Gain selection superpowers

It’s time to Master modelling. And that means being able to make precise selections of the components you need for each and every operation. Here, we’ll step you through all you need to know as you continue on this carefully structured learning path.

Like yin and yang, these two courses work in perfect harmony. In the first, you’ll develop crucial selection techniques for fast and efficient interactive modelling. In the second, you’ll learn all the procedural equivalents so you can put your modelling tasks on autopilot.

Continue learning Houdini the right way, and get a huge 15% saving by bundling both courses.

Houdini Geometry Essentials 07

Interactive Selections

36 video tutorials, 2 hrs 45 mins


Behind every great operation, there’s an important selection and Houdini gives you lots of options for making them directly in the viewport. Even though these direct selection tools are really powerful they don’t get much airtime. In this course we give them the attention they deserve. We’ll give you all the knowledge you need to make your selections quickly and efficiently, and in a classic interactive way. It’s all about building essential skills for direct modelling and editing in Houdini. By the end of this course, you’ll have a deep understanding of:

  • The need-to-know geometry selection tools, modes and hotkeys
  • The significance and nature of connected geometry in Houdini
  • The select by normal tool
  • The advantages and disadvantages of groups versus string attributes for saving selections
  • Using the groups and attributes list to inspect and select geometry components
  • How to get the most out of Houdini in an interactive mode (rather than procedural mode)

Procedural Selections: Groups

45 video tutorials, 3 hrs 33 mins


When it comes to procedural modelling, making the right selections is the hardest part, demanding every trick and technique in the book. Here, we'll give you the skills you need, providing a deep knowledge of Houdini’s procedural selection toolkit - the mighty Group SOPs. Soon, you’ll be generating procedural hard surface models with ease, plus you’ll have a stack of techniques you can use in FX and MoGraph workflows to boot! By the end of this course, you’ll have a deep understanding of:

  • All the essentials Group SOPs
  • The procedural counterparts to the interactive selection techniques covered in Geometry Essentials 07
  • Using group syntax to make procedural selections directly in group parameters
  • Using connectivity groups and connectivity attributes to define selection regions
  • Combining multiple grouping techniques for making complex procedural selections
  • The best practice selection workflows for effective procedural modelling
