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.

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.
