I am new to houdini so I will say what I am trying to do first incase there is a much easier way to go about it.

My goal is take a stack of black and white bitmaps and use them to make a voxel model, each one acting as a layer of the model.

my plan was to use a grid into a copy node and mask off points on the grid using the bitmaps.But I cant figure out how to get it to work or similar examples.

then figure out how to set a for loop for the folder of images, which is probably more challenging than I am expecting as well.

any help or advise would be greatly appreciated thank you!

I would first use a tiles-node in COPs to create a sprite sheet of your images. then attribfrommap transfers the pixels to your grids.

Hi Breht,
maybe you should first learn houdini before trying something this specific.

If you are into volumes and want to learn about volumes you will find a lot of tutorials etc.

That article looks super. However it refers to a demoPackage.zip file that is no longer available. If anyone has acess to this from before, or have another reference please share
