How to Create Rocks or Cliffs With VDB Noises in Houdini

cgSide looks into creating rocks or cliffs using VDB noise in Side FX Houdini and walks through a Solaris setup.

This new tutorial from cgSide runs through how to create rocks in cliff faces in Side FX Houdini that uses VDB Noises. The video isn’t the first cliff-side tutorial from cgSide. A little while ago, he posted a dive into creating rock elements with Bifrost that use volumes, meshing, and scattered vegetation.

cgSide also runs through the Solaris setup in Houdini for the scene setup and render.
