I’m starting to transition from Softimage to Houdini and felt like a good first step was to try to recreate the “modulate by null” ICE compound that I use so often in my day-to-day motion graphics jobs. In this video I go through the steps taken to create the digital asset. After that I work through a few real-world applications.

Sorry for such a long video, and by all means, all you experienced Houdini users, please offer your suggestions / corrections for anything I’m doing wrong.

You can download the digital asset here:
