In Houdini there is usually more than one way to do anything. In this video, I will show you how to make a simply shape - a box - in 3 different ways: using the shelf tool, creating the nodes yourself, and by using Python.
With our Houdini series we'll take an exploratory approach. Playing around with all the different nodes, and trying to build interesting & challenging models and simulations. Houdini can be intimidating at first, but with a little bit of experimentation, the complexity starts to dissolve and a powerful and simple tool emerges. I hope you will learn to love Houdini as much as we do!
