The LookUp CHOP I want to take a quick look at how you can use the LookUp CHOP to do many things such as set driven keys. Many of you may be familiar with set driven key solutions in other 3D applications and have been looking for a way of doing the same thing in Houdini. The LookUp CHOP represents a fantastic way to sample into any data with a simple reference curve. Understanding the LookUp CHOP The LookUp CHOP can be thought of as the chf() expression but on steroids. Index a path in to a walk cycle for crowd animation along particle pathsDeform geometry with noise and waves You can watch the video to learn how to set up a LookUp CHOP and how the index channel is used to reference the right input Look Up Table.

Martin Sawtell's website PRman and Houdini OK first off, lets link some resources:The odforce wiki page on this subject.DCT systems has a writeup.SCAD student Alex Lim has one too.As does Hubert Weldon. However there aren't any for PRman 14.3, OSX 10.5 and Houdini 10, which was the combination I had to deal with at the time. An odd one I know but the setup should be pretty similar to *nix, just with OSX's weirdness. Right, so go grab PRman from Pixar's website and install as per usual. You want to install Renderman Pro Server. In the houdini shell, add the path $RMANTREE to $PATH by typing this: export RMANTREE=/Applications/Pixar/ You MAY need to change your shell type to CSH to do this, the memory is hazy. echo 'Setting up prman' export RMANTREE="/Applications/Pixar/ export PATH="$PATH:$RMANTREE/bin" So... save that bunch of code as, chmod it to 777, and type 'source' in the shell to run it.

Black Ops II Wiki — Official tag line The link to the Call of Duty: Black Ops II website was also granted access to the public to coincide with the world reveal during the NBA basketball playoffs. Story The story takes place across two separate arcs, one recounting events in the 1980s, and the other following characters in the year 2025.[4] Plot According to Woods, by 1986 Alex Mason had effectively retired from active duty to pursue an obscure existence in Alaska with his son, the seven-year-old David. In light of this information, Mason and Hudson begin tracking Menendez, who has established himself as a primary arms dealer for bush conflicts in Southern Africa and Latin America. Faking his demise with the assistance of Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega, Menendez lives to retaliate against those he holds personally responsible for his sister's death.
