Learning Houdini

MODELING

Houdini has a suite of tools for creating, shaping and deforming geometry. Many of these tools allow you to take a straight ahead modeling approach in the viewport while others let you work procedurally using nodes and networks. A combination of these two approaches provides the most flexibility which allows for more creative control and the ability to quickly create many iterations.
