New Houdini 17 features that weren't promoted? Nov. 11, 2018, 12:42 p.m.

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!
