Houdini instanced Fonts HDA and some curve optimizations

Hi Houdini Folks,

this contains a houdini indie scene and the HDAs

(sorry it was made in daily build 18.0.356) and you might get an error message if opened in an earlier version. It might still work however)

This is a free download as this part of an article i wrote for German based digitalproduction.com print magazine. So pleae also thank them!

What it does:

convert a font to an hfont that can be 3D or otherwise optimized.

With this 3D font you can type as normal but the letters or characters will be instances, so even large numbers of letters are no problem to render.

Also included are tools for optimizing and analyzing curves (as letters are curves) but also for traced curves. One of the HDAs sorts curves that do not cross each other onto layers. So when a curve is inside of another it is on a higher layer. This way you can deal with simple holes or even complex shapes. See the attached images here.

You can use this for title sequences with animated letters or whenever you need 3D Text that is still editable. 

Have Fun


PS: it is free, but please feel free to pay, if you used this commercially. I also have a patreon page...
