New project completed !

The last couple of weeks I’ve been working on the visuals of an animated mural for display in the area “Nortica” of the new Wildlands Emmen Zoo. It’s part of a small movie where the visitors go back in time to visit a couple of dinosaurs. More news and a small making off will follow after the opening of the park.

Tools for sale

I’ve started collecting old personally written tools & plugins. My plan is to sell them at small prices at various websites, the first ones being my own website paleopixels.com and cgplugins.com :

Houdini learning – Update 4

More Houdini, again :).
This time the roads are projected onto a landscape, while remaining without banking. The banking will be later controlled by the user (instead of the landscape (as a normal projection would do)). Besides this there’s also abit of control in how the track cuts itself into the landscape.
Next up are grass and asphalt strokes next to the main roads, fences&walls, projected materials and plants.

Houdini learning – Update

A small update on my learning this program…I’ve been busy trying to create a race track/landscape generator with a basic set of user inputs as the start, Houdini takes care of the rest. These images show one track that cuts itself out of a landscape, one of the basic functionalities. Stay tuned for more updates!
