Tutorial series - Procedural Cliffs with SideFX houdini
!! project files / Tools : Houdini 18 Indie only !!
This new tutorial series should be particularly exciting if you are looking to generate procedural cliffs either for concept, environment work or ocean simulations.
As an environment artist, I had to sculpt and texture a lot of cliffs and rocks in my career... and for me looking for procedural ways to tackle at least a decent blocking is always a huge help. Because you can then generate and control a large amount of models and variants in a very short amount of time.
My Goal is to make you think proceduraly and let you be able to use houdini to really control the look of your models.
