Houdini Snippet Vol.10 – ns_Cache


THE WEDGE STUFF IS DEPRECEATED SINCE SIDEFX LAUNCHES PDG Today a snippet of a HDA im using every time. Handles all my caching stuff and working in conjunktion with ns_Version. Usage Demo with a simple particle setup: 00:00 – 03:10 Basics, caching on Deadline03:10 – 04:48 Take/Wedge system Some specs:– Fast naming, organizing, copying for

Houdini Snippet Vol.9 – Mandelbulb


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 *

Porsche – 917


The legendary Porsche 917 – one of my favourite cars. First 24h Le Mans winning Porsche in 1970. Responsable for all tasks. Modeling/Shading and Rigging in Softimage. UVs in UVLayout, Textures in Substance Painter. Renderscene/Grassscatter/Platform in Houdini. Rendering with Redshift. Small CC and Comp in Fusion. Exhaust-Fire test with the Pyro-Solver: Some renders from shots

Houdini Snippet Vol.8 – Dustdevil


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

Houdini Snippet Vol.6 – Stone


Some testing with photogrammetry, particle, lines and volumes. Done with Houdini, Redshift and Fusion. Overview. This is a older Setup. You dont have to instancing particles in Redshift anymore. For a couple of month they implemented their own particle primitive. Photogrammetry done with Agisoft, Canon6D, 2xRemote Flashes + Softbox and a Bluescreen. Displacement-map generation and remeshing

Houdini Snippet Vol.6 – Dedorm & Grow


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

Dynamic Tree


This setup creates a procedual dynamic system for a given tree-mesh with Houdini and Speedtree. The cool thing about SpeedTree, besides the generator itself, is that you can export any kind of step from the l-system with the relevant curves inclusive. Starting point: Setting some attributes/ids/groups also the wire-constrains, cache it and throw it into

Houdini Snippet Vol.5 – Fluffy Clouds


The goal was to achieve a simple cloud setup with Houdini & Redshift, just with fractals and without simulations. To avoid one single huge VDB grid, i decided to pre-cache volume instances and scatter them back on geo. Down belowe i summarise some steps for my simple fluffy cloud setup. 1.Started with one single piece
