Hi everyone, im new to houdini but have a question as i really cant seem to find the answer anywhere.

I was wondering how you would keep a groom once you have added simulation to it?

As in how do you stop the groom from just flopping down with gravity? Is there a way that the simulation will try keep the groom ?

hope this makes sense.

Thanks in advance.

It nots very clear what you're exactly trying to achieve. It sounds like you want to turn the gravity off? Or maybe decrease the force of gravity? You might be able to find your answer here: https://www.sidefx.com/docs/houdini/nodes/obj/guidesim.html [www.sidefx.com]

This lists the parameters and what they do. You can disable gravity under forces.

Hi thanks for the reply. Basically I just didnt want the hair to flop down and wanted to behave more like our hair would. I found a good way to achieve this was with less sample points in the guide hairs.

Thanks again
