Strandbeest - Procedural Animation

Replicating Theo Jansen's Strandbeest, this work demonstrates procedural animation using HScript in Houdini. The movement was replicated by using a series of two-point constraints and ensuring the lengths of the poles were consistent with Jansen's. I am responsible for all aspects. A complete breakdown can be found in the pdf link below.
