Must reads for any students planning/currently taking VSFX 428/728: Note that scale is important! SCALE IS IMPORTANT!

Specific Tutorials related to particle flip fluids

Below under the topic Particles in Dynamics I go thru the particle workflow as of Houdini 13.0 and up.

Also highly recommended tutorials (although they are older, they still have good information):


As of Houdini 13.0, particles are fully integrated into the dynamics workflow.
Since Houdini 12.5 OpenVDB volumes have been integrated and appear in numerous places.
The new cloud tools use them but also the FLIP fluid tools use the openVDB volumes to surface particles in place of the particle fluid surface SOP. Click on the links below for more information.
