I just based my landscape material on this. I just wish I could exactly figure out what is going on with normals, ao and displacement here.

That was extremely helpful! Thank you!

Tutorial: Corrosive Acid in Houdini & Redshift
4 December, 2017

Check out another nice guide on mixing Redshift and Houdini from Tim van Helsdingen. The 1,5-hour tutorial focuses on building corrosive acid effect.

And here is the final result:

Inspired by the awesome erosion effect by Dave Stewart I wanted to see if I could create a similar effect.
So I made some acid that burns through a metal plate. Pretty happy with the way it’s working. 
I’m using vdb erode in a sopsolver/solver which is driven by the flip sim.

Using another sop solver to create a wetmap to drive erosion materials in redshift. Using curvarure for worn edges, and the new triplanar projection to map the textures/normal maps. Overall it was 3 materials blended together for the metal.
