Hi everyone! It's the v1 of my new serie of videos: 3D Dominoes Falling!

It was fun to create to continue improving my skills of Houdini (from SideFX) with Rigid body, Procedural modeling and Dynamics...

Well, it's a VERSION ONE (V1), in future next versions, there will be more dominoes put on more different supports, more mechanisms to make beautiful and crazy transitions between dominoes rows, and perhaps some VFX (fire? smoke? fluid?)...
It's not really enough for an ASMR video but it's a beginning and it's fun to watch it... ;-)

Dominoes falling simulation with Houdini was very quick, only few minutes with my AMD Ryzen 9 3900X...
But for the texturing and renders, I finally used Cycles renderer (from Blender 2.82) because it's really faster than Mantra from Houdini ! Only 19 hours of rendering with my big PC (see below for the setup...) 😉

Anyway, have fun with this video and enjoy! 😉 😆
