Houdini and Python notes

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


This is my first post here and I wanted to introduce myself and share my notes! I'm 20 years old, from Argentina, and I have been studying in Denmark for the last 2 years. So far I have been learning every aspect of the pipeline, but some months ago I decided FX was my favourite thing and I decided to start learning Houdini.


I still have a long way to go, I'm barely scratching the surface, but since I started learning 3D I have been writing down notes of everything I learn and they have got quite big now, and some friends suggested it would be a good idea to make them public and share them. I wanted to share the Houdini and Python ones here.


They are quite basic and I'm no expert, so don't take everything you read as a fact! I use it mostly to force myself to understand it better by writing it down. Most of it can be useful for beginners though! It is mostly a mix of workflows, explanations of concepts, examples of how to do a certain thing, and useful documentation notes that I copied just so I can have everything in one place. Note that I keep updating it every week! I often read through it and rewrite stuff that I realize was completely wrong :P and just keep adding more stuff. 


The first 30 pages I think are sorted out, the rest is still a bit messy and I have to write it down properly. Anyway here is the link:




For the last 3-4 months I have also been learning Python, that one is a bit more complete, so if you are interested in it, here is the link:




And this last one is the complete folder with all the documents of everything I have learned, so you can find notes about Maya, Mari, 3DEqualizer, zBrush, Arnold and the VFX pipeline and my workflow.




I hope these are useful for anyone and I am looking forward to learning a lot from everyone in the forums!
