I started Houdini earlier this year (from a C4D background), and have been completely obsessed ever since. This is my first animation I've made in Houdini which I turned in for my final project for a recent CGMA course. Made with mostly POP particles and grains.

this is really nice, love the shading on it. I too came from C4D and am loving Houdini, procedural modeling is it, I can't go back.

Wow phenomenal job! Love the colors and the smooth silky animation.
Looks like I'm the 3rd new user with Houdini who also has been using it about a year with a background of C4D.

Keep up this amazing work!

There is a piece for your reel.
Houdini is Life Cereal, once you had a bowl you can't stop.

Hi elihu252,

I am interested in your solution how you did the grains, where the “vase” is standing on.
I want to make a tennisball, lying on a sandcourt and am wondering how I can manage these much of grains?

Hi, if you check the case study, you can see that I created a small sample patch of grains and instanced that patch everywhere to fill in the void. You kind of have to find the right balance for your hardware as far as how large your sample patch should be. The main goal is to keep the sample patch as small as possible without any noticeable patterns showing up.
