Course Description

Check out a few Houdini 17 related updates here: http://www.appliedhoudini.com/houdini-17-updates/

Applied Houdini is a production quality oriented series created by Steven Knipping, currently a Senior Rigid Body Destruction / FX Technical Director at Lucasfilm's Industrial Light & Magic (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Tomorrowland). Benefit from production proven workflows while also getting an in depth explanation of why things works they way they do. Best of all - each video is crammed with actual information and footnotes instead of gratuitous talking and dead space.

In Dynamics II, we will immediately move beyond the basics. Rather than start from a static volume, we will dynamically source turbulent density and velocity into our simulation. From there we will control our simulation with a variety of microsolvers including turbulence, disturbance, and diffusion, and even combine multiples of these together for even more advanced effects. Finally, we will talk about the effects that forces, divergence, and vorticity will have on the shape of things. As always, production oriented techniques will take priority and I'll even share a few of my favorite tips and tricks to achieve quality results faster and more efficiently!
