  1. FBX to UE4 no animation data

    Hello! I am trying to import a cached rbd sim to UE4 as an animated fbx, but when I import it to UE4 it says the fbx "has no animation data". When importing to unreal, it does detect the start and end frames correctly (and auto selects skeleton mesh as it should) and create an animation asset but it does not play the animation, only the first frame. I am using Houdini 17.5 and Unreal 4.22 I have attached a simple example file, I am using the gamedev tool rbd to fbx in the out context to write out the fbx Not entirely sure if the issue is on the Houdini side or the Unreal side, any help would be appreciated! fbxtest.hiplc
  2. Hello, I'm trying to duplicate objects (spirals) along a curve. I created two for-each cycles: 1- to move objects along curve 2- to duplicate object parameters. The first cycle is correct, but the second cycle does not work properly. I can't understand how to give the possibility to modify the individual parameters of the spirals (radius, loop, height, etc.) for each object created. Can someone help me? In the Edit Operator Type Properties I added a Multiparam Block (list) with: Position on curve (for first for-each) and Height (for second for-each).At the moment when I add for example two spirals only a heigh value works, modifying both spirals and not the specific one.

  3. Hey guys! I've made a fairly simple destruction on a procedural building (not textured) in Houdini, I'm going to convert it for Unreal Engine 4 using the game dev tools - I've tested this before and it works fine. What I'm not sure of is the best way to go about the texturing process from here. Presumably I need to set up my UVs in Houdini to start, then I'm not sure if you take the asset into UE4 first or whether you can work with the baked Houdini asset inside Substance Designer/Painter? Of course I might be missing the obvious solution so I'm looking for advice really!
  4. Hi guys, I am working with the Houdini Engine in Unreal and it's a blast - the automation is really great … but I have massive problems with my masks for the landscape material so I decided to post this in the general section, because my problem is Houdini 'internal' based. I created a material attribute and Unreal get's the information from Houdini where to weight the landscape materials. This works pretty flawless, excpect that's the values are ‘wrong’. When I use these masks it happens almost everytime, thats the mask is not solid and we can see both textures. For example the whole landscape has a solid basecolor and I add a grass mask on top of it (genereated by slump and renamed after). The problem is, that the mask is almost in the middle grey-area and the grass get tinted by the underlaying rock material. The solution whould be, setting the mask to 1 with feathering edges. But how? The question is, how can I change the range of the masks in Houdini to the range I want to (0-1)? Houdinis masks are not fixed, they float here and there and I can't figure out a solution for this. I tried to use a VolumeVOP, sample the mask and run it through a power node with a clamp at the end … but somehow the values in unreal are others (the edges are now sharper), but still somewhere around 0.5 - 0.7. Thanks for your help!
  5. I made a tool for creating fully procedural cave systems from curves for use inside UE4 with Houdini Engine. Check it out, let me know what you think. Available here: https://gum.co/hdacaves Enjoy!
  6. Unreal Engine Artists - TRIXTER Berlin

    TRIXTER Berlin is currently looking to hire experienced Unreal Engine Artists. Booking time: ASAP - end of September Location: Trixter Berlin Description: The product we're creating is not a game - we are creating fictional in-game scenes for a live-action film, and we are using Unreal as the Game-Engine. The shots created will not require live-rendering. We are not striving for Photo-Realism – the look of the shots will be comparable to late PS3-generation games, or early PS4-generation games. Responsibilities: Importing rigged and animated characters from Maya into an existing Game world running in Unreal Engine. Staging the characters and placing cameras. Optimizing the shots within the context of a given scene. Tweaking textures/materials and the existing lighting. Minor simulations. Exporting the shots as image sequences. Comfortable in working with deadlines. Ability to work in a collaborative environment. Requirements: Excellent knowledge of Unreal Engine and Maya. Knowledge of CG and Game industry is a major plus. Self-driven, good communicator, and a great-team player. Excellent organizational and communication skills Ability to perform multiple tasks, set priorities and problem solving Able to organise own workflow in a meticulous manner. Good communication, organizational, time management and interpersonal skills. German and English language skills. Valid EU-working permit. If your experience matches above description, we are looking forward to hearing from you! Please send your CV, demo reel and earliest commencement date by email to jobs@trixter.de.

  8. Hello everyone! Our new GridMarkets Featured Houdini Artist is Varomix from Mexico. Don't miss his detailed video tutorial on how to create an asset in Houdini for use in Unreal Engine. We also added an interview with Varomix, where he shares his thoughts on how he uses Houdini. Enjoy, Patricia and the GridMarkets team
  9. Hey there! I recently gave a talk to the Vancouver Houdini User Group about how Houdini can be used for making visual effects for games. It was a reasonably short lecture (~45 minutes) so I decided to record it afterward and comment the Houdini file a little so I could share it online. The lecture is targeted at film people who would like to transition into games but aren't sure how to get started. It's not a step-by-step on creating fluids or any nonsense like that, but rather a look at some of the ways you might optimize an effect for real time. If you're not familiar with who I am, I've written a little about how I got into games over on my blog: http://www.allegrodigital.com/?p=1991 Or you can go straight to the lecture which is free, and hosted on Udemy: https://www.udemy.com/game-effects-using-houdini-ue4 Hope it's of use to someone!
