There will be another set of videos that will use the paper dart to simulate the throwing of thousands of darts onto a target. Keep you eye out for those videos in a couple of weeks.

This is a 4 part lesson. The first three are for beginner Procedural Modelers, the last will be for beginner and intermediate Houdini artists who want to do simulations. We will use DOPs to throw thousands of darts onto a target and have them only stick if certain criteria, such as velocity and direction, are met.

For beginners: In this video we will start the first of two diversions and create a material for a turn table that fades from opaque in the center to transparent at the edges and also fades the reflection. Made for Houdini beginners that are learning to build materials.

In this video we learn about making object level constraints and the Transform Wrangle in CHOPs.
