with the animation. I'm not sure what I did wrong and how to fix this. I don't really understand constraint network since it's my first time working with it. Can someone please help? How do I constrain my wire object to an animated object? I also thought of scattering points of my model and use the add node to first create the saliva. But what I don't understand is then how do I define so that the points on attach from top to bottom rather than left to right. Any advice on this? Here is a reference video. What I would like to achieve is something very similar to this at 0.09s. https://www.markinglevfx.com/projects/6477328. Here's another one but the description was too brief that I still don't understand how does it go from wire to pop for dynamic and meshing. Thanks, Eunice
  5. Saliva FX

    Good evening my fellow Houdini magicians. I have been trying the last couple of nights to create a Saliva Fx for a dragon roar but my brain is completely drawing a blank... So I figured I would try my luck here and see if someone is up for the challenge. any amount of help is appreciated to get me started. I have tested a few things, but I was not happy at all with any of it, so I am leaving a clean canvas here and hoping someone has a good approach to this that can get me going. in my head the saliva would be sticking to the teeth and then slowly get pealed off as the dragon roars, HOWEVER I am not married to a certain look of the FX, I just want to learn how to do a cool saliva FX. I have attached a clean scene file to start from and also the .bgeo sequence in case you cannot see the geometry in the scene from the locked node. Thank you in advance for all your help. Cheers. dragon_head.hiplc Dragon_head.rar
  6. These are some basic ideas that I used when creating the Saliva for movies like Hellboy (2019) and Manikarnika: Queen of Jhansi (2019). The main goal was to be able to Art Direct everything anytime as there were over 14 shots where the Supervisor and Director had very specific notes.
