Analytical Foam

As position based simulation techniques are very fast theses days, it is possible to use them to confrom intersecting spheres to each other, to model foam. Nevertheless there are other possibilities, too.

Polyfolding – Part 1

This is the first part of a two part tutorial. Part two will be available soon. Polyfolding is an interesting effect where you split up an object to individual bands and make them curl up. It can be used to disintegrate an object or make […]

VEX in Houdini: Space Colonization

Branching growth is fascinating as it has a lot of hidden structure to it and is very intricate. Many methods have been proposed over the years to model branching structures, like trees. One algorithm that is particularly beautiful and simple is the “Space Colonization” algorithm, […]

Mandelbrot and Mandelbulb

The Mandelbrot set – the mythical King of fractals. The one that started the whole fractal craze in the 80s and 90s. In this video we’ll implement not only a classic Mandelbrot set that will yield the omnipresent image of that weirdish ridged shape, but […]
