ragupasta VFX is a lot wider than simply “VFX means integrated CG in live action footage”. Visual effects reside in many mediums. Look at Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs. That is not a live action film, yet it is rammed full of visual effects (from what Ive seen on the trailer, not managed to see it yet ).
Wrong, Visual Effects are computer generated imagery that can be pass as a real action incorporated into live footage or totatly replaced.
Cloudy with a chance of meatballs is an animated movie, not a vfx movie.
Hi guys, i bought an HD license back in July/08, used it for a couple of months. Now i'm back on track but when i try to use the password that i used before, it says i don't have any licenses. Is my HD expired ?? can i use some version with that license ?? or it is totally gone ?? thanks for any help.
is there any command to see which gcc version you have on your distro ??
i´m on Fedora 7 now but planning to upgrade to Fedora 8 in a couple of days and just want to see if i have to change the version i´m using, probably i will instal the 64 bits version, thanks for the help.
thanks actor, i will look at the file and see where is the mistake, if there is one or is just a bug.
EDIT: well, yes, i just found that you have to click in RBDFracturedObject or RBDGlueObject to make it work, but if you click in just the RBDObject as the video does it…………it doesn't work :?
About the chrome material, i've been playing with reflection maps and you can get the same result as the video, apparently older versions assigned a defaul enviroment material but not in recent ones (9.1.244), not sure. I will have to read “changes from previous versions” more often
got it, but i don't fully understand it, it only works if i'm inside the AutoDopNetwork but not if i'm on obj mode, i mean in scene mode, but maybe it could be because i'm not totally aware of Houdini yet, have to look at it more carefully, the thing is if you follow step by step the video tutorial you can't get the same result anymore ?? or i made that mistake ?? Anyway, thank you for you time, i have to play a little bit more
don't know if you solved the problem but i have the same issue with 9.1.244 version, even when following the first video tutorial about the interface, i just cannot make the letters split when they fall down with the dynamics applied, i re-watched the video 5 times and follow step by step and i just can't make it, so i just want to know if something was changed or it is a bug or it is me or something, thanks for any comment on that.
I'm using Houdini Apprentice 9.1.244 version on Fedora 7 32bits if that helps. Thanks.
well, if you see the big picture, he is right, Houdini is targeting the freelancers or hobbiest guys lately with HD, that´s why i downloaded the Apprentice version and see how it works; it is an amazing package to play with, great Particles, awesome Dynamics and a totally new way of Modeling, but when it comes to render the problems start. I have read that Mantra is use in production a lot by big VFX houses, but those houses had lighters TD´s, programmers, etc, etc, that made the workflow better or easy, a Freelancer or Hobbiest simply can´t do that or even worst, the knowledge isn´t enough to undesrtand the way Mantra can work better or for that matter just work. I see his frustration comparing Mantra to Vray because Vray is easy to understand, and you can do scenes that you are satisfied with in a short period of time and that´s what a Freelancer or Hobbiest is looking for (most of the time i think), imagine the felling of working with those great particles and dynamics and then try to render them and not get any satisfied look, well, i think the resul is this kind of post. Just my 2 cents.
every thing goes fine until i try to run Houdini, i get this error:
$ ./myhoudini The Houdini 9.0.715 environment has been initialized. /opt/hfs9.0.715/bin/houdini-bin: error while loading shared libraries: /opt/hfs9.0.715/dsolib/libHoudiniUT.so: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied
Can anyone help me telling me what i'm doing wrong ? thanks for any help.
thanks guys, well i have decided the debian course since i haven´t see the price and the red hat enterprise was waaayyyyy much expensive, also i paid for a quick view to Ubuntu (5 hrs course) i hope i can stay with any of these 2 distros.
thanks for the response. Yes, i know that the course is just linux, i was asking if a can get an Apprentice version for red hat enterprise but now that i looked the download section again i see the red hat enterprise option, my mistake. Thanks.
By the way, what means (sarge) in the Debian 3.1 option ?? my english is not that good.
I´m thinking in take a Red Hat Enterpise course at local University, but i just want to ask if i can dowload an Apprentice version for this distro that works fine, another one can be a Debian course so any advices on wich course to choose would be great, i´m using the Windows XP Aprrentice version but i want to jump in to Linux, thanks.
