Character week begins with the APEX Scene Animate SOP. This will be very new for many people. Don't worry - this node can be used with existing rigs that come with Houdini or are in the Content Library.



Here is another tutorial that uses that node: How to Pose and Animate Electra [www.sidefx.com]

This lesson uses the Electra rig which comes with Houdini. You can also use other characters found in the Content Library [www.sidefx.com].

I got the ragdoll example setup to work with my own ragdoll using the hive ragdoll video. APEX was a lot to take in for one evening, but once it's out of beta I think it would offer some great features. I'm super excited for it!

This was the first thing I thought of when seeing the electra test object. I wanted to get at least one of my Mardini projects animated. It's fitting that it was for an animation challenge haha.
