It's not shown in the video, but there is an option in the Poly Reduce node to keep Quads and it does a marvelous job keeping intact the original shape decreasing geometry in the areas whereis not needed. Unfortunately the Poly Reduce node only keeps quads if the input mesh is already quad based. In order to get quads from non quad geometries you need to try the Voxel node.
can 80.lv stop posting this kind of low-quality 'showcase' articles? If I wanna find showcase/reel, I can find them easily on Viemo, cgsociety. Everyone know houdini can be used to do destruction, simulation, etc. there is no need to show another destruction unless posting a helpful 'tutorial'. However, this is not.
Can it produce quads, too?
Check out a pack of 200 modular clouds by Brandon Young. These are great when building complex cloud structures, fog banks, and more. You can use these in any 3D application with openVDB implemented. Most common applications are Vray, Houdini, and Clarisse.
- 2 sets of clouds
- Round and flat
- 100 high-resolution clouds in each set and low-resolution respectively
- Renders of each cloud
You can take a look at all the clouds here before purchasing.
