Houdini Frictional Viscosities Complete With Project Files
cmiVFX has released Visco-Elastic Fluids in Houdini. This video is based around the theme of Learn, Test & Create. Firstly we’ll be covering basic ways of producing a Jiggly / Squishy effect without heavy techniques. We’ll also be learning about adding Microsolvers into Houdini’s solvers and using a ready made group of microsolvers wrapped in a digital asset. Next we’ll cover a workflow for Testing the different parameters of a simulation. As sometimes there are many different values you’d want to try, we’ll set up a simulation and run it many times with certain values changed – then bring them all side-by-side for comparison. Finally we will Create an exploding egg with elasticity, setting up egg white and egg yolk in a cool slow motion scene. As a bonus chapter, we will create an “Exploder” digital asset and import forces for use in Fluids / Pyro / RBD. This video also looks at some brand new Houdini 12.5 features such as Open VDB tools and the Point Wrangle node.
