Houdini

CHOPs and Parameters

In this lesson, we will use CHOPs to extract motion parameters from one objects, modify the data, then assign the values to parameters on other shapes. We will also see how each parameters in a SOP is actually its own channel with its own path, and CHOPs can be used to manipulate all of these channels.

Course Description
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!
