This video will be an overview on how to do component selection in Houdini, using the different selection modes. We set up a side-by-side view to see the difference between having Select Visible Geometry Only enabled/disabled. In addition to Box selection, we look at Brush, Lasso and Laser and where it would be helpful to use which selection mode. And of course, because we love hotkeys, we see how Spacebar+Z hotkey will allow you to focus the camera to the position of your cursor, which not only zooms in on the spot but also tumbles on/around that position.
