pixar fx dept using houdini?

Recommended Posts

I heard a rumor the other day that pixar's fx dept had recently switched over to a houdini centric pipe.. can anyone confirm or deny this? it'd be interesting to know and a nice bump for sesi if true. obviously, there's gonna be a lot of proprietary stuff going on, but still cool nonetheless..

There's at least one Pixar guy that frequents the Houdini Mailing List.

Wow, I haven't been on the listserv for a loooong time.. I should get back in to that.. Anyways, that one guy wouldn't happen to be George ElKoura by any chance would it? He was an engineer at sesi for a while and I believe he's been at pixar r&d for the last few years.. Maybe I should shoot him an email and see if he's heard anything..

I know he went to work there, but I have no idea whether his role had anything to do with Houdini. It's Michael O'Brien that I'm thinking of.

They definitely picked up one of Sony's Sr. Houdini FX guys, so it wouldn't be surprising.

Ah, Cody is there now? Would be nice if Pixar have Houdini in their pipeline.
