Abstract

This thesis presents methods for creating visually interesting environmental visual effects using Houdini. Four different types of environmental effects are shown: Dust trails, Waterfall mist, Snow, and Underwater dust. Each of these effects emulate real world phenomena, but also have the ability to be artistically driven to fit the visual artist’s need.
