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 V, we will cover in depth every aspect of simulating combustion (fire) with the Pyro solver. We will build from scratch a complex simulation, going through each and every parameter on the solver, and with visual aids and examples along the way. New techniques including "shredding" will be explained, while old techniques will be repurposed and used in more sophisticated ways. Advanced workflows to quickly achieve certain explosion styles will be covered, including many specific techniques I use in production currently.
