A Beginner’s Guide to Creating Houdini Digital Assets

The CGI Nerd shows how to create Houdini Digital Assets using a picket fence as an example.

With SideFX Houdini, you can turn networks into reusable custom nodes that have custom user interfaces. These custom nodes are called Digital Assets. You can create a digital asset from any type, be it object, geometry, dynamics, etc. and convert it into a subnetwork. How is this done? Have a look at Alejandro Perez (CGI Nerd) latest tutorial that you can use as a beginners’ guide to creating HDA’s.

The tutorial shows how to turn a simple picket fence into an asset that has controls for a lot of the functions for posts, boards, type of fencing, and more. If you are looking for more getting started type tutorials for creating HDA’s, have a look at Rohan Dalvi’s guide for building assets, along with this one from Eoscaro.
