Learning path: RIGGING IN HOUDINI 16+ Jan. 31, 2018, 4:24 p.m.

Just wondering if there’s an updated ETA of the upcoming rigging tutorials? Very much looking forward to them!

Polyextrude - normals when extruding with negative distance Nov. 1, 2017, 12:11 p.m.

Take a grid and extrude it with a negative distance with output back. The (intrinsic) normals are now pointing inwards.. Is this the intended behaviour? I find it quite frustrating as I need to put a reverse node after every extrude with a negative distance…

Grains - Disable Constraint Averaging Oct. 31, 2017, 6:30 a.m.

I'm getting some unbalanced forces when using grains, its the same problem as described in the grains masterclass around 32:50. As Jeff says the solution is to disable constraint averaging and then insure all the internal forces add up to 1. I've done this but I still have an imbalance.. I wanted to check which forces are meant to add up to 1, in the video it implies that Internal Collisions + Clumping + Explicit Constraints = 1. However in the help document it mentions that Friction with Particles should be included as well.

So should I set Friction with Particles, Internal Collisions, Clumping and Explicit Constraints to 0.25?
