Houdini - Low-Poly to High-Poly Transformation Tutorial

In this tutorial, we’ll take a look at how to create a seamless, animated blend between a high-poly mesh and its low-poly representation in Houdini.

Topics covered include:

  • The start file
  • Creating a SDF
  • Re-projecting the points of the low-poly
  • Subdividing to generate a pseudo low-poly object
  • Re-projecting again to create a high-poly with the same topology
  • Creating a fall-off value
  • Transferring the fall-off value to the high-poly
  • Finding Barycentric Coordinates
  • Blending the positions
  • Blending the normals
