## ML101 – pt. 00: Introduction

This course is about making Machine Learning the next tool in your Houdini toolbox. Just like some problems are best solved with vector maths or Vex or Python, some problems get way easier with ML and we want to be able to spot these problems […]

## Building a Particle Brush for Copernicus

One of those really fun party trick brushes of Substance Painter is the particle brush, with which we can, well, paint particles onto an object, which in turn will run down it’s surface, leaving some nice streaks behind. Houdini has had particles for ages and […]

## Building a PBR layering asset in Copernicus

In the last video, we showed you our take on a Substance like pbr layering workflow in Copernicus. And in that video we used a custom Digital Asset that allowed us to quickly load in all textures of a pbr material, do some basic tweaks […]

## Building a Substance like texturing workflow in Copernicus

We’re back! And Houdini now has Copernicus, a complete rebuild of the image workspace with a focus on texturing! So, let’s see if we can build a texturing workflow where we can bring in multiple pbr texture sets and layer them onto an object with […]

## Rolling Shutter – Bending Time With Attribs

Today we want to take an artifact from digital cameras, something that we usually try to avoid, and turn it up to eleven! Make it an effect on it’s own! And that artifact is rolling shutter. To achieve this, we’ll need to bend time using […]

## Popping a Soap Bubble

Bubbles! We have a bit of a thing for bubbles here at Entagma. But the one classic Houdini setup we have not done yet is a bubble pop. So let’s fix this right now! Download Project File

## Volume Style Transfer With ONNX

In an earlier episode we took a first look at the new ONNX inference node, a node that allows us to use trained neural nets inside Houdini. And today we want to use this node for something usefull – Volume Style Transfer! We want to […]

## Machine Learning with ONNX in Houdini 20

With Houdini 20 we got our first official machine learning node from SideFX. While we previously had example scene files that did machine learing related stuff or plugins like mlops, this is the first machine learning tool that you get just by installing Houdini. So […]
