Course Description

In Applied Houdini Particles I, we'll learn all about how particles can easily give rise to complex effects. In this lesson we'll develop a magical effect from scratch, starting with learning the fundamentals of what makes a particle a particle. From there we'll develop techniques to effectively source, simulate, and afterwards refine the look and feel of our millions of particles. As with all of these lessons, efficient workflows and many of my favorite tips and tricks will help you leap ahead to a production quality final effect.

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 Last Jedi, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Star Wars: The Force Awakens). 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!
