Re: Houdini RF mesh export SOP

I wish it were true ChristianZ :) Lightwave has the most basic of Alembic import. It does not support changing topology, similar to MDD format....supports deformations but that's it, so any splashes that tear away ect are a no go.....a bouncing rubber ball would work as long as all the polys kept th...

Houdini RF mesh export SOP

I am trying to import Houdini generated fluid meshes into Lightwave... The best method I can tell is the Realflow plugins (LW does not accept the generated alembic files) What I have tried so far, is creating a RF Mesh Exporter ROP....and pointing to the particle fluid surface SOP node. Inside the p...

possible to interact an object with Hybrido OSS displacement

I hit a wall with realwave and a stormy ocean simulation....lot of high frequency noise around the boat Now I am trying to recreate the scene using Hybrido and applying an OSS displacement to it. As far as I know the OSS displacement just effects the mesh and not the actual sim....i.e. a boat would ...

Re: SPH particle scene growing even with emitter turned off

that was definitely it..the sheeter at least doubled the particles

without it, I get a lot of mesh tearing....I seem to need anisotropic meshing to retain my logo shape
have to see if I can figure out how to animate the sheeter

SPH particle scene growing even with emitter turned off

I have a scene with a SPH emitter filling a logo with a big splash and then the logo rising into the air a bit. I have 1 rectangle emitter, and a kill deamon, and a sheeter My emitter stops at frame 64, but the scene goes from about 380,000 to 425,000 particles by about frame 72. frame 72 .jpg Then ...

Best Practices for Liquid Logo

Just trying to do a liquid logo here....one that would fill the letters from an emitter above. I found I cant get a tight enough mesh using hybrido (still a newbie so could easily be missing something) with out an obscenely large scale scene.... so far it seems that regular particle fluids will conf...
