  3. Shading Techniques I

    Hello Odforce! I just released a new course - Shading Techniques I, and this one is all about improving your shading & texturing skills by exploring a variety of techniques. Part I mainly revolves around tri-planar workflows, and you'll also get an awesome wizard tower scene to practice with. Check it out a cgforge.com
  4. Shading Theory with Karma

    I'm happy to announce that I've teamed up with SideFX to release a new free course! - Shading Theory with Karma. These videos are designed to teach you the fundamental ideas behind shading/texturing while utilizing the principled shader, karma, and my dear friend - Shaderbot. Visit CG Forge to download shaderbot along with access to the videos for free. https://www.cgforge.com/course?courseid=shadingtheory Have a nice day,
  5. Pyro II - Flames & Sparse Pyro

    Yep! I have to add you in manually for now though because I'm still working on some backend/website things to automatically do it. So just shoot me an e-mail through the contact section, and I'll get you set up
  6. Pyro II - Flames & Sparse Pyro

    Hey Odforce! I just published a new course - Pyro II - Flames & Sparse Pyro. This course aims to uncover the main ideas behind the new sparse pyro solver by making a realistic fire simulation. If you've already bought the old version of Pyro II, then you'll automatically get this course for free! Check it out at https://www.cgforge.com/course?courseid=pyroii-sparse Cheers!
  7. Vex course

    Keep in mind that I have a biased opinion because I made Vex Foundations I & II, but here's why I'd recommend my course alongside CG wiki. Matt Estela has done an incredible amount of work. CG Wiki is very comprehensive, accurate, and full of many of the same ideas I teach in Vex Foundations I & II. Because of that, every Houdini TD ought to check it out because it's essentially $200-$300 worth of highly-skilled work provided for free. But - here's the catch - CG wiki is a collection of journal entries rather than a fluidly designed course. You don't get an awesome looking project, course files, feedback, and help if you get stuck. And that can be important if you're trying to learn something that's a difficult topic such as coding in Vex. It's not just reading what the content is - it's about how the content is taught. If you're someone with a computer science background, then Vex Foundations I and II is probably not for you. It's probably quicker and easier to just go through Matt's wiki, and then you can take what you already know about C-style languages from there. If you're 3D artist though - Vex Foundations I and II is the most approachable introduction to vex that you'll find anywhere online. And that might be difference between you getting frustrated and giving up on it vs. getting past that initial learning curve. So my advice is to do both. Check out Matt's wiki after you go through vex I and II. It'll be way easier to read through it, and by the end that, you'll be exposed to two different teachers teaching you concepts which aren't easy to get at first. Good luck! - Tyler
  8. Karma & LOPs - CG Forge

    Hello ODforce! I just added a new Houdini 18 update to my course, "Houdini for the New Artist" that goes over the basics of LOPS and Karma with Houdini 18: In the near future, I'll be adding more updates to my other courses which you can find at www.cgforge.com Happy holidays! - Tyler
  9. Pyro II - Flames & Combustion

    For the full course, visit https://www.cgforge.com/course?courseid=pyroii Thanks for watching!
  10. Quaternions & Matrices

    Thanks for the heads up! This annoying problem has a happened a couple times. It's looking for 'www.' in the website name: here's a revised link: https://www.cgforge.com/course?courseid=quaternions-matrices Thanks for watching!
  11. Pyro I - Smoke & Steam

    Check out the course at: https://www.cgforge.com/course?courseid=pyro-i Thanks for watching!
  12. Quaternions & Matrices

    For the full course, visit : https://www.cgforge.com/course?courseid=quaternions-matrices In this quick tip, we take a look at a practical example which takes advantage of both quaternion and matrix (and/or Euler) based rotation.
  13. Matrices - CG Forge - Quicktip

    For more tutorials, check out cgforge.com In this quick tip, I talk about matrices. If you've ever wondered about what a matrix is, and how they can be useful, then you'll love this introduction to the topic. Thanks for watching!
  14. Check out www.cgforge.com for more tutorials. In this quick-tip, we learn about curved particle motion blur whenever you're rendering with redshift. Curved motion blur can be a pretty big deal if you're trying to achieve certain effects, and with Houdini / Redshift, it's pretty easy to accomplish once you know how it works. Thanks for watching!
  15. CG Forge - Vex Foundations I

    I recently finished building my new website - cgforge.com It's a website focused on quality - offering only the best 3D tutorials in one place. Check out early access to my next course: Vex - Foundations I Thanks for watching!
