This was primarily a PDG/TOPs exercise to auto generate Shaderballs and Montages from lot of .hdr files with Redshift. This pack includes 24 pieces from Munich, Bavaria, Lanzarote & Tyrol. The HDRIs are in 12K, stiched with PTGUI and retouched with PS. Get Pack (Google Drive ~ 3.9 GB): ns_24.hdri_pack.zip
The main goal of this test was to ignite a fuel-field(paper) from a temperature emitting object(candle). I managed this with embedded fields. So i did this little paper-burn scenario, with a desintegration effect on top. For the desintegration effect i created two levels of clusters, which are released from the transfered heat field. The approach
Here are some kind of ideas for simplifying the texture handling from Substance Painter to Houdini. Therefor i use the gallery preset system and create a little prototype of script to add all baked maps from Substance Painter, with one click. This snippet is a bit low-end but i guess usefull for other automatism, as
Mandelbulb fractal visualization and variances. Little Math and VEX exercise.Kudos to Junichiro Horikawa and his channel, check it out and VEX-it yourself. Setup: Here some testing to solve the equation just in camera space, to scale the pointcounts. Phase shifting: For a phase shift, just add a “phaseShift” variable for the vector components. 2 *
Did this for a while in Softimage with ICE, you can check it out here. In short: Rays are shooting and bouncing around (same input/ouput angle).
Testing and messing around with some volumes, vectorfields and DOPs. Done in Houdini with Redshift. Overview. Main Setup: Using an animated curve. I used velocity from particles to fill the volumes. I created a main “Vortex Particle” sim and a wide area sim and mix them together before sourcing. I also split up the ground
This visual test has two “main” procedual effects, the sin-deformer and the growing pattern. Done with Houdini, Redshift and Fusion. Scene: Deforming & Growing Setup Overview: The deforming VOP-SOP: The growing Part: volume & top-layer The point-wrangle SOP, polylines are rendered as strands in Redshift (Strip) 9 million points defining the polyline positions. Placed with
A little Python/PyQT script that gather & copy Texture(s) from your Softimage/XSI scene to specific folder. some notes for ns_Gather Textures Version 0.1: -supports Sources in Materials, Sources in TextureMaps-Properties & Sources in Lightshader (Sources on Camerashaders, Volumeshaders, Environmentshader & Rotoscopes will follow) -supports Texture Sequences with any kind of Padding -supports UDIM Sequences in .1001.
ns_Version is a python script that allows you to versioning your scene related data. That includes the XSI scene itself, renderpictures, captures & ICE caches. You can organize it with a bunch of subfolder possibilities which placed it in the common XSI scenefolder structure. There are also some handy tools/scripts included. ns_Version v0.52 :
