How to Create a Simple Motion Graphics Animation With Houdini

Stormz shows how to make a simple geometric motion graphics animation procedurally.

Houdini’s procedural nature makes it perfect for motion graphics-style animations. Houdini lets you test various looks without needing to change too much with your work. This new tutorial from Stormz shows how you can make a simple geometric motion graphics piece.

Houdini has a specific set of tools for motion graphics too. The Motion Operators for Houdini started as a collaboration between Henry Foster (Toadstorm) and Moritz Schwind (Entagma). Both wondered why motion graphics effects were so hard to set up in Houdini. Their vision was to leverage Houdini as a powerful and intuitive tool for design, allowing artists to work freely without worrying about math.
