Software: Houdini 15 | Project Files: Included | Beginner | 610 MB
In this course, we will explore Houdini 15's Hair and Fur toolset. We start by examining the Hair shelf tools, taking time to understand how these tools work and how to use them to generate the initial building blocks of hair and fur. We'll explore the grooming tools and learn how to create different hair styles easily with the onscreen brushes. We will learn how to create different "looks" for a single groom just by modifying the Mantra Textured Hair shader. We'll discuss "Best Practices" for rendering Hair and Fur and wrap things up with a look at adding dynamics to hair and fur. This series of lessons was developed for an artist with a solid understanding of basic 3d concepts and a general understanding of Houdini's interface. If you're brand new to Houdini, check out our newest "Introduction to Houdini" course before taking on this material.
