Hate this.

Dandelion Wire Weighting Feb. 12, 2014, 7:10 p.m.


I was wondering if anyone could help me with this. I'm creating a dandelion simulation where the geometry is attached to each wire and all the wires are being deformed.

I'm having problems as the geometry spazzes out once the dandelion seeds come off the dandelion ball. Is the any way to fix the geometry right on to the wire so it doesn't deform because I think that's what the problem is.

I'm kinda new to houdini, it's probably a silly error I can't see.

Thanks in advance!

Break wire off geometry if at certain angle Feb. 12, 2014, 7:10 p.m.


I'm trying to create an expression in Houdini's Hscript to break the wires off the surface off an object when they reach a certain angle.

so far I have this

for i=0 to $P step 2

set even = “$i”
set odd = “$even+1”

while ($F == 0)
set vec_normal = “odd.$P - even.$P ” # find vector at frame 0
# echo vec_normal

while ($F > 0)
set vec_moving = “odd.$P - even.$P” # find vector at other frames
# echo vec_moving

if (vangle(vec_normal,vec_moving) > 40)
echo null
echo even


but it doesn't work…

I was wondering if anyone could help me with this?

Thanks in advance!
