I'm trying to do a PBD sim of a character who's body turns into sand over time. My problem is that I'd like the sand as it falls to collide with the moving body but obviously the parts of his body that have turned into sand should no longer be collided with as they are no longer there. This poses a big problem that I have not found a solution for.
How do you have a collision object that's topology is changing over time? Houdini cannot interpolate between frames where the point count/order changes which makes complete sense but what is the alternative? Can anyone offer a solution or alternative approach for me?
In the attached file you can see the spread (in red) where the character is turning into sand. The parts that are not red need to remain as collisions.
Thanks so much!
