  2. Hi everyone, I've been tasked to lay down a decent workflow pipeline plan for my team revolving around creating motion graphics or key visuals for advertising in houdini and I was hoping to find some help/suggestions for it. I chose houdini as the core element just to avoid extra plug-ins that from my experience were creating a wast amount of issues in the long run, but I feel I won't be able to do everything I need quick enough using it alone. My first idea was to get license for zbrush, substance and redshift to complement houdini, so basically it would be like this: start by modeling non procedural things in zbrush, texturing them in substance, animating everything in houdini and finally render in redshift. When I started testing the workflow, I immediately noticed that substance designer plugin is not compatible with latest versions of houdini and my biggest fear came back, since I was hopping to achieve something at least slightly more seamless. I am now considering making all maps and textures through photoshop and zbrush only, skipping substance altogether and sticking as much as possible to procedural shaders in houdini if I can produce them quick enough. Anyway, what kind of workflows do you guys have or recommend? Could you give me any tips on how I could make things go smoother and avoid unexpected compatibility issues? How was your experience using Substance painter or designer within the workflow so far? Cheers!

    I have downloaded and installed the Houdini_GoZ.otl. Export and Import in GoZ does not seem to work on the Mac. Has anyone had any success getting models to and from ZBrush on the Mac and can you provide me your workflow. I am using Houdini 16.5 and ZBrush 4 R8.
  5. Workflow for this sample mesh is as follows: Create dynamesh, subdivide to 2 mil points Apply variety of alphas to mesh ZRemesh to 8k poly, subdivide to 7 mil, project details Use UV Master Create vector displacement with attached settings, base mesh is around 100k What am I missing here? Was able to get blackpixel's example working just fine: https://www.sidefx.com/forum/topic/46764/#post-211000 [sidefx.com] Should I try Mudbox?
