VOP nodes

VOP nodes VOP node VOP nodes let you define a program (such as a shader) by connecting nodes together. Houdini then compiles the node network into executable VEX code. Source: VOP nodes

PROCEDURAL DEPENDENCY GRAPH

PDG is a procedural architecture designed to distribute tasks and manage dependencies to better scale, automate, and analyze content pipelines for Film, TV, Games, Advertising and VR.

PDG is designed to describe these dependencies visually using nodes that generate sets of actionable tasks then distributes them to multiple cores on the same machine, the compute farm, or even the cloud. PDG provides a rich set of stock nodes to enhance productivity, and manages the dependencies smartly to minimize recompute upon changes.

Particle fluid tips

Particle fluid tips If a collision/container wall is too thin, the particles can collide with the wall but the pressure solve step may not see it, causing particles to “stack up” against the wall instead of bouncing off it, making the liquid appear to compress and disappear. Increasing the thickness of the collision geometry will … Read more Particle fluid tips

Gas Surface Tension

A microsolver that calculates a surface tension force proportional to the curvature of the surface field. The Gas Surface Tension DOP is a microsolver used in building larger fluid simulations. The Fluid Solver and Smoke Solver DOPs that allow microsolvers to be added before or after the main solver step to extend or tweak the simulation. Alternatively, enterprising people … Read more Gas Surface Tension
