Lately I've become facinated by SideFX Houdini with its powerful simulation tools and procedural workflow. Combined with the Houdini link now built into C4D it opens up a world of possibilities. However, coming from C4D and trying to step into the world of Houdini, the task can be a bit confusing at first. Once getting familiar with Houdini's node graph and understanding its different contexts, the threshold definately becomes lower. I will continue to explore this powerhouse and hopefully I will be able to post one or two tutorials with some learning progress. SideFX have a great collection of tutorials on their site. Beyond that there are many other great artists willing to share their knowledge. Entagma and Rohan Dalvi have helped me alot. Make sure you check them out.
