It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident.

Course Description

In this online course, the viewer will learn how to use Houdini’s Height Field tools to generate terrains and geometry, aimed for environment creation.
Not only will the most used Height Field nodes will be explained, but also we will take an in-depth look at how the tools work, what kind of information is expected as input and how to make the most out of the information output from these tools.

This course has been designed for beginner to intermediate Houdini users, or anyone interested in leveraging Houdini’s powerful terrain tools to create environments for Matte Painting, Illustration, Games, Architecture or simply generating digital art.

After viewing this course, people can expect to be able to fluently use the Height Field tools to create almost any kind of terrain imaginable, being realistic, stylized or even geometric or abstract.

The main takeaways after viewing this tutorial are:

- Thorough understanding of how Height Fields work within Houdini

- A complete understanding of the process of terrain creation from modeling to compositing.

- Ability to model very detailed terrains using Houdini’s native tools.

- Ability to create extremely accurate and realistic terrains using real-world data.

- Understanding of how to output generated terrains as geometry and images for use in external and third-party applications.

- A basic understanding of how to composite a multi-layer render.
