The Introduction of the Tutorial
This is a Houdini waterfall tutorial, an advanced FLIP course with 10 episodes for over 2.5 hours, which includes terrain creation, FLIP simulation, whitewater source settings and whitewater simulation, materials adjustment, rendering, and compositing.
In this tutorial, we will first analyze the physical features of a reference, and then create it in Houdini by Height Fields, FLIP fluid, and Whitewater system. While simulating FLIP, we will detail some FLIP parameters, share the methods of adding FLIP surface details by noise, and optimize and convert FLIP to mesh with our own workflow. The part of whitewater simulation covers the explanation of some parameters as well as the methods of how to customize the source and how to deal with the whitewater further.
Throughout the whole process, we will demonstrate the operation step by step, and take you to discover and solve problems. You can not only master handy techniques, but also get practical experience and tips. Whether you only have some FLIP basics or already possess some Houdini experience, you will definitely benefit a lot after completing this tutorial.
