Entagma - Creating Paint Smearing simulation with Houdini

Entagma has recently demonstrated a new simulation tutorial, using Houdini, on how to achieve an animated paint smear look.

It was a request from one of their Patreon (on how to pull off beautiful paint smears as Malaki Molasses Advertisement.)

In this step-by-step tutorial, Mortiz Schwind from Entagma explains the following:

  • The scene will consist of three elements.
    • Emitter (emitting fluids into the scene).
    • Collider (as the brush to move fluid in the scene).
    • A dot net (simulating the whole setup).

Enjoy watching this 15-minutes of a complete set by step tutorial below:
