Lesson 10 | Particles
This lesson focuses on Houdini’s two particle systems. The POP SOP and Particle Network. We will quickly explore the POP SOP to get a good understanding on how to create particles and then we will switch gear and look at the more powerful Houdini Particle Network. We will understand how the different forces work, what are charges, and finally how to render a particle system.The scene files for this lesson are available using the button at the top right just under the embedded video.
