cgSide covers a process that makes wicker or woven baskets quickly with Side FX Houdini.
This new walkthrough by cgSide shows how to create woven baskets procedurally with Houdini. The tutorial covers using the point normals to determine the wavy woven effect and converts those displaced points to curves.
The Basket comes together in three parts: one for the main body, the handle, and the bottom of the wicker basket.
The tutorial covers an overview of the setup, but if you want to see more, it’s on cgSide’s patreon.
