Calculating light value from geo input. 2023年6月18日11:24

I recently followed along with the Project Titan Ivy Tool tutorial [www.sidefx.com] and absolutely loved it.

It worked very well inside unreal engine, except there is still one thing bugging me.
If I throw it on the model of a house for example. There will also be Ivy growing on the inside of the house.

Now i could maybe manually set every object this would be used on to exclude centrain prims/points from spawning ivy. But I was wondering if there would be a more procedural way of doing this.

Is there a way to calculate a light value and only have points based on how much light geometry would be receiving?

That's amazing! Thanks so much for the clear explanation.

Marvel like intro. Footage on AOV's. 2022年10月26日11:08

I'm trying to create something like the marvel intro, where some (moving) faces have video footage as a texture. Like a screen basically.

I'm currently trying this by creating a group with the faces and loading these as an AOV via Karma.
Then track this scene later and apply the footage manually to these faces in After Effects.

Is there a better way to do this? How would you approach this scene?
