Houdini Chop animation, from Peter Quint's tutorial here on Vimeo.

Added a few extra bits, including a spring CHOP to wobble the panels. A Filter CHOP to smooth the motion and added some Cookie SOPs to cut out a door and window.

Taking it further, i intend to build a roof in a similar way and maybe add some more elements like the SubPrime animation.

Many Thanks to Peter for his excellent Houdini tutorials, and to SideFX who gives hobbyists like me this awesome tool to play with.

Banks.
