Happy new year everyone!

I know that many have been thirsty for more tutorials, etc on Houdini's 

Andrew Lyons gave a presentation to the San Francisco Houdini User Group 
which was held at Pixar studios in October 2010.  In this video he 
presents a solution to the problem of how to create a large number of 
moving contained fluids.  He's recently been given permission to share 
this with us all.

The final system demonstrates how Houdini's unique procedural tools can 
be used to create automated solutions to VFX challenges that might 
otherwise require costly dynamic simulations. The system draws on a 
number of Houdini's operator contexts in order to do so.


Wishing you all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2011.   :-)
