  1. Hello, I have a fiew questions regarding learning paths. I do like explosions, abstract stuff and verry highlevel of detail models I have started learning 3D and Houini and started at 1 May 2016 Before that i have only used Adobe After Effects and i also tried video co-pilot plugin named as Elemen 3D but in my eyes After Effects is not that good in 3D I did try a litle Cinema 4D where i did (based on tutorial) this animation: And now i am learning Houdini What am i on correct path if i want to create different stuff: Example: something is freezing up or something is blowing up or growing or all kinds of cool animations that you can fing on web. Or should i learn side by side somethign else? CInema 4D or Maya? My goal is to get to profecional level in futuure but note that i am learning everything on my own (no chanse for universiti or school) My goal is to learn and do all kinds of animations and VFX effects tat i am able to think in my mind. Often i have idea but not technical skills to create it. Here is the list of animations and effects that i have created. First 2 video clips (Created in Adobe After effects. Smoke animation) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbp6ZHnIvKc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RmjIZhLv0kg Video below is created also based on same method that i used on smoke animation but different effect and there i created question to one forum: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUuF1S5rh0M This animation is created in After Effects (here is scroll forward and back animation many times to show the effec many times) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ty_pOUjV7cY Video where i used Trapcode Particle effect https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHe1lQEDkY4 Here is one ongoing project in Houdini FX https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPhTS-0J3ks Here is animation i did using Houdini FX and Adobe After Effects https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ckgTBTvOk98 Here is animation i did in Real Flow and Adobe after effects. (Note resolution of object is low as i did render animation out low) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DGSzKeR2y0U This 3D animation is done using Cinema4 D and Adobe After Effects https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOby6S2KOvk And here are my latest animations(note all animations are only samples as i have not rendered out full animation. Those were only for test purpose): Black Mass ready: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEmzG45coAY Here is sample where i show animation and Houdin FX more in detail (Note noise at start of video is because my phone camera is damaged and i decided to record animation fast using phone) my question is am i on correct path. (learning only houdini) Or should i start learning also Maya or Cinema 4D? zbrush? At the moment i have to work on my IT Support job from Monday to friday 9am to 5pm and then 8 or 9pm i am at home and learn houdini untill 00:00 then i go sleep and next day i repeat. On weekends i usully sit behind PC and learn Houdini 10 hours So on total i learn Houdini on the week maximum 30 hours. I hope that in this way i am able to get some kid f level for 2018? Is this realistical?
