Full Version: Call for Houdini in Scientific Application
Root » Houdini Lounge » Call for Houdini in Scientific Application
Dear all, I'm trying to prepare a proposal for a book about Scientific Application of Houdini. The idea is to cover both the visualization and also simulation tools and their use in a scientific environment.
If you are interested in the topic please contact me. I need feedback on the idea in order to l be able to develop a more defined draft. Also I will be glad to exchange opinions/ideas on this topic.
Sounds exciting, I'm not a scientist, but I'd love to check it out.

Personally, I'm the most curious about combining Houdini with DL.

Like in this talk [], Anastasia Opara talks about using DL to speed up terrain generation.

Also check out some interesting visualizations [](also made by her).

Feel free to email me to

The UTS Data Arena (Sydney Australia) has used Houdini for Data Viz since it opened in 2015.

Here's one example - the visualisation of bacteria. Images from a microscope (one per second)
were recorded and processed (Matlab) to locate and track bacteria, to better understand how
they travel (is it Stigmergy?) and communicate. []

There's more on the site. The Sydney Water pipe point-cloud was also processed in Houdini. []

This is very interesting, but I have no scientific background. I would be curios anyway to read it.

What is the target audience?

Personally, I'm the most curious about combining Houdini with DL.

This is a very good video a saw on Entagma : []
They are using scientific data bank and make the visualization. Amazing !
Presented by : Dr. Jeroen Claus of Phospho, a biologist and expert in visualizing molecular structures.
I'll be following this post.
This is a subject of interest to me.
I am still at the beginning of learning Houdini, but improving and I love this software and his elegant interface.
I'm one of the instructors of the Coursera MOOC posted above. SideFX also conducted this interview with a coworker and me about our sciviz work in Houdini:

I'd be happy to be involved!
