I'm attempting a list of some of the special/unique features and outcomes
possible with the RBD tools in DOPs.
Simulations can be optimized for any number of objects and any degree
Objects can be constrained in multiple axes so that keyframe animation
can be combined with rigid body animation.
Model weight, shape and complexity need not have a corresponding
effect on simulation time.
Pre-fractured models can be set to only break apart according to the
specific forces involved in a particular impact.
Stand-alone rigid body dynamics tools of comparable ability cost far
more than a license of Houdini, and come without all the other tools that
Side Effects Software has accumulated in Houdini over two decades of
I welcome people to add to these. (until Monday night - L.A. time)
Thanks! - it's for a good cause...
