anyone interested in a tutorial for maya to houdini camera matching?

Hi All-

Would anyone be interested in learning how to take your maya camera data and bringing it into houdini?

I have been using this technique for a bit now. It is not hard to do and I would love to share my approach with everyone, that is if people are wanting to learn how to do this. No sense to make a tutorial if no one is gonna use it.

The applications that I am using this techinque for are I am taking a maya animation plate and compositing houdini particle effects into it. The easiest and most effective way of doing this is by being able to get your camera (moving or still) to match and also your character and other objects to match between the two programs.

Let me know if anyone is interested and I will get started on the tutorial.

I will get started on it as soon as I get back from Siggraph. Maybe I will learn some more tricks while I am there.

Sorry to keep you guys hanging for nearly 4 months School got in the way, but in the process I learned enough to have enough material for about 5 more Houdini tutorials. But lets start with this one first:

http://studentpages.scad.edu/~lcamp...s/cam_matching/

It is 75% done. The camera matching bit is all done. The last bit, the particles and compositing bit is not done yet. But you can still learn how to cam match between Maya and Houdini with what I have written so far.

Some things to ignore for right now: The light and the Particles. Both will be necessary once I finish this tutorial.

Just lemme know about either bad links (don't click on any links that say "Particles") or things that are written poorly that you can't understand, suggestions, comments,etc. This tutorial can only be made better and I need you guys to test it out for me.

Enjoy!

Now, I haven't gone through the tutorial but it's a bit strange that you mention on the first page that you require Houdini 6.0 AND a compositor when there's already one in Houdini 6.0.
