Hard Surface Modeling in Houdini

Hard Surface Modeling in HoudiniHard Surface Modeling in Houdini


Hard Surface Modeling in Houdini : This training covers the process of building a highly detailed sci-fi power module and it’s surrounding environment entirely from scratch in Houdini. To model this scene we shall use a combination of poly modeling, NURBS, VDB and a little bit of VOPS.

This training will also help highlight the advantages of having a procedural system while building complex models and environments. The final chapter will take a look at how to render the scene in Octane Standalone by exporting the scene using Alembic.

The training is broken into 4 parts. You can read the details of each part after the break.

NOTE: This is training does not cover UV mapping and texturing of the scene
