A richer CG industry
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 IV, we cover the scenarios for dust/smoke/steam/magic most often found in production work - destruction. We begin with basic fracturing and rigid body simulation, as well as secondary particle simulation. From these we can dynamically source volumes into our smoke sim with characteristics of the fracturing mesh itself. Advanced workflows for speedy collisions, accurate sourcing, and VEX language attribute manipulation are covered in detail.
