How to Create a Potato Chips Generator With Houdini

Quentin Rossetto shows how to make a potato chips generator using Side FX Houdini.

What once started as a “wouldn’t it be funny if…” has turned into a reality, while still being quite amusing. I’m speaking of Quentin Rossetto’s tutorial series that looks into creating food elements in Houdini using procedural methods. His latest shows how to create a potato chip generator.

What started as a simple look into how to peel away parts of an object in Houdini, has turned into a whole series based on food.
“When Houdini gives you a peeled potato, you make potato chips,” Rossetto says of his latest. Also in the series is a look at creating a pickle!
