How is the Clovers sit on top between tiles? for mine, blend modes doesnt seem to be working... they follow the height of the tiles which results in extreme distortion of clovers following the height changes of tiles

I really liked Cris Tales, its a Colombian game, i really like it how it looks, its like a old JRPG with a unique graphic style: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXAUWjhqeKg

Flux 2.0 - Improved Modeling with Booleans in Houdini
31 May, 2017

Flux 2.0, a free update for all users of a modeling toolset for Houdini 16.0, is coming. Alexey Vanzhula is teasing fans of the tool with videos featuring previews of upcoming features. 

Here is glimpse at v2.0:

“What is Flux,” you may ask. It is a toolkit that drastically improves modeling with Booleans in Houdini.


The project features:

  1. Procedural hard surface modeling with soft blended boolean operations
  2. Retopology toolset widget


  • Boolean operations: Union, Subtract, Intersection, Contour
  • Smooth beveling with flatness factor and variable radius
  • Vertex normals with relax feature
  • Interactive creation and setup
  • Special primitive type node that creates quadric geometry. It is a building blocks for flux blend operations. Has mirror and deformation built-in functionality. Can also be used to add thickness to polygon curves. This allows to use curves in flux operaions
  • Retopolgy tools widget. Allows using any modeling tool with TopoBuild SOP
  • Additional simple tools: Quick Copy, VDB Remesh, Bake Geometry

Previous versions in action:



  • All documentation is in the parameters tooltips. They are described in great detail. Just move mouse to parameters and read what they do
  • All the tools you can find in ‘Modeler’ tab menu
  • Maya and other DCC applications is not supported. You can play with it on your own risk. But best way is using Houdini and export geometry to your DCC. All the benefits of interactivity is only inside Houdini
