Course Description

Check out a few Houdini 17 related updates here:

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 III, we will target exactly which Mantra, light, and shader settings you will need to know about in order to produce quick, hi quality renders. Being able to sacrifice minimal quality while gaining massive time savings will be critical to iterating quickly on shots through development, and then switching over to making a great image when you're done without running out of time. We will also talk about rest texture noise and the shader in general, without which we will not be able to produce photoreal results. Finally, we will learn about scattering and viewing the effects of individual lights in different images, for use with debugging and more importantly later, compositing.
