In today’s lesson, we will learn to work with textures and start using SciPy to build sparse matrices.
In this Tutorial we will become geometry gods. We will create and animate and destroy geometry at our will. We will also learn how to make cool videos from this 🍌.
In the previous tutorial, we learned a lot of technical details on how to use Houdini. In this tutorial, we will go into more depth and learn how to write code on geometry. Will this be fun? Why would anyone ask that? Of course!
I will do my very best to make your entry as smooth as possible. It will be like sitting in a cockpit with the fear of crashing the plane by hitting the wrong button but rest assured that we will bit by bit learn to understand the software. It will be worth it and you will get a nice insight behind the scenes of Hollywood production on the way.
Before the first Tutorial on the 30th of October 2019, please go ahead and install Houdini.
Please check out the daily builds site and download Houdini 16.5. You will have to create an account to download the necessary file.
