The SkinSolver in Houdini 19.0 treats skin as a softbody encased in a layer of triangles. This gives you maximum flexibility in driving different looks. ie, your skin can buckle and fold and preserve volume without necessarily looking like a thin garment. The ability to tear or break skin/tissue apart is not currently supported out-of-the-box with the Tissue and Skin nodes. However, they are released as HDAs, so they could be opened up and customized.

thanks johm

I've been following a softbody tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2EqLi2r1Ccw&ab_channel=ResilientPictureCompany [www.youtube.com]
would there be a way that smooths out the obvious fractures, ie be able to achieve similar without a fur sim over the top?

The VellumPostProcess node can be used to weld the fractured seams.
