Great rocks, I am interested in hearing about the creation of the rocks, how much is houdini vs clarisse, e.g. base mesh with displace in clarisse or most generation of the heavy detail mesh in houdini and just exported into clarisse for layout and rendering?

Hi Ambassador,

Second solution, everything is generated inside Houdini (sop). Every columns is about 16-20M of triangles, but on my system it's still way faster to manage than doing displacement inside Clarisse. There isn't any bump/normal map either.

Strangely I like to set the normal smoothing by angle to 0 degree in Clarisse for that kind of asset ... it helps to give a very sharp look to rocks structure, but you need enough polygons to avoid faceting look of course.

ah interesting, I prefer the other way, keeping it live, but it all depends on project needs, its usually half and half, was just curious if it was just layout in clarisse or generation. Cool stuff.

Thanks for sharing
