How to Add Details to Vector Fields in Houdini

Inside the Mind shows how to expand vector fields to more than the path of a curve and add details to vector fields.

A previous tutorial from Inside The Mind covered how to dial in the movement of simulations by better understanding vector fields in Side FX Houdini. His latest tutorial expands on working with fields by showing how you can add details to vector fields and expand the vector field to more than just the path of a curve.

The tutorial takes the concept from having a follow path type Vector Field to a whole Vector Field with a follow path inside it. That way, you can get a lot more detail in the fields.

In the last little while, we’ve seen Inside the Mind (Stormz) cover a few topics within the simulation realm, including rigid body dynamics solvers and constraints you might also find helpful.
