That is really a great thing for us all. http://fewhacks.com/
I just based my landscape material on this. I just wish I could exactly figure out what is going on with normals, ao and displacement here.
That was extremely helpful! Thank you!
TRacer X is a plugin for Modo that can drastically speed up your production process.
The pack features 4 mesh operators:
- Curve Tracer X
- Noise Displacement X
- Image To Weight X
Here are some details on the operators from the developer:
Curve tracer will allow you to generate curves from animated mesh vertices (bspline, curve and polyline are supported).
It can be used for a variety of different situations, including motion graphics, particles generation, or making long hairs
Noise displacement instead applies a perlin noise to the underlying mesh.
Noise can be applied to Curves as well, and combined with a gradient to attenuate the effect.
Image To Weight X takes an image from the clip browser and converts it to a Weight Map. Various Blending modes are available for multiple instances of this meshOp. Image sequences are supported as well.
Push X is the same as the standard modo’s Push deformer, but it supports a weight map, to be combined with Image To Weight X.
The tool can be used with win64 and osX.
