How to Easily Create Abstract Animated Design in Houdini

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.
