Mix Studio’s Alvaro Castaneda dives into creating some awesome looking shapes using a simple method in Houdini — Modular multiplication. In math, modular arithmetic is a system where numbers can wrap around when they reach a certain value — like a clock.
how to make awesome looking shapes using a simple method, Modular Multiplication
Using Modular multiplication theory within Side FX Houdini, you can get some really detailed looking patterns and shapes using a really simple technique. This is a similar technique that was shown by Anastasia Opara, in a tutorial that showed how you can create what she calls, meditational programming. Opara, who was inspired by pendulum based animations, used simple VEX code to create patterns.
There is a simple online tool for visualizing modular maths around a circle. You can input an arbitrary number of points and a multiplier and instantly see the results.
