Scene Files from Intro to Fluids in Houdini

A while back, I made a series of video tutorials for Fluid Dynamics in Houdini. I’m pleased to say, that these were rather well received, and I had a lot of requests for the scene files to be made available. The glass of water video in particular had been garnering lots of attention since it was released last year, and so I decided to make the files available for everyone. It took a long time to prepare, but I ran through the files and updated them for newer builds of Houdini, and at the same time wrote comments on the majority of the nodes so that people could easily figure out what was happening in the files. These files are now available through bit torrent on the Side Effects Software Inc. website.

Now to develop new tutorials!
