How to Dynamically Drive a Car With a Gamepad in Houdini

Houdini Zone shows how to use a Gamepad to drive around a car in real time over terrain.

Check out this new tutorial by Houdini Zone that covers creating a setup in Side FX Houdini that will allow you to drive a car around in real time using a Gamepad controller.

Most DCCs will have MIDI or Gamepad abilities, and here, Houdini Zone shows how to set up all the channels and map them to the Gamepad controller.

Also, check out this tutorial from Jason Harmon, which shows how to use our computer’s keyboard as an input to create impulses to drive various types of animation in Side FX Houdini. Visit that tutorial here.
