Have a look at a new digital asset for Houdini called Ivy Taming. The asset is said to let users grow, style, and animate ivies from point seeds on any closed polygonal object.

Documentation

Main Features

  • artistic control: custom curves, mask painting
  • physical control: gravity, light, branching
  • collision-free: collisions are avoided by progressive decimation
  • custom shapes: use any shape for leaves with control over their distribution
  • build up: curves for lianas, packed prims for leaves, and plenty of attributes, are all exposed to let you design your own growth animation or. e.g. to send to vellum

Files Included :

  • MC_IvyTaming_GeoGuide.hda : to create guide geometry
  • MC_IvyTaming_Core.hda: to create your ivy (closed-source)
  • MC_IvyTaming_Anim.hda: an example for post-animating the ivy
  • IvyTamingExample.hip: an example file

Requirements

  • Houdini 16.5 +
  • Beginner knowledge of Houdini
  • for huge collision-free scenes, you need a beefy rig
  • An Internet Connection while using the product (license checks)
