Creating a Jeep Driving Through Mud With C4D And Houdini

Tim van Helsdingen shows how to create an amazingly realistic animation of a Jeep driving through the mud.

A new multi-part tutorial series from Tim van Helsdingen takes us through how he made an incredibly realistic scene of a Jeep driving through mud. The project uses Cinema 4D to animate the Jeep driving and Houdini to handle all the simulations.

Tim’s Howdini 101.

“People have been asking for me to do a Houdini beginner course, and after months of hard work… here it is, and I dub it Howdini101.” The course has a whopping 20 hours of fundamental knowledge.

“This course is different in many ways. A lot of intro courses will show you how some basic tools work; we will start learning the underlying logic of Houdini. You will learn how to apply that knowledge to creating a production-quality shot in the same way you would during an actual VFX production.”

This course is suitable for absolute beginners. No previous Houdini experience is required, making it the ideal course for beginners to start. Novice 3D artists can even follow it with little general 3D experience. But don’t worry, over the 20 hours, we will slowly ramp up to a more advanced level, making this a “much watch” even for more experienced 3D artists.
