Hi Lincoln, Thanks for this. I found it incredibly informative. Could I ask you a question about your wind + plant movement? Is there any way to stop it looking like the plants are rooted in moving water. I find it horribly distracting and pulls me out of my suspension of disbelief. Cheers, Tudor

Lovely work ! You mentioned "When lighting the scene, I used Light Functions to create the illusion of light passing through clouds, thus lighting the environment unevenly" do you think you could show what is the setup to get such a precise result ?(meaning highlight the area you want?)

Flux 2.0 - Improved Modeling with Booleans in Houdini
31 May, 2017

Flux 2.0, a free update for all users of a modeling toolset for Houdini 16.0, is coming. Alexey Vanzhula is teasing fans of the tool with videos featuring previews of upcoming features. 

Here is glimpse at v2.0:

“What is Flux,” you may ask. It is a toolkit that drastically improves modeling with Booleans in Houdini.


The project features:

  1. Procedural hard surface modeling with soft blended boolean operations
  2. Retopology toolset widget


  • Boolean operations: Union, Subtract, Intersection, Contour
  • Smooth beveling with flatness factor and variable radius
  • Vertex normals with relax feature
  • Interactive creation and setup
  • Special primitive type node that creates quadric geometry. It is a building blocks for flux blend operations. Has mirror and deformation built-in functionality. Can also be used to add thickness to polygon curves. This allows to use curves in flux operaions
  • Retopolgy tools widget. Allows using any modeling tool with TopoBuild SOP
  • Additional simple tools: Quick Copy, VDB Remesh, Bake Geometry

Previous versions in action:



  • All documentation is in the parameters tooltips. They are described in great detail. Just move mouse to parameters and read what they do
  • All the tools you can find in ‘Modeler’ tab menu
  • Maya and other DCC applications is not supported. You can play with it on your own risk. But best way is using Houdini and export geometry to your DCC. All the benefits of interactivity is only inside Houdini
