Houdini Engine

Postby rurik » Sun Sep 15, 2013 8:19 pm

Has the Derivative team given any thought to Houdini Engine? There is a great video on SideFX.com showing how it integrates with Unity. If you could work your geo in Houdini and keep a live connection open with Houdini to refine it until you are done, that would be a fantastic workflow and would give SOPS a bit of well deserved love...

I agree that SOPs need a little love. SOPs are one of the most significant things that separate Touch from othe 'VJ tools' out there but they are largely what they were ten years ago.

It would be great to hear a bit about your plans for the future of SOPs. I had imagined something that would be GPU-based in the realm of geometry shaders, much like the transition from COPs to TOPs.

Any comments on this by derivative?
I personally nearly never import 3d objects (only for mapping stuff). I find it one of the greatest things about TD that we can work on geometry in a procedural way.
SOPs are the greatest thing! (Although I understand maybe 3/4 of them..)
Some care for them would be awesome. Also I nearly never find good tutorials on them, or on working procedural with 3d in general.

Looks like Cinema4d just implemented their hooks to the Houdini Engine

No question. Hopefully we'll hear Derivative's thoughts on this
