Oh dear.  I hope I don't make anyone feel that way.  My advice, as a 
somewhat baffled person, is that the stuff we're doing is pretty easy.  
Any apparent complexities you may encounter are failings of the UI 
design.  ;-)

Houdini makes math visceral - easy to get your fingers into.

Sweet!  I *do* like to make people feel that way!  ;-)

I've attached a pic.  I did the sequence for the Jan2000 cover of IEEE's 
Computer Graphics and Applications journal. I loved that it worked.  I 
love it when stuff works. :-)  I wonder if attachments to the list work.
