It’s time to start looking at one of the most exciting new features of Houdini 10! In this video tutorial, we take a look at the Pyro FX workflow used to create high-quality Fire and Smoke. The Pyro tools were created with the artist in mind and make it easier than ever to get your effects out the door.
This tutorial uses one of the production-ready Pyro FX presets to get you started. You then learn how to navigate the network, cache out a low-res sim, up-res to get more detail, then use IPR and the VEX Pyro shader to complete your effect.
