    Just a small correction at 3:15 you said to "select all the faces" but the edges are being selected instead. Just noticed it on second time through this tutorial. Great job btw!

      one can choose the correct one from the parameters pane of the group

    Thanks Robert had an amazing time getting through these tutorials!

    Just one question is it possible to control the animation of the bricks in Houdini digital assets in Unreal Engine 5?
    They appear static when you hit play in the interface


  • dimitridev 1 年, 6 ヶ月 前  | 

    thank you, great tutorial!

  • eugenimation 1 年, 6 ヶ月 前  | 

    Hi! Is it possible to add some kind of "hollow" option to the asset? I mean can I get rid of inner points of the volume to leave just outer ones? In case I don't need to fill the whole volume with bricks. Hope it makes sense.

  • Noname932 1 年, 6 ヶ月 前  | 

    Thank you for the tutorial, I'm learning Houdini and there's a small problem that I spotted, it's something that frequently encountered while using Blender so I wanna leave a comment in case someone else get bothered by it.


    After creating the brick, and look at it from below I spotted a small artifact in "subdivision edge/curves" display mode (2nd pic)
    The problem is when you limit the edges in "group1", it also include the intersected edges (1st pic) and those edge will also be beveled, therefore it created some weird artifact after subdividing.

    So I fixed it by:
    - Creating another node with the same group name (group1 in this case) and put it above the Bevel node but below the original group node
    - Use initial Merge "Subtract from Existing"
    - Enable "Base Group" option
    - Select the Edges ---> Right Click --> Copy as String
    - Paste it in the Base group parameter field
    => Now the group selection will exclude those problematic edges
    Also, The "Group" parameter in PolyBevel should also be changed to "group1", in my case, it use the strings from original group node, when I add the new group node, it doesn't update.

      Wow, such a cool observation!

      I could not find "Copy as String" in v19.5.

      But since these edges are created when extruding with distance (-)0.175, we can select edges to subtract based on that length, say by setting Min Edge Length to .174 and Max Edge Length to .176.

    I need some help. After creating the brick and change it to smooth shaded my circle isn't round. You can still see the corners of the circle. I am not sure how to fix it so that it is round. Thanks

    • NoahKino 3 ヶ月, 2 週間 前  | 

      I had this issue and resolved it. It was because when I pressed N it selected everything. It's very important that before you group everything and select just the edges. You can make sure of that on the top. Hope this helps

  • Mrmichaelt 1 年 前  | 

    I love these tutorials; thank you for taking the time to put them together.

  • GiantSpaceTurtle 10 ヶ月, 2 週間 前  | 

    Are there project files for this?

  • stereokroma 9 ヶ月, 3 週間 前  | 

    Hello, I completed this tutorial & I have a brickify asset now I can use. However, the issue I'm having is applying to anything more complex than the rubbertoy. Maybe I'm too new to understand how to set up renders right (pls point me to the right lesson if that's the case). I wanted to render out a little clip just like with the soccerball & wineglass, however I keep getting crashing & render errors or the program hanging up even if it's not using more than 25% of PC resources. I think something might be setup wrong or I don't know how to use this asset that makes it possible to render.

    I'm really having an impossible time setting up lighting, for example, the whole program is freezing up. I tried making file caches and that didn't help.

    I tried making a new project too & applying the brickify to a new obj I imported, and it is similar where it seems to make the whole program freeze up while doing anything with it.

    As a beginner going through these foundations tutorials... are we supposed to have memorized all the steps or will this start to just make sense with time... What is the recommended approach?

  • natrianvfx 8 ヶ月, 2 週間 前  | 

    Amazing tutorial, thank you very much. It is really interesting to see the application of Houdini digital assets

  • t.olenka1995 5 ヶ月 前  | 

    wanted to learn this for ages! thank you so much!

  • Artmendel 5 ヶ月 前  | 

    After some issues and few crashes (on the freshly installed H20) I was able to finish it an to play with it to the end in Unreal.
    I will add some collisions on the Rubber toy version in my UE 5.3.2 and thank you for your nice effort to deliver us some fun learning moments !

    I find those Tutorials really difficult to follow. He does a lot of stuff without sayin it loud and you cannot follow your screen because you have to watch the Tutorial screen.

    • Hakobus 3 ヶ月, 3 週間 前  | 

      Same here. It's easier to follow along with the Foundations PDF than with the video tutorials. In the videos he keeps doing things before he says what he's doing, and he often doesn't say what hotkeys he's using or where in the UI you should be when doing something.

    The next problem is you cant replicate the exact workflow as mentioned, because we dont know which version is used. With Houdini 20, the grouping via the Group node is not working as showed, tried to replicate everything exactly leaves you with all faces selected. If you want to bevel and subdivide in the next step you have no round circle on the top. Just for the sake of the beginners sanity, do steps manualy. Select your edges to bevel. As a transitionist from regular 3d modeling this is just confusing.
