Inspired by DesignMorphine’s Master Degree (Chapter 4 – Kinesis), Kinetic Correlations V1.0 will investigate generative swarm-based systems, vectors, vector trails, and particle systems in Houdini. Participants will learn how to create and develop visually inspiring generative formations built on parametric principals and computational rules. The webinar will tackle how to work with particles which are versatile and visually eye catching. Particle systems will be manipulated in both continuous and discrete flow types. These particle systems will be developed in VOPs, DOPs, and SOPs and POPs with an understanding of the difference between the various environments. In addition, students will be provided with an explanation of streams and how they work while getting an overview of how DOP networks and their connection types. Alternate particle generation methods will also be achieved such as converting imported mesh geometry into sources for particle simulations and displacement manipulations. We will give varying solid mesh geometry representations to the swarms as well as colors using a maps. Finally we will show how to set up lights and cameras to do a basic renderings in Houdini’s Mantra render engine.
