Join Scott Pagano for an in-depth discussion in this video Run and cache FEM simulation, part of Houdini 15.5: Dynamics and Simulation.
- [Instructor] Now we've taken a look…at the simulated results of our jellyfish body…running through the Finite Element Solver.…Next what we're going to set up is the cache,…so we cache out the body that's been simulated…so then we can move on to attach the tentacles…to parts of that geometry and get those simulated.…I'm going to change my time line here to 720,…because that's the full length we're going to do for this shot.…I go out of there, I'm going to go into the body object…and over here is everything we set up…with our point to form for our simulation…and over here is our dopimport_embedded node.…
This is great because this gets our unproxy,…our initial geometry, out of the dop simulation.…The Finite Element Solver set up is super great…because we basically can feed in this proxy…and then automatically get out our initial geometry…without having to go through any hoops to, sort of,…reassign or transfer motion.…What I want to do after the dopimport_embedded,…is I'm just going to lay down another file cache node.…
