In this course we, will learn how to setup a complex crowd simulation in Houdini with ragdoll effects. We will begin with setting up our agents and begin to use custom animations. Along the way we will create several behaviors for our crowd and setup states, triggers, and transitions. By the end of this course, you will have a fully working crowd scene with hundreds of agents, ragdoll effects, and customizations at render time using stylesheets. Software required: Houdini 15.
