Hi all meet Clarioni !

Houdini link for Clarisse IFX
Clarioni enables artists to interactively change assets in Clarisse IFX. Control Houdini nodes in Clarisse and load your volume or geometry caches with a click. Turbo charge your workflow and leverage the power of both worlds!

Stay tuned for more info!


Clarioni Developer Preview:



Update 06/08/2020 - v.0.5.3 alpha - 06/08/2020
After few days of testing some bugs re-emerged and needed more loving. Saved Clarisse projects with Clarioni nodes load much faster now and they dont re-evaluate on-load. Fixed other bugs related to Houdini. Tested H18, which for now works as expected. More work needs to be done on params / attributes in Clarisse. I am trying to catch end aug / early sept dates for release. In this very moment im very much inclined on Sept Release for 1.0, with some of the params / features moved to 1.1 / 1.2 release. Thanks for support and nice words in PM guys! This realy helps keep motivation on this project High! Thanks again!

Update 10/07/2020 - v.0.5 alpha - 10/07/2020
Work on parser is mainly done. Filtering and mapping data types in progress. Still more work to do, but im confidently targeting a mid August/early September release for v.1.0. There are some ideas worth exploring for Clarioni. For the next update, I will try to record a new vid with some new UI and showcasing more techniques. Thanks for support guys!


Update 20/06/2020 - v.0.4 alpha - 20/06/2020
Refractoring in progress. Rework of parameters parser(more flexible and faster) to accomodate a nicer UI in Clarisse, so parameters from Houdini have more sense in Clarisse UI. No video this time sorry :) More work has to be done for the next version, which will bring us a step closer to release. More info and features in next update!

Features in current version - Clarioni (Houdini 17.5 Version):
Supported file caches : Alembic, Vdb
Supported (loadable and controlable from Clarissse) nodes: Any node in any context. Yes you read it right, any node (not tested all nodes, but any node with at least one parameter can be loaded in Clarisse).
