Research & Development


[warning] This article has kind of transformed into mini tutorial about raytracing, sorry, the fancy images at the end are the important part here 😀 So, I’ve started learning Houdini recently and I’ve completely fallen in love already. It’s not always easy, especially in the first few days, but it […]

Some fun tools that are the result of combining several other VR / 360° tools I’ve been developing for Fusion lately. Unfortunately there are a couple of bugs in Fusion 7 which lead to spending 95% of the development time finding workarounds and make unnecessary complicated flows. So stuff could […]

If you’ve ever done any compositing for 360×180° spherical panoramas you know that some things don’t work the same way as with normal renderings. One of these issues are Glows, Blurs, and other tools assuming a evenly distributed pixel density. Since Latitude-Longitude images are stretched at the poles on the […]

Latitude-Longitude Blur/Glow for Fusion





I’ve developed this little tool some years ago (actually, I can’t remember when exactly) as an in-house solution for reusing assets which we need once in a while. It saves a maxfile containting the model, does a thumbnail viewport snapshot and  collects all used maps etc. It’s not built for […]

Some time ago I’ve been looking for a way to export pflow particles to Eyeon Fusion. Unfortunately there is no useful method (baking it to meshes or something like that) to do it, so I wrote a script that exports an exr image sequence where each r-g-b pixel represents a […]

Pflow -> Fusion particle fun





Some months ago I started scripting a fragmenting tool which I unfortunately never finished. I called it “Bob”, bunch of bricks ;-). It is able to fragment with irregular shapes, bricks, voronoi, and can do multi-level clustering.
