Welcome to the first entry on the large subject of Modular Tool Design for Houdini 8: Approaches for Building Scalable Tools for the TD and the Artist.
The first 2 entries will introduce the main issues with Modular Tool Design as it exists in Houdini 8. These entries use videos to both explain and demonstrate the various issues with building custom tools. We won't be diving in and building assets just yet. We need to understand the various issues and constraints first.
This first entry introduces the main concepts that I currently use when building tools in Houdini.
