Houdini Quickstart Tutorials – More Finishing Touches

Coming towards the end of the tutorial I needed to include a grid which is in place of the ground plane that in these screenshots is hidden. i had to use the grid tool on the shelf and then assign a material to it this was easily done by selecting the grid and then pressing assign colour in the material palette as so.

Another stage in creating the grid was to scale it up to make it appear bigger so I set it to 50, 50 and then changed the colour the base colour of the grid using the material settings however one problem I did occur was that the grid did not appear to take the colour red that I set to it in the Houdini scene however rendered it is displayed as red so it did work in the end.
