Check out cmiVFXs new Houdini Automotive Drifting video!

cmiVFX is delighted to bring you the final Houdini Craft Rigging and Animation video in this series. One of most exciting effects in vehicle motion is drifting, and in this video we'll use particles to make vehicles drift just like in real life. Be ready to learn a lot about particles! NOTE TO VIEWERS: DIGITAL ASSET SOURCE CODE INCLUDED!!! We'll start by exploring the concept of drifting, and then we'll begin creating the simulation. Next we'll add the parameters necessary for this effect, like the rotation angle and the value of the road friction force where the vehicle is traveling. You can make the road slippery or rough. The motion that we'll have at the end will be procedural. Without this approach it would take a very long time for you to do this manually, but with this technique it's done by simply hitting the "skid brake" key on your keyboard. This is very useful knowledge for any animator or CG artist. The use and combination of different Houdini contexts is awesome and you have mos t likely never seen this approach in any other Houdini lesson. Enjoy!
