Points, Primitives and Vertices Houdini

Head on over to Matt Estela’s CGWiki and read this in depth article he wrote on Houdini’s use of points, vertices, and primitives and why points in Houdini are a big deal. I’m sure you will learn a thing or twenty. While you are at it, support his Patreon so he can continue creating great Houdini learning material.
