  1. Hope, all of you are having a wonderful Sunday :) I have some great news to share today: a complete 5-volume discounted bundle of Houdini Procedural Lake Houses is now available on Gumroad! It is something that has been asked about a lot, and I'm happy to finally include this option. Enjoy and, as usual, big thank you! You are awesome.

  3. Hi, everyone! I hope, you had amazing Christmas and New Year and it brought you many happy moments and new experiences.

    For me, it was a great time to continue sharing more knowledge with you and I'm very excited to announce that Volume 4 is out now and available on gum.co/sVtLq :)

    PS: I have received some very nice updates on what people are doing with the course and it is very inspiring to see that you bring some of your own creative charge into the tutorial! Thank you for the feedback and I hope to see some more amazing examples

    I guess this tutorial not for beginner. 

    I don't understand what's happen because you do too quickly and not in basic.

    Anyway, I don't familiar and new with VEXpression.

    So this course is too difficult for me. Sorry but I must say that.

    I hope you can put a knowledge required to understand this course.

    Thank you






    No worries :) I understand

    I mention in the promo that I expect a good knowledge of Houdini UI and some basic knowledge of VEX (or checking official documentation before starting) as indeed I never stop to explain that, otherwise, the course would simply be beyond my scope. As well as on SideFX website, I marked the series as "Intermediate".

    Hope, one day it won't seem too difficult to you anymore ;)

    Awesome to see these on gumroad! One question,  is the 4th volume only free to people who purchased on CMIVFX?

    Hi Aaron,

    That is correct, the 4th volume will be free only for people who made a direct purchase of all 3 volumes on cmivfx (no subscriptions). It is my way of compensating (as the tutorials are now cheaper on gumroad than they were on cmivfx) and saying "thank you" :)

  6. Exciting times and a big update: the tutorials are now released through gumroad (https://gumroad.com/anopara), which is great news as it will be cheaper and I will be able to maintain the content directly J The volumes on cmivfx will be removed. If you bought the tutorial through cmivfx earlier, write to me (I can find you in the database or show me the receipt), and I will give you an access to the volumes you purchased free of charge on gumroad. If you have bought all 3 existing volumes on cmivfx, you are awesome, and when 4th volume comes out, it will be a gift for you!

    Thanks to you, guys, this is a great journey that pushes me to explore new things. Without your support, it wouldn't be possible. Wholeheartedly thank you, Anastasia

    Quoting the product page :)
    "A year in the making, cmiVFX releases volume 1 of a 5-volume, 17-hour mega-course showing...."



    There are 5 Volumes in total indeed :)

    anopara, looks great!
    I'll be purchasing with my next paycheck!
    I've long been amazed by Kim Goosen's roof generator... here, particularly how the roof elements seem really to cut off on the edges. Yours seem to just penetrate - which is fine for non-closeups. Do you show generation of cut elements ie. as one roof element cuts into another?


    Thank you, David! Yes, Kim's examples are always truly inspiring :)  

    I do not indeed account for the roofs intersection with another elements, as it was not my goal in this project. One of the goal was to automatocally generate roofs that recognize its relationship with the building and the roofs-neighbours. Based on those parameters, the height and elevations are calculated and the merging is determined. 

    I have a trick there how I account for intersection of the building blocks, when creating the silhouette. But I'm not sure it will work on the roofs.

    Hope, that answers your question :) And if you have any other questions when following the tutorial, do not hesitate to contact me here or mail me at anastasiaopara@gmail.com
