VFX

The intended effects in this piece were a combination of all that I have learned in Houdini. As well as the pursuit of growth in their creation.

VFX: Rain
Rain System Test

An initial test into the rain system checking to see behavior and splash interaction.

White = Rain drops

Red = Splash

Blue = Run/Drip

Rain Sim 01

The first sim utilizing the fully animated geometry.

Wetmap Generation

100 frames from wetmap creation to be used in shading network.

Darker areas equate to wetter surfaces

Deck Splash Source
Based off Rain sim collision

**Please open in full screen for easier viewing**

Source has been slowed down for easier viewing

Red: Non-Selected

White: Source points (Rather small)

Rain + Deck Splash Combined

A combination between the rain and deck splash systems

VFX: Engine
Heat Distortion
Particle Velocity setup

Colored red and green to be later used in distortion channels

SIM Copied to Engines
