In this lesson we'll see how to use simple math to build and control a spiral staircase.



Rohan has always been interested in film and animation which led him to life as a 3D artist. He was also passionate about teaching so he started his own “Institute for Advanced Animation.” He primarily concentrated on teaching software skills while working on design visualization, motion graphics, industrial animations and also some medical renderings. He then stumbled upon Houdini and the rest is history as his many Houdini tutorials have helped artists from around the world get into the world of proceduralism.

    Is it possible to use vex instead of hscript? great tutorial

    • rohandalvi 2 years, 4 months ago  | 

      It depends upon the application. In some places it's better to use vex and in others it's easier to use hscript. But I'm not very good at coding so you'll have to ask that question to someone who's good at it.

      Look up David Kahl vfx on youtube. He makes a lot of videos on how to use Vex in houdini. He should be able to answer your question.
