Efficient use of PDG systems / AUTOMATED Workflows
This tutorial starts from an empty houdini scene, walks you through the terrain system to prepare a base for your city.
Then goes in depth on creating procedural buildings, just from a few primitive shapes , which eventually ends up with a SCI-FI style procedural building with windows, floors and interior walls and more. Resulted mesh is RBD and Fracture friendly so can be used in many other scenery.
This is truly a massive Tutorial where efficiency meets mastery which enables a Home Computer to be able to ralize such a scene, where massive farms were needed back in 2012 Days.
