Automatically Find Min and Max Particle Age With Redshift in Houdini

Stormz shows how to automatically find min and max particle age in Houdini, perfect for making particle trails.

One of the best ways to control the color of a particle over time is to use the particle’s age as a touchstone. While there are a few ways to do this in Side FX Houdini, it does get a little trickier the older the particle gets.

This new tutorial from Stormz goes over how to automatically find the minimum and maximum age of the particles in a simulation in Houdini 19 and render them using Redshift.
