An introductory workshop on using noise to artistically direct your scene. While the course starts at an introductory level later topics will need an intermediate knowledge of Houdini. Topics covered include what is the difference between random and noise functions. Creating a drunken walk algorithm. Contiguous and non-contiguous noise, the different types of noise functions in Houdini, and how to shape noise. We will then discuss a workflow to displace geometry in VOPSOPs using noise functions in Houdini. Once the workflow is understood we will translate the same workflow into creating materials and finally volumes.
