Houdini Spider Effect Tutorial

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I have a problem with Houdini  FX 
If you take a look at this video tutorial:
http://cgterminal.com/2016/01/27/houdini-after-effects-liquid-spider-effect-tutorial/

There if you move to time 02:50 he cre4ates  Line (named as "line1" in video) and he changes Lenght to 7 and Points to 25
I did the same thing but i do not get and see the points that he created. (Points on the line)
Do you know what is wrong with my setup?
Added also project file.

you need to display the points?? .... that is why you aren't seeing the points 

I guess that is what you are asking

Hello, 

It is me again :)

I have fiew questions regarding this project / tutorial.

I added my project file here. 
I am using Ocean surface because i get interesting effect when i use light in scene 
First question: 
How to mage effect to grow from 0 to x number.
For example: At start of frame there is sphere only and then it sarts to get to get those wiery things more and more and they get frame by frame bigger.

Second question:
As you see i use there geolight, and this is because i like the effect that i get from interaction light + ocean surface
and i created copy of main object and then reduced it size in scale a bit and turned that in to Geometry light
that will give me a bit red in the main object

And here is a question. How to change that golor to something else then red. 

Hint! 
1.) Select first object and create copy of that 
2.) Reduce the copy object size a bit in scale
3.) Turn copy object in to Geometry light
Now what you end up is having same object with same animation but as light inside of main object.
And my issue here is that no mater where i change the light color it remains RED but i want it to turn some other color. How to do that?
