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.
