Dusty Helicopter Landing

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

Been learning how to use Houdini for most of this year, I don't really get any opportunity to use it on a daily basis as I work mainly in Arch Viz currently so it's been a slow and steady evening/weekend schedule of learning and tinkering.

 

This is my first finished project that hasn't been following a tutorial, there's so many gaps that you learn to fill when working on something of your own rather than a tutorial so it was quite the learning curve but hugely fun at the same time.

 

Thanks for reading/watching!

I think it looks great. But wait no one is at the controls ahhh!

 

How did you handle/setup the rotor blur?

Haha it's one of those remote controlled helicopters...  :lol:

 

The rotor blur was pretty simple actually I just ticked the motion blur flag on the object, and I added a parameter on the object for the xform time samples to override the scene setting since it was moving so fast it needed a higher sample rate.

 

The animation for the rotors was even easier, just put $FF in the rotation and multiplied it by a high number until it looked good.
