Here is the process of making this kind of volume particles effect with Houdini and Redshift renderer.

    In my case it was not useful, due to the fact that there is no explanation but only a cinematic music during the fast process.

    Can you provide the file Ahmed? That would make a change.

    Thanks anyway.

    Very nice. When I try to replicate it, I get large black squares instead of particles from my popnet. Anybody else get this? H17.0.352

      Hi john .. thank you

      for " Black Squares " if you use model from houdini native models like " rubbuertoy " please remember to " UN-Check " add shader from setting of model
      and convert it with " Convert Node " and continue the work .. that's it :)

    Thanks for the tutorial!

    I get black squares too. Just drop down a PopSprite node inside the PopNet1 and reduce the scale down to 0.01 or something small. You can use the default smoke_puff.rat texture or browse to the $HFS/houdini/pic/ folder and choose circle.pic. I think the black squares are the result of having a low-end graphics card. I get this on my 660GTX with only 2GB or vRAM.
