Simon Verstraete covers some of the new scattering features in Houdini 18.5.
A new tutorial from Simon Houdini channel (Simon Verstraete) shows how to use the new Scattering features from Houdini 18.5. “With these new nodes, you can better select or mask out areas to place and scatter models.”
Also covered is how the new scatter and align deals with orientation and scale by default. Now you don’t have to worry about setting these attributes whenever scattering. Simon also notes that a single detail from the pieces node can assign models based on a pScale value.
