This training demonstrates how to use Houdini to create a parametric vehicle. Over the course of this training we will see how to use Houdini's basic polygon modeling techniques to create a fully controllable and procedural Vehicle model and also set up all the various parameters required to control and animate the vehicle.
The training will also explain how to add secondary jiggle motion to the vehicle animation using CHOPs.
Towards the end of the training we shall go through the animation, materials, lighting and rendering of the "Silence of the Vans" animation in which I had used the Procedural Vehicle.
Part 1 of this training will cover the basic modeling of the bus and detailing all the various sections of the bus. This part will also cover setting up the various modeling options for switching between a bus and a van.
