Owly Feathers Houdini Dynamic Feather System

Oleg Memukhin shares his development into creating a Houdini Dynamic Feather system. Building one from scratch for a personal project, Oleg started with a fur based system, but then moved onto a more productive wire dynamic simulation.

Oleg makes the Houdini HIP file available for download for his Houdini Feather System, and calls it the Houdini Owly Feathers Dynamic feather system.

With Owly, you can

  • paint attributes such as comb, length, density,texture blending.
  • texture each feather, color all of them using skin texture.
  • blend multiple feather textures together
  • ruffle feathers, mystique effect.
  • supports custom imported curves. For example I created some curves in blender and used them to drive feathers.
