  1. I'm new to VEX, and I am having a hard time remembering the functions, conditions etc. I guess I need more practice, but how can I get good at using them in create ways to solve problems better?
  2. Some new Course!
  3. Hey guys, im looking to step up my pyro/fluid understanding and study Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) since i already got an engineering background. My question, is CFD preferable to learn for computing simulations in houdini? Or maybe another branch of fluid calculations that i know not of? Thanks.
  4. Hey Guys. I made this little quicktip video about collision optimization. Have a watch if you fancy.
  5. Abstract Visuals - Houdini and Redshift Link: http://bit.ly/2ZFfdti This course is about the creation of visual abstract effects in Houdini. At the same time, this course is also about Redshift for Houdini. Things we create together: abstract lines, geometric shapes, crystals out of this world and an ornametal structure. At the end of this course we are going through a pdg pipeline for redshift. I'm looking forward to the course! See you in the course! Tim
  6. Hello, I'm asking to this forum because I didn't find real answers about my education problem. I am a french student in 2nd year of 3D Generalist, and since 3 years I know i would like to be a VFX Artist, using Houdini. So I train myself regularly and render some works. Before I came to this school, I asked if there was Houdini course and they told me yes you will have it if you come. Then in first year they told me it will be in 2nd year. Then when I came in 2nd year they told me it will be in 3rd year and we'll have 8 hours a week. Then 1 week ago they told me it will be only 4h30. I'm disapointed because I came to this school for working my FX skills. We do great stuff for everything, but I don't want to be a rigger, a chara designer or an animator. I'm afraid to stay in this school, because I know I could work on myself on Houdini and don't pay thousands of bucks for skills I will never use (Except rendering and lighting stuff). I'm also afraid to leave the school if I couldn't find work (Even if we don't need a diploma for this stuff, in France it matter more than in other countries). So next year we will have only 4h30 a week for 15 weeks. Then we will work on our grade movie and it will be cool for Houdini. But does it worth it ? I would like to have your opinion.
  7. Howdo Im looking for some advice. Im teaching at a small private school in Vancouver, and its coming upto final project time. Unfortunately rendering on their workstations isnt quite going to cut it when it comes to crunch. I was wondering what experience other education houses have had with various providers, setup, their support lines and bang for buck. Did you need to have a seperate holding server for up/downloads There is only a handful of students so we wouldnt be sending the volume of data some of the larger schools can for big discounts. And as well as Houdini educational edition it would have to support maya too, but i think most do anyway Any help/thoughts greatfully received Ed

  12. Hello guys. I was wondering if you have any recomandations for places to learn, like websites, youtube channels, vimeo channels, news, blogs, anything useful, that gets updated often. I was thinking it would be a good idea to share sites from which we learn. If you're self-educated, you'll know how important Lester Banks (http://lesterbanks.com) or the FxHive channel is. I can't thank these guys enough. One of my favorites are the Entagma guys, but i guess everyone knows them, they are famous now Also, because i come from C4D, i get a lot of inspiration from Beeple, i've heard he's also famous

You’ll get the most out of this course when you’re brand new to Houdini, but still have a basic understanding of general 3D concepts. We’ll start with the first time you ever launch Houdini and walk through creating an awesome effects shot. Along the way, you’ll learn some of the most powerful aspects of this node-based software such as the key concepts of the Houdini user interface, basic geometry manipulation and polygon modeling. We'll also explore how to import geometry, create custom user interfaces, apply materials and manipulate UVs. We’ll get our feet wet in each step of the pipeline, including modeling, animation, dynamics, lighting and rendering to construct a dramatic FX shot using rigid bodies and fractured geometry. By the end of this Houdini training, you’ll be able to dive into the other amazing Houdini content in our library with confidence. Thanks everyone and I hope you have a great weekend! -johnCrief

  17. Hello everyone this is my new training, hope you like it, more in formation on www.hossamfx.org . from https://vimeo.com/user44594439 on https://vimeo.com. This training focuses on how to create procedural nerve cells system in Houdini. It covers the using of many Houdini nodes in the SOPs level, like the for-each loop, vop nodes, polygonal nodes, using attribute’s nodes and creating geometry based on attributes. The course covers various procedural modeling technics in the new versions of HoudiniFX using Houdini nodes without use scripting. The last result is system to generate nerve cells from any model like box or sphere or human head. This training aimed to the intermediate Houdini’s users. Hossam Aldin Alaliwi Regards !

  19. Lost Boys school of Visual Effects is very excited to announce their new FX TD full time program. Visual effects work and Houdini artists for feature film are in an ever increasing demand in the Vancouver Visual FX industry and worldwide.

The new FX TD program will be one of the most comprehensive diplomas offered in both Houdini and feature film FX in the world. The full time eight month program will guide the students through learning the general principles of fx work, 3D graphics, and compositing, all with a fully Houdini and FX centric range of projects, ranging from generalism, destruction, pyro and fluid simulation, to on the job computer sciences, and compositing for FX. The course will be taught by FX Industry veteran and Houdini author/trainer Andrew Lowell. Andrew has worked at numerous studios worldwide such as Rhythm and Hues, CIS Vancouver, Animal Logic, and Digital Domain. Andrew is experienced both in basics training / fundamental generalist methodology, as well as applying his practical FX industry experience to impart valuable production skills that are very sought after in formal education. Andrew was highly recommended for the program by SideFX (Houdini).

To achieve, this we balance production simulations (including filming plates), project driven disciplined exercises and technical demonstrations delivered by industry professionals.
