Heya,

We have a few shots in our short film that i'm looking to get some input on. There are 2 shots - A spaceship crashing into the moon surface, and another of it sliding and coming to a rest. Im am mainly a Maya guy but am slowing get the hang of Houdini.

Having a play around in both Maya and Houdini the are a few options to deal with this - and Im looking for thoughts on how to create a dynamic moon surface can provide an impact effect like this:

So far I've dabbled with rigid cloth tests for ground deformation on a slide and flip fluids for the impact (but the retention of shape has got me a bit baffled)..

Any body have experience with such an effect shot and able to provide some guidance - that would be awesome.

Ollie
