Exporting Animation Takes with FBX Dec. 17, 2008, 5:01 a.m.

Ok thanks. I thought takes aren't the same in houdini than in FBX and you confirmed me it.

I prefer to create a single take with a single name with all animations one after another and use an intermediary tool to register witch frames corresponds with each animation. If y create separate FBX, my program will last too much opening each FBX with same geo and textures but different animation… or I should try exporting geo and textures in one FBX, and each animation appart in each other FBX file…

I will probe…

thanks a lot!!

Exporting Animation Takes with FBX Dec. 15, 2008, 5:23 a.m.

Im Trying to use Houdini animations in XNA Gamedev. I can import FBX animation information but the animation must have named TAKES.

For example if i have a 100 frames animation. from 1 to 30 is wallking,31 to 70 is running and 71 to 100 is falling ground. In maya you can name those takes and call separately from XNA.

Can I name those takes in houdini? how?

thanks a lot!

Mantra CRASH May 13, 2008, 8:03 a.m.

I created fur and simulated hair falling with a Spring node.
At the moment I like, i exported the fur geometry to a BGEO and import it with a file node.

After file node I want to cut the front hairs. To do this I change to point selection and select the lower points of the hairs falling in the front side. After selecting these group of points I press the delete key and a Blast node is automatically generated. Everything looks good but at this point, I change to “render region” and draw a rectangle to see the render version of this hair and… houdini crasses. Windows must close aplication. If I use the render menu/mandra. The mantra crashes too but houdini don't need to close.

If I go to the blast node and copy the numbers of deleted points and exchange the blast node with a delete node and then paste the points numbers, I get the same effect but the “render region” and the mantra renderer renders good and nothing wrong happends…

I supose there is a problem with the blast node on points or something like that.

PD: I am using the 9.1.211 version
