Course Description

This tutorial is the first volume  in a series of tutorials about Destruction in Houdini.

In this volume, the viewer will learn everything needed to generate fracturing in preparation for destruction effects.
We will go beyond Voronoi fracturing and learn many ways to add detail to each fragment while still keeping low-resolution geometry for later simulations.

    H18 will introduce several RBD/Fracture improvements, so, how relevant is this course - being that its a paid course?

      Thanks for the question Daryl, we will update the content as soon as we gain some experience with the new way of fracturing in Houdini 18, but until then, people will still get a lot of value from this tutorial as it is now.
