Chetal Gazdar shows how to copy a pattern onto polygons using UV locations.
In a new tutorial designed for Houdini beginners, Chetal Gazdar shows how you can take a pattern and copy it onto polygons in Side FX Houdini. The tutorial shows how to use UV locations as a base of the process, and it also runs through using some attribute wrangles.
Some of the things covered in this tutorial can quickly expand the process. For example, check out a tutorial from Small Robot Studio (Michael Rew) that shows how to create a beaded skull that uses pattern and scatter effects.
