Art Directing RBD Simulation In Houdini

By: Andrew Sutherland

Welcome to an exciting journey in this new Free Houdini Velocity Tutorial

Ready to take your simulations to the next level? We’re thrilled to announce the release of a brand new FREE Houdini tutorial by FX artist Gavin Thin, taught by the talented Andrew Sutherland!

Master the Art of Velocity Control:

This in-depth tutorial will equip you with the skills to draw custom velocities and wield ultimate control over your simulations in Houdini.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • Crafting Velocity Fields: Learn to create precise velocity fields using curves, giving you complete control over the direction and speed of your simulations.
  • Pop Simulation from Curves: Discover how to leverage curves to set up powerful Pop simulations, perfect for dynamic effects.
  • Rasterizing & RBD Mastery: Master the art of rasterizing Pop simulations into velocity fields, allowing you to drive stunning RBD (Rigid Body Dynamics) simulations.
  • Practical Example: Follow along as we guide you through creating a custom velocity field using a curve, building a Pop simulation based on it, and then utilizing the resulting velocity field to power an RBD simulation.
