Radial Basis Function suite of node for Maya in c++ - update to maya 2018

Radial Basis Function suite of node for Maya in c++

The plugin is still available on gumroad and have been updated for maya 2018 for win only. For other os/maya version contact me.

modulateNode : Maya/C++

Here is a modulate node that coul be used to drive different kind of stuff in a procedural way:
 - components (vertex,face and edge),
- weightList (deformer)
Components or weighList can be drive by position,curve or mesh.
The node allow to modulate the value over time with fading effect.
This node can be use for procedural modelling or FX for example.


Driving components in different situation (locator,curve,mesh):

Accumulate overTime:
Fade overTime:

deleteFace overteTime:

More complex example, mixing multiple modulateNode:
1- polySmoothFace
2- polyExtrudeFace 
3- polyExtrudeFace 
4- polyAverageVertex
5- deleteEdge


Example along curve with animated over U:

proceduralSuite : Maya/C++

Here is a new project that i am working on.
This project is a suite of nodes for making procedural deformation on maya (works also with openVDB).
My goal is to produce a suite of node that allow the user to mix and create different kind of deformation based on various kind of noise: worley, turbulence (turbulence, fbm, billowy, ridged, inigo quilez, mountain, flow noise )

I try to keep workflow simple:
1-init mesh/openVDB point position
2-doing procedural stuff via mixing noise, modify, modulate etc
3-inject result into a deformer (position and/or color) or openVDB data

vortex deformer : Maya/C++

Here is a multithreaded vortex deformer for maya.
The deformer allow to add a vortex defromation on to a mesh based on input matrix (for exemple a locator). This one can be used for exemple to fake whirhpool over ocean deformer or anything else. The deformer also create a colorSet which can be used for shading. The noise is based onto a perlinNoise derivative.

Deformation :


Red = rotation amount
Green = noise
Blue = detph

Below few exemples:
