1. Kinda sick so my voice is weird - also realised I say basically way too much >.>

    Anyway this one's about creating a controller to make the bolts flicker on and off over time, all procedural!
    Next time I will be making a Lightning Solver to make the bolts animate over their lifetime, to create some even more interesting/realistic animation.

  2. HELLO! (the first couple seconds of audio didn't record so pretend I said that first ;) )

    In this tutorial I cover creating some procedural bolts of lightning in Houdini - making them animate - and making them connect to a surface.
    Stay tuned for part II where I will cover animating clusters of bolts, turning them on and off, and building controllers for the whole setup.
