Houdini New Position Based Dynamics Solver


Recommended Posts

I think is great to start having PBD in Houdini.

SideFX again ahead of anybody else.

But, personally, I don't like how is has been integrated in DOP POPs, it should be part of the POP solver.

And in general DOPs is slow for particles, which is going to be even worse with more complex constraints in PBD.

For me PBD is the future, I hope the implementation in Houdini will improve in next releases, for a first attempt is ok.
