Midweek Motivation: Houdini/C4D/Redshift – Jeep Driving Through Mud

Freelance Houdini FX artist Tim van Helsdingen likes to create stuff in 3D that looks as if it was shot in real life, and would have taken a lot less time too. Here’s he shows off a Jeep driving through a muddy forest road, made with Houdini, Redshift and Cinema 4D.

About this project, Tim van Helsdingen says, “In my every continuing journey in making stuff in 3D that I could have just as well shot in real life in a fraction of the time I preset you a jeep that drives through a muddy forest road.

“I'm actually pretty happy with how well this turned out. Learned a lot making this, also pretty happy with how well redshift handles these incredibly heavy scenes (couple of GB of assets a frame)

“Included a nice breakdown so you can see how it all came together.”
