Huge thanks to SideFX for letting me present on their platform B)

Houdini is being used to create the new concept videos that explains the theory behind complex topics in illustrative style instead of using Photoshop. It takes a lot of time to create these low level tools in Houdini that mimics a 2d presentation style but the benefits far weigh the efforts spent.

It creates better consistency, higher quality of presentations, opens a lot more doors for getting ideas across, i.e. having animated presentations that wouldn't be possible using standard painting apps. This alone makes it possible to explain a lot more in less screen space since everything is live Houdini geometry.

These low level tools still need a lot of work before I can fully utilize them but here is a sneak peak from Pragmatic VEX: Volume 2 concepts (WIP, color theme pending changes):


It's highly likely all the concept chapters of Pragmatic VEX: Volume 1 will be recreated using the same Houdini tools sometime in the future once the tools are finalized.
