Today we’re revisiting an old setup of ours: Creating intricate interference patterns using circular waves. Time has passed since Mo built the first version of this in 2018 and now, with Houdini 19.5, we got a new node that finally allows us to calculate those […]
By now it might have become apparent that Mo might be a bit fixated with soap bubbles and soap films. We covered Minimal Surfaces, soap film shading in Octane and in Redshift. Yet we deliberately omitted one crucial step in rendering nice soap bubbles: Creating […]
Head over to our Patreon for the free .hip files. We recently had to create a physically based thinfilm shader in Redshift. This is the result. It’s a slightly simplified version of this OSL shader from gamedev.net, implemented using purely Redshift nodes.
While on season break we received quite a few questions. One of those mails pointed us to the amazing work of Loris Cecchini, a sculptor who created (among other stunning artworks) those wave pattern sculptures. At first it didn’t seem clear what’s going on there.
