View Full Version : VFX and/or Houdini

03 March 2013, 04:50 PM
My name is Jimena and I'm from Mexico. My main interest right now is to learn everything I can about making FX with Houdini (smoke, debris, dust, fire, fluids, dynamics, etc.); but here in Mexico there are no courses to learn about Houdini. I've trying to learn with cmiVfx, Gnomon and vimeo channels but there is a lot of information, and most of the tutorials are made to achieve specific effects; I must say, this is sometimes confusing to me, because although I achieve the desired effect and understand what is taught in the tutorial, I think I'm missing the main concepts. This is why I was wondering if you could guide me into the right direction; meaning an online course that will give me a core foundation, or maybe apply in a foreign school (I've seen the ones recommended in the website, but I don't know which ones will you recommend me specifically to learn the areas I have specifically mentioned: smoke, debris, dust, fire…..).

I would like to become an specialist if possible; right now I am studying on my own everything I can, but I hope for a master degree in the future (not so far). Maybe somewhere where a scholarship is accepted.

Thank you for your time :)
