This class will help you become very comfortable with using data to creatively direct any visual effect. The instructor for this course is Stephen Tucker, a Product Specialist. We are pleased to have Stephen visiting from Toronto's Side Effects Software office. Stephen plays a large role in the creation of Houdini demo animations, tutorials and the shaping of Houdini's tools.

  3. SESI Class: Sprites in Houdini

    Some of the classes are recorded, but mostly for internal use/documentation. The recordings are not clean/good enough for distribution. Hopefully sometime in the future this will change. On the plus side SESI is working hard to post more tutorial videos online. http://www.sidefx.com/index.php?option=com...&Itemid=132 Also more and more companies are creating video tutorials. http://www.sidefx.com/index.php?option=com...&Itemid=306
  4. Unfortunately. Not this time. Class has been cancelled. Instructor has become unavailable... Busy schedule.
