In Houdini, a Torus is a primitive type. But I wanted to make a torus from a tube, and to do so I learned how to use the Bend and Fuse nodes. Better still, by using parameter expressions I was able to make my new Torus network flexible so that you could change the parameters on the Tube, and the result would still be a Torus.
Stay tuned! We'll be adding additional learning resources very soon.
Stay tuned! Bonus features for this video are under development...
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!
