How do I set up the backround? (image plane on Maya like..?) Feb. 17, 2011, 9:48 a.m.

I am very new to Houdini

I want to set up this ‘sky’ background on my scene

and I was wondering if there's something like.. ‘image plane’ which is under Camera menu on Maya, on Houdini
that way, the lights won't affect on the image.



I tried grid + material + uv project

but without no light, i can't get the image rendered..

is there any parameter that i can play with? to get the image self illuminating?

Thank you !

How do I write expression to move subject along the curve? Feb. 12, 2011, 5:51 p.m.

I am very new to Houdini

I am working on this project for my school assignment



I finished the modeling, but I don't know how to animate by writing expression (using expression is part of the project, so I can't key frame)

so far, I made the big main wheel rotating by using simple expression

$F*0.4, but I don't know what to do for rest of them

basically I have to make this chair(part of chairlift) to move along the rope.

for example)

let's say I have curve(that has 30 points) that is a star shape and a box.

How do I make this box to move along the curve?


is it a good idea?

also, How do I make this curve moving..?
now i have a static rope..




please ! help me…

thank you so much
