Re: [Sidefx-houdini-list] advect along surface
Sunday, 11 September 2016 Sun, 11 Sep '16
Thanks guys. I’ll take a look and see if we can sort it out. We’re basically combining https://www.sidefx.com/tutorials/curl-noise-flow/ <https://www.sidefx.com/tutorials/curl-noise-flow/> and https://www.sidefx.com/tutorials/houdini-boolean-volume-denting/ <https://www.sidefx.com/tutorials/houdini-boolean-volume-denting/> but having our points (and trails) slide out of the intersection cavities i.e when the poly mesh breaks the surface we want to allow the points to come out and flow along the surface. Fun problem to solve. Gary Jaeger / 650.728.7957 direct / 415.518.1419 mobile http://corestudio.com <http://corestudio.com/>

How exactly you do that is another question. It really depends what are you after. Another method would be computing position as p' = p + dv, where dv is velocity per frame and then doing correction of that new position p' by volume gradient (i.e. pushing position along the normal to the surface). This one is fully 3d, but you need a wide enough band in the volume. On Sun, Sep 11, 2016 at 11:17 PM, Gary Jaeger <gary(a)corestudio.com> wrote: > Hello.
