    Hello Rob, welcome to Psynema. What brings you here? Houdini? Unreal? Film/FX?

    I’ve seen that a while ago. I couldn’t get that to work for various reaons, namely that was more of an overview vs. a step by step tutorial and left a few parts out. I’m not sure how he got Houdini to bake his hair but I was pulling my actual hair out trying to get opacity to bake in Houdini which was simple in Substance Designer, which also has…[Read more]

    Hello Connor thanks again I think Orbolt has been locked but the version on the site should be open and I’ll double check the orbolt version to see if I can get an unlocked version up. Also not sure what you mean by promoting the attribute, the asset should take care of that unless there was a major update change I missed recently.

    Hello Connor and welcome. What brings you to Psynema?

    • Hey Gary! Using your hair card SOP for Houdini. Wanted to download it and see inside to troubleshoot, which Orbolt wouldn’t let me do. One thing that’s not clear in your tutorial is that in 16.5 you have to promote the clumpid attribute from the Hair Gen SOP. Once I got that figured out, I was able to follow the rest of the tutorial. Baking now!

    • And thanks for the SOP and the tutorial! Great work!

    • Not sure if you’ve seen it, but a similar, Mantra-based methodology: https://youtu.be/nI0JjVKJhnY?t=1278

    Hopefully the vertex colors for animation and pivot painting can help.

    Great to know as I’m dying for real world feedback from others. The prim sort is nice but can be tricky if you’re not careful with planar hair objects and the clump size. But it’s functional for the most part.

  • Gary Hanna posted a new activity comment 9 months, 4 weeks ago

    Awesome thanks. Good to see you do Unreal as well.

    • Checking the asset. It’s funny that what I did is basically identical (using clumpid to generate polystrips) but your primitive sort is nice and gives better results. I’ll have to test it tomorrow with a proper model. Will let you know.

    • Will need to dig a bit. This is a vital asset for our movie, but we need to output animated hair meshes, not only static grooms. It works but it’s not very efficient till now.

    Awesome, let me know if you have any questions about the asset. Phenomenal work btw.
    Did you use Moho for the ING spot anychance?

    • Hello Gary, thanks for the kind words.
      That spot is TV Paint + After Effects if I remember correctly.
      We’re not using Moho for 2D, we’re using ToonBoom, TV Paint, AFX, ClipStudio Paint.
