Houdini Look Development and Lighting Props

This is a set of props that should be useful for anyone looking to do any look development and lighting in Houdini. The provided zip file contains a USD scene with all the dependencies and a Houdini scene file has also been provided for reference. The setup is also useful with both regular and ACES workflows, and compatible with Karma and Arnold.

This asset was created and kindly shared by FX TD and Houdini Instructor, Valentin DAVID, so a huge thanks to Valentin for sharing the content and allowing us to make it available for a wider audience.

The set includes:

  • Grey and chrome ball
  • Textured macbeth chart and slate
  • A stand
  • Wooden turntable
  • Fabric backdrop
  • 2 x studio HDRIs
