BulletSOP 2.0.8

Recommended Posts

BulletSOP 2.0 - Introduction: https://vimeo.com/67030933

BulletSOP is implementation of Bullet library (bulletphysics.org) inside SideFx Houdini (sidefx.com). It's a plugin for creating incredibly large rigid body simulations on average PC.
At this moment it's single-thread application (we're waiting for official release of Bullet Library 3.0 with GPU support) but speed is very impressive already. As well as memory footprint. The plugin is free! So you can create truly stunning massive simulations.
It has 6 extraordinary nodes which are very powerful and universal. All data which these nodes generate can be modified with standard Houdini nodes.
This tool is compiled for Houdini production builds. It includes many example scenes (beginner -> professional) which are probably the best learning resources. Free video tutorials are coming soon!
Create freely, simulate quickly and enjoy fully!


Main features:
- Bullet RBD Solver
- Support for multiple Broadphases, Constraints Solvers
- Loading data from previous frame
- Geometry decomposition (Tetrahedra, Voxels)
- Static/Animation body
- Convex Hull
- Compound Hull
- Deform static Hull
- Primitive Hulls
- Constraints (auto-generating, spring, 6DoF)
- Collisions Groups
- Object Forces
- Point Radius Forces
- Delete Duplicity data
- Instancing
- Includes many example scenes for studying
- Support for Windows(64bit) and Linux(64bit)

thanks again, Milan!

Don´t you think it would be a good idea to include a version text file for us to know what´s new on each release?

This version doesn't include any new features. There are speed improvements, fixed bugs and few new scenes.

But yeaah, I can add some text file with list :)

Thank you so much Milan , you are a great guy

Thanks!

For upcoming 2.0.9 version, I changed force GUI(parameters), which is cleaner and more universal. I added really cool new example scene with magnets too.

There are few speed improvements and few new parameters, which speed up your work and let your network(s) cleaner.

Sorry for a delay with 2.0.9 version, but I have bad news. It probably takes one more week before public release :(
We are working on new feature - Emitting system(If some objects break, You can emit(particles, smokes, ...) from "share" polygons between objects :)

This is changes file for 2.0.9 at this moment:
* Changed: Force(s) GUI and attributes
* Added: Example Magnet scene
* Improved: updateConstraints()
* Added: "Static" parameter to btBuild RBDs tab
* Added: "Update every frame" parameter to btBuild RBDs tab
* Added: auto-update mass of compound object from child(s) mass
* Added: Example Voronoi compound(cluster) scene
* Added: New node "btExtraCells" which optimalize creating high&low poly pieces
* Fixed: Problem when Houdini cook SOP_Loader node more than one on same frame
* Fixed: Crash when Constraint includes "index of object" which doesn't exist
