  1. Procedural Modeling in Houdini

    procedural modeling.mp4 In this tutorial you will learn the procedural modeling from fundamentals to advanced level. Houdini Tutorial Procedural Modeling [escalator] Gumroad: https://gumroad.com/l/ProceduralModeling Artstation: https://www.artstation.com/a/10610308 In the first part we will start to create the escalator elements and gradually we will move to more advanced procedural modeling techniques. In this part you will also study: How to create vertex mask in Houdini for UE4 materials. How to add rig and export animated steps. How to add collision, and assign UE4 materials. In the second part you will study more advanced techniques of procedural modeling, tools development (1_Group Select, 2_ProceduralBox With Cables) and procedural uv creation.

  8. Hello and Welcome to HossamFX.org : Description : Hello everyone. and welcome to this course procedural City Vol 1 building generator . One year ago I received an email from one of my customers. He asked me To record a tutorial about procedural City in HoudiniFX and I did it In this course you will see with me how I can convert those boxes to this nice building Just buy one click. step-by-step I will start with you on this journey to see how we can create a smart system in Houdini FX. This system can decide where to add a window, where to add a balcony , how to create procedural UV, and How to use the imported materials from Quixel megascans , manipulate and modify it. Using this tool you can generate an infinite number of buildings. I will use those buildings in vol 2 to create a beautiful city. I will show you how to create every tiny detail you see in this building from scratch !!! I will stay away from complexity and the use of code . In addition to procedural modeling skills, this course will give you a broad idea of creating procedural UV’s and manipulating textures . Creating a PDG network is on our list in this course and the final render will be explored in Mantra & RedShift. Now I'll let you watch this presentation of the final result of testing this system to randomly generate 50 different buildings !!! Notice : Watermarked Tutorial, link to download will be sent AFTER 72 hours as maximum thank you !!! Course Link : https://www.hossamfx.org/procedural-building-generator Kind Regards !!!

  9. Hello odforce, first post on here. I'm an Houdini noob/rookie and I am trying to follow this tutorial from SideFX regarding OSM. The point of this project is to create a procedural city using the Labs nodes and Open Street Map however I can't seem to generate buildings without them having holes/gaps when I try to generate fbx files for the Corners and Ledges. The first image is with trims and corners, and the second image is with walls only which results in no gaps/holes. From my understanding it seems that the problem lies in the labs nodes and might be some sort of "bug". It might be worth noting that the modules/objects used for the houses are from said tutorial and that, yes I've fixed the Centroid on all the modules as well. Here is my file: OSM_city_1.hipnc Here are the files i used for this project: city.zip Here are examples of my issue Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  12. Houdini Villiaumite Crystal Tutorial

    Let's talk about minerals and crystals In this video I'm gonna talk about doing some simple modeling, shattering and fracturing the crystals, we're also going to take a look at rendering and generation some procedural materials. It's a long video but it might be helpful especially if you are new to Houdini. Also, you can find a lot of great websites for finding reference images for minerals. I mostly use these two. https://www.mindat.org/ https://www.minerals.net/ You can find the tutorial on my youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/simpleandprocedural I've also included the hip file and here's a download link: https://microverse.art/?smd_process_download=1&download_id=2678

  17. Hi! I have been following this tutorial at school: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LdVZzNqYgw however I seem to get stuck around the the 25:15 part of the video. When I try to change the box size my painting disappears. I have attached the .hip file if anyone would consider helping me. Would be really grateful! paintingsinmotion.zip

  19. In this tutorial we will create a cold explosion with you procedurally using houdini and add details such as cold smoke particles and ice pieces. And then we render everything
  20. Hey! It's my first post here on the forum, I'm trying to learn houdini and my problem might sound easy to you but I can't get my hand on the solution. I want to replicate the effect in this video (Blender Tutorial) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcjrD5SwQBw I managed to get a simplified similar effect but i'd like to have different textures on each UV projected sides of the scales. How can I make this? I was thinking with the timeshift and project the first and the last frame but I'm not sure how to do it... Also It would be nice to have a falloff on the influence of the point to VOP "look at" orientation if someones knows how I could do it. Thanks a lot! scales.hip
  21. Scene file for this tutorial?

    Anyone know if there is a scene file of this available somewhere? I'm trying to recreate but he skips over so many nodes its hard to guess what he did.
