New Houdini animation tools

Some pretty interesting stuff coming out from SideFX.

(For anyone unfamiliar with Houdini, the term “SOPs” refers to the most common Houdini context used for modeling, manipulating points and polygons, etc)


The whole keynote was great. I missed this start. Points and edges geometry-like SOPs rigging. Procedural or interactive retargeting. Very cool!

I started learning object-level rigging this summer, but I’m glad I didn’t get too far, now that this has arrived.

I like how some of the new pyro SOP helpers create geometry. And so does the motionclip SOP. This has the potential for some really cool deformed temporal kind of stuff, motion effects, etc. Dang…
