Correclty resolve ICE node strings to cache files using this ICE Node contextual menu. In Softimage 2012 it’s possible to load ICE caches using the new string nodes. Unfortunately after picking a file name, it doesn’t often resolve correctly to the cache file, particularly when there is frame padding involved. So, it’s necessary to manually […]
Here’s a very simple ICE compound that transforms a null object (best if set to display as an arrow) into a vector for use in an ICE computations. This is great for controlling particle emission or setting the orientation of a particle, with nice visual feedback. Arrow Null To Vector.xsicompound
This is a plugin that attempts to ease the workflow of reconnecting ports when copying ICE nodes. The plugin will copy and paste the selected node and will also re-wire all the input ports.
Here are a couple of little Softimage ICE compounds that I’ve found to be very useful over the last couple of months, when dealing with meshes generated from particle simulations. In particular, I’ve been working with the great SPH solver from Thiago Costa and Grant Kot, which when used in conjunction with a mesher, such […]
