Houdini Modeling Tutorials and Training. Gamma, Linear Color Space and HDR - XSI-Wiki. Part I: Gamma We’re all computer users whose primary interface for viewing images is the monitor.

Gamma, Linear Color Space and HDR - XSI-Wiki

Everything about monitors, including their aspect ratio, comes from their ancestors: old television sets. Old television sets were bad - it took a lot of voltage to make them bright. That’s the thing to remember - that images on a monitor are “darker than they should be”, which we’ll need to know later in order to debug what’s going wrong. Monitors have a gamma of about 2.5, which looks like the graph shown here Monitor Gamma of about 2.5 . But when we watch videos, look at pictures, and work on our computer, the images look the way we think they should, don’t they? For display on television sets, video cameras compensate by producing images that are slightly “brighter”, so the result is a gamma of about 2.2. DONNA & HOUDINI: Modeling in Houdini.

Expression cookbook - Houdini online help

For example, to have a Tube SOP change its height based on the translation of an object named logo, set the tube’s Height parameter to the expression ch("/obj/logo/ty"). To create ch() references easily, press on the source parameter and choose Copy Parameter, then press on the target parameter and choose Paste Copied References. You can use the channel value within an arithmetic expression, for example ch("/obj/$OS/spare1") + ch("/obj/$OS/tx") + 2 takes the value of the channel $OS/spare1 and adds the X value of that point plus two. The chf() function is the same as ch() function, but you can specify the frame at which to sample the value of the named parameter.

The chs() function returns the value as a string. Motiva COLIMO Overview I. Understanding Attributes & Variables. Houdini Mantra. Procedural Animation & Expressions. Traditional Animation Tools.
