I'm Tyler Bay - a 3D generalist & freelancer based out of Nashville, TN.

Besides freelance gigs, I've also worked with the great folks at Pixar and am really passionate about teaching others how to make 3D. Be sure to check out my Houdini For The New Artist tutorials. You can find a good deal of them for free, and they're totally awesome.

So, in regards to the falloff node, I just released a new video that talks about that a little bit. Check out it here:

Today, I plan on making another quick-tip video, so I'll let you know if I end up adding another one about the other new sop nodes

Hey there Dean,

Depending on where you're currently at with Lighting/Shading, my free course - Houdini For The New Artist might be relevant to what you're looking for. I don't go into a ton of detail, but I do cover the basics on how to apply materials, rendering, & adjust things like light linking.

If you're interested, feel free to check it out on CG Circuit: https://www.cgcircuit.com/tutorial/houdini-for-the-new-artist [www.cgcircuit.com]

Right now I'm also making a Houdini For The New Artist Part II that goes over more shading/lighting, so also be on the lookout for that.

Hope that helps!
