Houdini Engine for Cinema 4D - Introduction and Best Practice

Helge Maus (pixeltrain)

The Houdini Engine gives Cinema 4D artists access to the power of the VFX and simulation multi-talent Houdini FX. Digital assets created in Houdini FX can be opened directly in Cinema 4D. Files can be exchanged between both applications and fine-tuned using the available options.

In this workshop, Helge Maus shows how to set up digital assets in Houdini FX and how to integrate complex particles, fluids and fracturing simulations. Helge will also cover special workflows for rendering volumetrics such as clouds using OpenVDB and ARNOLD renderers.
