In this session, you will learn how to use a node-based network to simplify complex tasks using Houdini’s procedural workflow. Topics include data flow, procedural animation, and expressions. We will use Pyro 2 to examine how shelf tools can be used to quickly lay down a network that yields excellent results. We will then explore the details of that network and learn how to modify the network to obtain a custom look.
