Intro to Particles

Lesson 2 of 4 Houdini Particles

We’re going to dive into Houdini’s POP network and learn the basics of particle simulations. Here, you’ll become familiar with the core components of our dynamics system, including emitters, forces, colliders, and more. We’ll then use these skills to take into the next lesson to create more advanced systems.
