    Got some questions on how I rigged the bendy bar on my latest animation shot (which you can check out at http://www.joelfinney.com/blog/2012/02/on-time/). I go through quickly over bones, spline IK handles, clusters, and setting up connections in the hypershade. One thing I forgot to mention about the spline IK is that you can actually set it up to be a psuedo FK/IK blended system by setting up multiple clusters and parenting them under each other (not applicable to this example, but if you were setting up a spine for example). Hope it helps, enjoy! Stewie rig provided by Animation Mentor.

        Just a fun way to attach fragments in clusters with visual feedback:) I made it mainly for Hfragment needs, but it can be used in wide area. thanks to 3ak for help

          Here there is a short piece where I tried to show the little moments of summer I lived in London this year. I say "little moments" because summer hides very well here in this city, but it's amazing when it comes out! Basically I just wanted to do tests with some film clusters and graphic stuff.

              This is the base explanation of how to work with hfragmenter tools. It has some good points but have also some disadvantages and bugs. Maybe useful in some cases.

                  I saw an example of cluster setup in Houdini here on vimeo and wanted to recreate it. Clustering would have helped me in production a couple of times so I wanted to set it up from scratch. I did 3 tests (just to compare times with different numbers of clusters). From frame 1 - 80: 0 Clusters (Just 1 big box): 1 min. 35 seconds 5 Clusters: 1 min. 13 seconds 10 Clusters: 1 min. 29 seconds Good to know that the more clusters doesn't necessarily mean faster results.

                    Dr. Thomas J Allen, Margaret MacVicar Faculty Fellow, Howard W. Johnson Professor of Management, Emeritus, MIT Sloan School of Management, talks about his seminal research documenting the value of companies and people working in close proximity to nurture innovation. Tom Allen's work formulated the idea of the Allen Curve - a simple understanding that the closer people and companies are located the more cross fertilization of ideas, network building, talent exchange, and enterprise results. Dr. Allen's research supports the success in regional technology business building at the Youngstown Business Incubator, Youngstown, Ohio and the Charleston Digital Corridor, Charleston, South Carolina - locations driven by investment in Quality, Connected Places and resulting in cool surroundings where people and companies want to be!
