Houdini Tutorial : Floating Islands from Rohan Dalvi

The aim of this training is to take you through the process of creating the “Floating Islands” image, all the way from modeling to render.

The training covers various aspects including terrain modeling and sculpting, generating large quantities of plants and vegetation in Houdini. The plants and trees will be developed using L-Systems. The training will also cover Rigid Body Dynamics, Particles and Fluids to create certain elements of the image.

The tutorials will cover terrain modeling, modeling using the VDB tool set, creating grass using the fur procedural and a variety of creepers and vines on the island and the druid circle.

It will cover the basics of L-systems and will use that knowledge further to create plants, ferns and trees.

It will also cover the dynamics tool set such as RBD, creating custom forces to create the debris field, Fluids, particles and clouds, as well as the final material, lighting and compositing of the image.
