Stormz shows how to create an abstract animation in Houdini using VDBs and other tricks.
Houdini might not seem the most obvious for motion design elements. Still, it’s not a wrong choice with MOPs (Motion Operators for Houdini) and Houdini’s procedural approach to everything.
Here, Stormz shows how to make an abstract shape animation by starting with a simple shape, creating some distortion, turning it into a VDB, and distorting that. “Abstract motion design in Houdini is incredibly easy to do and get lost in.” Stormz says.
