Intro to FX using Houdini will give an exciting introduction to a variety of FX capabilities in Houdini. This course is designed to focus on VFX that are commonly called for in the film industry today. We will go over procedural modeling, fluid FX, particles FX, rigid body destruction, smoke, and lighting & rendering. Each week we will focus on a certain procedural aspect, while maintaining a wider perspective of Houdini’s incredible capabilities. This course will strengthen your practical knowledge in VFX, and give you a greater understanding of Houdini’s common uses in VFX companies.
*Note: Students can still take the course with a computer that has less performance, but the computations will take longer and some simulation won’t be as high resolution due to RAM limitations.
Houdini’s Apprentice education edition software is available as a free download, and is all you will need to take this course.
