crowd tutorial

Recommended Posts

Hello folks,

I just made public a crowd tutorial. Some of you might remember my attempt at a otl/tutorial marketplace called vfxtoolbox, where I was initially selling it. It is now free to watch, on Everytime: https://www.everytim...rojects/588-VFX

Everytime is a another web app I built, that allows people to bookmark any moments in any media. So in this case, it is very useful to add chapters to videos I have imported from vimeo. That allows you to jump to a specific moment of the tutorial easily. For instance, this points to a moment where I demonstrate some CHOP filtering: https://www.everytim...of-clip-changes

Using those chapters should make things easier for viewers, so they can watch the tutorial bit by bit, or even comment on each section, in order to ask questions or share opinions.

This tutorial was made using houdini version 10, but it still is completely usable and contains quite a few tricks during its ~4h, so I hope you ll enjoy it. It comes with a few otls, which I give the links to in the comments here: https://www.everytim...09-final-render

This is great, thank you very much. I've just watched the first 3 parts and they are very informative

I especially like the way you explain how to problem solve.

Best regards

Thanks Juan and Nomad.

Yes, I really try and explain my choices, or why I decide to solve the problem in a certain way. Sometimes there are so many possible solutions, it is always good to step back and evaluate them a bit before rushing into one. Very glad you liked it so far. Feel free to let me know what you think once you've seen it all :)

Hi Oscar, I can't unfortunately try it here, as I dont have Houdini on my current setup. But all the attributeDisplay otl does is transferring the attribute onto color or normal, in VOP. So that should be easy to reproduce.

Hi Guillaume,

Thanks for the great tutorial. I'm still looking at some of the impressive things in your videos. I sometimes had issue with your chapter system on vimeo which, when changing chapters, disables the sound. Once the sounds gets lots it's hard to get it back as reloading the page doesn't fix the issue, I usually have to delete the cache and quit the browser. I tried both with Firefox and Chrome and had the same issue.

Bruno, that's very strange. Everytime does not touch the sound, so I am surprised you see this happening. Thanks for figuring out a work around anyway. Can you let me know which os you are using?

I appologise for digging up a old thread. I was looking up Houdini crowd simulations and came upon this little gem.

What an excellent tutorial! Its loaded with information and general Houdini knowledge, and easily one of the best I ever watched. Many thanks for this.
