The Art of Creating fur, An Artist’s Approach to the Houdini Fur Module

Recorded in 1080 for clarity, this is a semi-comprehensive guide to working with Fur in Houdini 13. There have been many questions asked either on od|force or the SESI forums. Hopefully those same questions won’t crop up as often as they did.

Credit is due to Serg who came up with the method of optimizing shadows. And can be seen in this thread here – http://forums.odforce.net/topic/11770-rendering-fur-with-gi/
