Looking at the presentation I will definitively give a try to your tools.
Thank you to share this.

Thanks guys:) There have been quite a few improvements since the HUG Munich Presentation. Be sure to get the latest version (see the github repository for the latest updates, just fixed a bug in the force field a couple of minutes ago ;) )

Hey guys,

just a quick update on the tools:

  • All Houdini Assets now have complete Houdini native documentation available.
  • LYNX_fabric has a new LYNX_fabric_color node to control the color/Alpha/width attributes in a layered based fashion. LYNX_fabric_resample (LYNX_fabric_thread uses this heavily) is up to 5 times faster & LYNX_fabric_weave up to 2 times :) 
  • Full install instructions are now available on GitHub . The download is now also only via Github and not via my website anymore.
  • Various bug fixes & performance improvements on LYNX_force_general, LYNX_fabric, LYNX_velocity.

Hey everyone,

for all the German speaking peeps out there:

LYNX Tools are featured in 2020/01 issue of the “Digital Production” magazine. The article covers the basics on getting you started as well diving into advanced use cases and tips & tricks. I also had the honor of supplying the official cover. The scene was setup using only the LYNX fabric tools in Houdini and rendered in Mantra. The scene file is available for free in the GitHub Repository. So now anyone can design an ugly Christmas Sweater;) Looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with, enjoy!

Update: LYNX tools are now easier to install via the new LYNX Update Manager, available on all platforms. See the updated GitHub (https://github.com/LucaScheller/VFX-LYNX) installation instructions for more information.
