Ziva muscles vs Houdini muscles July 11, 2018, 3:53 p.m.

Yes, Ziva FEM is very fast indeed.

My hope is H17 brings an comparable/faster FEM solver, because Houdini is much, much more flexible.

Actually i'm working with FEM/Muscle in a custom setups, and doing some things not possible in Ziva.. but it is not “fast” in any means…

soon i will post some R&Ds on this.
