Houdini Tutorial | Volcanic Eruption

This tutorial mainly focuses on Pyro simulation, and involves various pyro simulations like the volcanic plume, the volcanic bombs, sparse smoke in the air, shockwave smoke, smoke and fire spreading on the terrain, and smoke from rolling rocks, to give you an in-depth understanding of Pyro. Due to the step-by-step nature of Pyro simulations, it’s also suitable for beginners. Besides, there are more modules included, such as Height Field, FLIP simulation on lava creation, RBD simulation on terrain destruction, scene assembly, material, lighting, rendering, and compositing, etc, which gives you an overall knowledge of Houdini. In the scene assembly section, a large number of elements of optimization, processing, placement, complex lighting process, and rendering in layers, all of those can definitely give the learners who want to create epic large-scale scenes an enlightening guidance.

Blender Addon | HairClump

HairClump is a Blender add-on that parametrically controls the randomness of hair shapes. Multiple controls based on clumps—length control, kink control, and other various controls—makes it easier for users to style a complex hair shape through the simple guides.

Blender Addon | Hair Extension ToolKit

Hair_Extension_Toolkit is an add-on that highly enhances the controllability of the hair in Blender. There are many practical functions, like merging and splitting particle systems, resetting the number, steps, and length of the guides, applying the effect of children to the guides, recording the hair selections (There is a PieMenu about hair selections), etc., thus greatly helping users improve the efficiency of the creation of the hair.

Blender Addon | Hair Shape Key v5.2

HairShapeKey is a Blender add-on, supporting adding shape keys of hair, making it possible to record the transition between multiple shapes of hair-like models. Users can switch between the different shapes freely, keyframe animation, and set driver control, which makes it more controllable to style hair. Just have a try!

Details Capture | Photometric Stereo

Details Capture is software for creating textures with professional photometric stereo techniques, capturing high-quality albedo, normal map, and displacement map from multiple images taken from the same angle of view with lights from different angles. And it is capable of capturing subtle details on the surface of objects and is mainly used to scan fabric, leather, leaves, etc. with far greater efficiency, higher quality, and lower cost than photogrammetry.

3D Animal | Asian buffalo Animated

This is a 3D model of realistic Asian buffalo with complete maps, fur, rigging, and walking animation. There are multiple maps in the UDIM format. The body map and skin map are made separately for some realism. This model is made with Blender 2.81 and Cycles Renderer at real-world scale. If you delete the fur, you need to use the fur map as the skin map, which is also a good look.

3D Animal | Cheetah and Young Cheetah

These are realistic 3D models of cheetah and young cheetah made by Blender and Cycles renderer, with complete texture, fur, rigging, and animation of walking, running, and trotting, including multiple 4K maps in UDIM format. The head map is made separately for some realism and UDIM UV maps are applied. ID map and Matte map are made to control the color of hair accurately. 

3D Animal | Bison Male Animated

This is a high-quality bison model with a complete armature, sculpting in part, rigging, and hair, as well as multiple 4K texture maps, made in real-world scale by Blender2.82a and rendered by Cycles renderer. The map of the body applies UDIM UV. The maps of body, skin, and hair are made separately, which makes the effect more realistic.

3D Animal | German Shepherd

This is a realistic German Shepherd model, including multiple 4K maps, rigging, animation, and fur. The body maps, which are in the UDIM format, and fur maps are made separately to get a more realistic effect. This model is made with Blender at real-world scale and rendered by Cycles renderer.

3D Animal | Golden Snub-nosed Monkey Animated

This is a realistic 3D model of a golden snub-nosed monkey with multiple 4K maps, rigging, animation, and hair. The skin map and the fur map of the body are made separately, which makes the character more realistic. The character is made with Blender and Cycles renderer at real-world scale.
