  1. Rocket Bus - houdini training

    Hello everyone, The primary aim of this training is to provide a project that will take the viewer through as much of Houdini as possible. Letting them utilize all the various tools that Houdini provides for modeling and VFX to generate a detailed environment. Currently the training is available for redshift and octane. Next week, I'll be recording the mantra version. There is a 25% introductory discount in the entire training till 18th may 2019 Click on the link given below for more information http://www.rohandalvi.net/rocketbus
  2. Houdini 18 Wishlist

    Going to add a slightly silly request. A better render view, like corona , Redshift, octane or maxwell. Parameters for exposure, highlight compression, color balance, bloom and glare and loading .cube LUTs. It’s would be nice to have some postfx stuff inside the render view. Maybe just integrate some of the COP tools into the mplay.
  3. Some recent work

    Hi, Just posting some of my recent art. Most of it is houdini. Some is a mix of Houdini, Daz and Marvelous Designer. If you see a character, that's definitely from Daz. Everything is rendered in Octane. regards Rohan
  4. My hang glider ran away

    Always wanted to make a cloudscape. Rendered in Octane. About 48 mins on a single GTX 1080. 1600 x 2000 pixels.
  5. Introduction to Houdini series

    I'll try and avoid saying that.
  6. Introduction to Houdini series

    Hello Everyone, Happy New year I've been making a series of videos for beginners over the last couple of months. These require no prior knowledge of houdini. I've uploaded them to youtube as well since Youtube generates really good subtitles automatically. I'm putting the link below for the youtube playlist. I hope you find it useful. Houdini playlist regards
  7. Terrain Building in Houdini

    Hello Everyone, This training is will cover the new height field tools introduced in Houdini 16. The training comprises of 5 projects that will cover techniques to create a variety of terrains. Over the course of the projects the videos will cover a majority of the heightfield tools such as noise, pattern, mask by feature, heightfield layer, erode, heightfield wrangle etc. The training is available for Redshift, Arnold, Octane and Mantra.

  8. Neon Dreams - Overwatch fanart

    Hi, This would technically be my first fan art in Houdini. Usually I make all of my fan arts in Daz and use Houdini to do some additional modelling since you can't model in Daz. This time I went the other way around primarily because I wanted to try the new Hair tool in Houdini 16. Which, by the way, are fantastic. The character and clothing were posed in Daz and exported as obj to Houdini. Hair and the rest of the scene is Houdini. Skin and hair shader is custom because octane doesn't have a skin or a hair shader. For my next one I'll try the new auto rigging tools on Houdini.
  9. Introduction to Vex

    I have at least two more lessons planned. One which will deal with a little bit of trigonometry and another for particles. I'm going to see if I can come up with more stuff. if you have anything specific in mind let me know and I can plan accordingly.
  10. Introduction to Vex

    Hello everyone, This is a simple introduction to using Vex.
  11. Making Dessert in Houdini - Training

    Mainly I just wanted to create a training using the other renderers available for Houdini. That was the primary reason. The other reason was speed. Literally every major object in the scene has either SSS or absorption or both. Mantra is never happy with either of those things. I'm not saying it doesn't give the results . It just gives it really really slowly. Which is why for the initial bit I focused on the GPU renderers. I still might make a version for Mantra when I start working on the Arnold version. I just haven't decided yet. I guess you'll find out in May.
  12. Making Dessert in Houdini - Training

    Hi, The Arnold version will be released next month. Sometime in the beginning of May. I mention it in the promo. I'll mention it in the web page too, to avoid confusion.
  13. Making Dessert in Houdini - Training

    Hello Everyone, This training is an update to the Tea and Cookies training. The training covers fairly similar topics such as modeling, shading, lighting and rendering. The primary difference is that instead of Mantra the training focuses on using the third party render engines namely, Redshift, Octane and Arnold. The modeling part of the training covers a variety of techniques ranging from basic poly modeling, VDB, fluid simulations and even POP grains to build the scene. This shading and lighting part primarily focuses is on building all the various shaders required for the scene using a variety of procedural textures and bitmaps. The training will also cover SSS, displacement and building fluid shaders using absorption. We will also build relatively detailed metal and plastic shaders.

  14. Introduction to Arnold

    Hello Everyone, This is a fairly long introduction to Arnold in Houdini.
  15. Hello everyone, This training is a series of small projects that will cover the process of creating a variety of volumetric effects in Houdini and rendering them using Octane. This training is primarily focused on modeling and rendering custom volume effects. Over the course of this training I'll cover a variety of effects which include building and rendering clouds, making a pyro shader and using the blackbody emission to control the pyro shader. We'll also build custom volume effects such as a gas flame and a nebula. Finally we'll take a look at building controllable volume lights and volume fog. NOTE: Additional lessons for Redshift and Mantra will be added to this training towards the end of October. (They will be available separately for download depending upon your renderer of choice. These parts will be charged separately.) For further details click on the link given below http://www.rohandalvi.net/volumetrics
