I see that the current 3DWorld mag (#89) has a special on fur - I guess inspired by that conference (?). Our beloved mandrel takes front cover, and Framestore is mentioned... so I guess Andy is sharing some of his wisdom, perhaps.

Fur real

22 pages of techniques and tips for modelling, rendering and animating realistic animals, including:

Framestore-CFC has a page on the commercial which our beloved Mandril appeared: http://www.framestore-cfc.com/commercials/...wild/index.html

In the above page, there is a section about creating the fur. The setup is done in Houdini but rendered with Renderman.

Cheers!

There is also a completely Houdini based project completed by Calin on pages 46/47. This shows the fur workflow in Houdini that is a protoinstall in H8 and will be a feature in H9.

yeah i remember that one. Framestore said that they would provide a samle file of what they did on the tv spot, so i was wondering if it was setup any different than that sample file.

thanks for you help though,

Lucky to have people like you showing us what houdini can do.

I've just seen this. It's a great looking advert for H9. Nice to see this sort of stuff (Houdini) appearing in a mainstream mag too (not that I'd know that it usually doesn't, as I don't buy any mags - but just guessing it doesn't). :)

Hey all!

I'm playing with fur for a bit and I'm wondering if you guys have the furdemo.zip file from the 3dworld site link above? I keep getting timeout errors. Thanks!
