Hi, here are some screenshots of my attempts to teach myself Houdini, while making a zspheres-like modeling tool for it at the same time. I'm not actually sure where this project is going, to be honest. I'd like to be able to put it in a reel or portfolio, but I'm worried that such a tool wouldn't be very useful, since I have no practical experience in a studio pipeline to guide me on such matters. I don't suppose anyone here could be of any help/give advice, please?

hi, welcome to Houdini!

take a look at the muscle tools - they build very zsphere like proxy objects
something to get you going

Ah, I didn't realize that the muscle node was actually a subnet that possibly contains a way to do what I'm wanting to do! Thanks, arctor!

whenever you see this little lock flag - that means there is something inside
