Create a Particle Swirl Animation in Houdini with Octane

Nick Medukha shows how to work with millions of particles and how to render those with Octane.

Houdini can’t be matched for simulation effects and particle work. Have a look at this new tutorial from Nick Medukha that shows how you can create a glowing, swirling particle animation in Side FX Houdini.

The tutorial teaches how to generate millions of particles by working with POP Houdini networks and driving them using POP Forces. “We will set up a dynamic swirl animation and use Octane Render particle attributes to attach different materials to individual particles,” Medukha adds.
