Stormz shows how you can model using the new Triplanar displace in Houdini.
Houdini SideFX labs have a lot of useful tools for digital artists. With over 150 tools covering common workflows, there are many things that you could dive into there. This new tutorial from Stormz shows how you can work with the new Triplanar displace to virtually model details.
Triplanar Mapping, Extended.
You might already be familiar with Triplanar in terms of texturing workflow. With Triplanar mapping, you are using three planar maps to cover a 3D object. The Triplanar Displace works much in the same way. You can designate which parts of the thing get the effect when modeling this way.
