An Introduction to Attributes in SideFX Houdini

Rohan Dalvi Offers a Basic Introduction to Attributes in Houdini

CG Artist Rohan Dalvi posts another first look at working with the various aspects of Side FX Houdini. Designed for first-time users, Dalvi has been covering all the essentials to get new users started with Side FX’s procedural DCC.

His latest installment looks at Houdini-Attributes and how you can use them to influence parameters. Attributes are an important topic when discussing Houdini as they allow you to be much more flexible.
An attribute is mostly a value that can live on an object. You can then use that value to influence specific parameters. “If you understand them, you will be able to do a lot more with Houdini,” Dalvi says. See more from the series here.
