This class was originally designed to inspire my younger sister to explore the beauty of Houdini's proceduralism without overwhelming her, and is a great fit for absolute beginners with no prior 3D experience required.
By joining me in creating a simple but unique particle system you will gain a firm grasp of the Houdini interface, 3D dynamics, and a clear understanding of the most important part of Houdini, the Attributes.
Additionally, I'll show you some of the fundamental tips, tricks, and shortcuts to help you in your journey.
About The Project
In this project, you'll learn the basics of the Houdini interface and gradually build your first node tree by creating your very own unique particle system from scratch.
By the end of this project, you will have a solid foundation of proceduralism, and you'll be ready to take your skills to the next level and tackle more advanced projects.
