Getting to Know the Vellum Workflow

John Moncrief offers some insights into how Vellum works so you can better understand the vellum workflow.

Lots of tutorials dealing with Houdini Vellum are fantastic, and some are downright mind-blowing. The Houdini solver is capable of a lot of varied jaw-dropping effects. But Vellum works a little differently than most Houdini tools, so it’s a good idea to learn and understand the fundamental design intentions and usage techniques for Vellum. Get to know the Houdini Vellum workflow with this new course by SideFX’s John Moncrief.

Vellum is a unified solver that gives fast production workflows for clothwiressoft bodiesballoons, and grains. Vellum works a little differently than most Houdini tools, so it’s a good idea to learn and understand the fundamental design intentions and usage techniques for Vellum.

The Vellum workflow offers easy setup and control, is OpenCL / GPU accelerated, and has some powerful visualization options as well. In this course, we will explore some of the critical nodes and concepts for working with Vellum, including Configuring Vellum objects, creating collisions, understanding constraints, and the “Post Solve” workflow.
