Creating a Swarm on a Surface With Houdini

Junichiro Horikawa shows how you can create a swarm on a surface, using schooling simulations.

Junichiro Horikawa‘s new tutorial has a look at how to make a swarm on a surface in Houdini. We’ve seen Junichiro walkthrough schooling and flocking using Houdini before. Now the schooling or flocking happens along the surface of an object.

The final result is a fantastic looking effect where you have paths animating along the surface of any object within Side FX Houdini. Junichiro often mixes art and code in Houdini and previously covers a lot of really cool generative exercises from fractals to visualizing complicated math.
