FontSop geo - Houdini to Nuke issue

Recommended Posts

Guest tar

What's the best way to export FontSop geo into Nuke?  Currently there are 'bonus' faces and holes when viewing/rendering in Nuke.

 

Would test it in Maya but my machine is free of that right now ;) Also tested using the sort sop, no difference.

Very cool, thanks Mangi! That does work.

 

Next test was applying same thing to more characters, with more detail but it had the same original problem. I'm wondering what the size is doing to fix the issue and is there a forumla or nodes to use to fix it.

 

Edit: Looks like any 'holed' polygons aren't well supported in Nuke.

Try passing the font SOP through a divide SOP with sides=3. The font SOP can generate concave polygons with a ridiculous number of edges, so I wouldn't necessarily fault Nuke.

Cool, thanks! divide by 3 seems to bullet proof.  Very cool to know.

 

Interestingly, in Houdini, the PolyDoctorSop also destroys geo created with FontSop, it's seems to not like ill-formed, 5+ sided and non-convex parts of it. It even doesn't like the divided version! Tough doctor!!
