How to Create 3D Models For the Metaverse with the Asset Bash Houdini Digital Assets

Houdini Digital Assets Built On A Game Development Foundation

Our journey into the realm of 3D modeling tools began in 2011 when we set out to create game assets for Cry Engine. At that time, Houdini Digital Assets were known as Operator Type Libraries, marking a significant revelation for the industry. Houdini lived up to its promise, offering the ability to create truly reusable tools. Since 2011, these tools have found applications in diverse fields, from building Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality Applications to creating content for Virtual Production and Live Events.

These powerful tools were developed by Jordan Halsey, a veteran with over 25 years of experience in 3D Design and Production. Jordan is an educator, teaching Houdini, Unreal Engine, and Projection Mapping at the prestigious University of Southern California in the John C Hench School of Animation. Additionally, he serves as the director of The Ganek Immersive Studio, an XR-centered Lab in the School of Cinematic Arts.
