Hi,

i m trying to generate an image sequence that represent the contact area between the tires of a car and the ground.I would use this sequence to displace the ground and show tyre tracks.
Any suggestion?
I thought about transferring a color to points scattered on the ground but i was wondering if there is a better solution…

Thanks
Sergio

Here is a nice tutorial. It's for lightwave but it shouldn't be a problem to repeat it in Houdini http://www.andynicholas.com/?p=10&page=4 [andynicholas.com]

Thanks for the suggestion…

i was hoping anyway about doing it procedurally in houdini maybe transfering color attributes between meshes…but maybe i m trying to overcomplicate things…

Cheers

That should be pretty simple with an attribute transfer. The only trick is you need to run this in a sop-solver in dops to keep the previous frames around.

Hope that helps,
