Have animated streamers create a logo in Houdini

VFXHomeland walks through charting an interesting effects where you can have animated streamers come in and form a logo in Side FX Houdini, then reverse out, deconstructing the logo.

This effect was originally explained by bryphi77 with a tutorial showing how the effect can be created inside of LightWave.

VFXHomeland offers some great Houdini Assets along with other tutorials. They have a pretty amazing Knit Solver for wrapping any object in complex realistic knitted surfaces. They also have a pretty great dew and water drops solver, which makes animating droplets of water on any object’s surface.
