  1. Hello all, I've been searching around for a while and I can't seem to find much on muscle simulation that doesn't already have a rig that was made in Houdini. The animation I have is from Maya, so I can bring in the cached and cleaned geo no problem. But I do need the rig to be able to attach muscles to the model to be able to move with it. It seems counter intuitive to bring in cached geo just to make a rig ontop of it, with the added problem of attaching it to the already moving skin. I might also not be looking at it properly, so it comes down to this; Does somebody have a good workflow for getting muscles to move with the cached geo in Houdini, or how to export an animated skeleton from Maya to Houdini? I'm properly confused, even documentation help would be good at this point, maybe a secret blog post somewhere
  2. Hello odforce Community. I experiment making rigging for game from Houdini to unreal. In the attached scene, if you tried to export it as a fbx's file to unreal, you can see skeleton move without drive the mesh, like the mesh haven't exported the weight map attribute correctly. Any idea what I'm doing wrong ? drone_t03_v001.hip
  3. Hello everyone! I can't align my capture posesin the edit / objects / capture pose mode, the wrong location is the capture pose. The tool align capture pose does not work. All capture regions are in their places. In 2nd screenshot, I display the capture regions of some bones, along which the align capture pose tool should align the capture pose. But this is not happening. Help, what could be the problem?

  5. Skin & Sort challenge/issue

    Hi folks, I face a challenge to setup my underlying curves to skin my in the correct way. The biggest issue I have is to sort all the points in the correct order - I think to do this via a helper curve should do the trick, but I can't find the solution So any help would be appreciated!!! The end result should look like a stadium roof... Thanks so much! Cheers Dominik
  6. Hello guys, how i can keep only rows after bool SOP. See image attach. Cheers!
  7. Letterpress

    Hi, here's my first project using Houdini. My goal was to get in touch with Houdini by transforming skin to metallic letters. I wouldn't have been able to realize this effect without your help here on the forum. Thanks a lot! dk
  8. Skin Editing

    Hey folks I'm investigating something that would help in my new venture of specializing on character work and I've realized that posing tools in Zb are not quite as good for me as I was hoping. So now I have the choice to scrape another layer off Softimage usage and possibly use Houdini for posing base meshes. So far I've not been able to find in Houdini the tool equivalents in XSI I regularly use and frankly couldn't do without. The main problem I'm facing is that I can't seem to figure out how to edit point weights, per bone, manually, aka numeric input. I've attached an image from XSI's skin editor where you'll see 4 points selected in viewport and one point to be edited in the editor with the bone1 as the influencing one also activated (bone1, bold text). Houdini Geometry Spreadsheet seems to only display those values, no editing. Am I missing something?
  9. H Modeling test

    Here is something I started in Houdni 13 and picked up again when H14 came out. I'm learning/exploring, so it is taking a bit of time to find a good workflow for modeling. H14 made that easier, and hopefuly it will improve some more.
  10. Santa & Klaus

    Dear odforce community, we (WE CAN DANCE Animation Studio) are working hard on our Christmas Animation Short for 2012 - "Santa & Klaus". After several years of half baked attempts this is the first time we really committed to producing a true character animation piece. Everything is being done in Houdini except for the animation which we unfortunately had to do in Maya due to the limited amount of Houdini Rigging and Animation Artists. We are however interested in developing a full Houdini Character Animation pipeline in the future if we are sure to have enough skilled artists at our disposal (feel free to contact us). With this animation piece we are venturing in several new areas that we haven't done before like skin shading and fur as well as the overall sheer amount of work that has to be done to finish something like this. I would like to use this thread for three things. First to show you regular updates on our progress. Second to get some feedback (which however might not be implemented as our deadline is rather tight but is definitely appreciated and discussed). And third to get technical help if we might get stuck in an area we aren't very experienced in yet. I will try to post updates and pictures as regularly as possible. Posts in this thread might be a little bit on the technical side while the artier (is this a word?) side can be seen at http://santa-und-klaus.tumblr.com We hope you find this thread interesting and entertaining. Best regards, WE CAN DANCE Animation Studio
