In this video tutorial, Saber Jlassi will explore a few advanced Abstract FX techniques in Houdini using Karma in Houdini 19.

Most FX artists work on projects that include explosions, smoke, debris, and similar types of shots. However, abstract FX can sometimes be some of the most impressive-looking FX out there even if they are mainly used for R&D purposes. If you spend any amount of time on Instagram, you’ll likely see thousands of Houdini renders featuring abstract FX projects from around the industry. 

Today, we’d like to explore the exciting world of abstract FX in Houdini using the Karma renderer in Houdini.
