Keithtron posted a topic in EducationHi all! There's 1 week left to register for my Mastering Destruction 8-week class on CGMA! In supplemental videos and live sessions we'll be focusing on some of the awesome new features in Houdini 18, and exploring anything else you might be interested in, such as vehicle destruction. For those that haven't seen me post before, I'm an FX Lead at DNEG, and previously worked at ILM / Blue Sky / Tippett. Destruction is my specialty, with some highlights including Pacific Rim 2, Transformers, Jurassic World, and Marvel projects. I've also done presentations for SideFX at FMX/SIGGRAPH/etc, which are available on their Vimeo page. If you have any questions, feel free to ask or drop me a message! https://www.cgmasteracademy.com/courses/25-mastering-destruction-in-houdini https://vimeo.com/keithkamholz/cgma-destruction
DNEG have shared open source tool for vdb operations. If somebody already checked this, will be nice to hear comments. https://www.dneg.com/openvdb-ax/ https://github.com/dneg/openvdb_ax OpenVDB AX is an open source C++ library that provides a powerful and easy way of interacting with OpenVDB point and volume data. This exposes an expression language to allow fast, custom manipulation of point attributes and voxel values using a collection of mathematical functions. Expressions are quickly JIT-compiled and to offer great performance that in many cases rival custom C++ operators. It is developed and maintained by DNEG Visual Effects, providing a flexible and portable way to work with OpenVDB data.
