Turn photograph into whispy smoke

Recommended Posts


I'm fairly new to Houdini and was wondering if anybody can recommend a tutorial which could get me on my way creating an animated effect which dissolves a photo mapped to a grid into whispy smoke or ink.  Something like the image in the attached video.  Or alternatively could suggest a basic workflow just to get me started. 
Thanks kindly for the advice.

Hey man put together a quick file to explain how I would go about it, pretty simple hope it helps :)

To get the wispy smoke look - you'd need a lot of particles - or drive the particle movement from a smoke simulation for nicer movement
