How to Peel Apart Vellum With Houdini

Nick Medukha shows how to create an animation that peels apart vellum using glue constraints.

Constraints are one way to gain some control over a simulation. For example, in Houdini, the glue constraint is helpful when you work with the Vellum solver. This new beginner’s style tutorial by Nick Medukha shows how you can create an animation where two cloth sims peel apart like they were stuck together.

The tutorial covers how vellum glue constraints work and SOPs, Vellum, Dopnet, and Rendering. Sidefx Houdini allows a procedural approach that makes creating abstract and satisfying animations easy.
