CG artist and FX supervisor Niels Prayer shares his approach to creating an abstract particle simulation in Houdini, providing insight into the essentials for driving particles through behaviors.
In this tutorial, Niels shows off his particle attributes in Houdini and how to control velocity for the simulation. He additionally demonstrates scale manipulation by adding a focal point onto an individual position within each strand of particles which is useful when working with custom tools like L Navi’s SimPlume filter or any other fast rendering plugin such as Luxe render farm manager .
