A new tutorial from Christopher Rutledge shares a bunch of useful Houdini Vellum production tips and tricks. Notably, the latest video shows how you can drive vellum with input animation. Rutledge shows how you can have parts of a character animate using mocap while others simulate with the Vellum solver.
