Just watching this video makes me crazy

Ir kāda local userbāze, moš kādi veterāni? Diez vai, bet kas zin


Nu nav jau brīnums, ka tā. LV jau dominē archi viz, kur 3ds max ir iemīļotākais softs, bet pats tagad taisu vienu interjera scēnu, lai patestētu Mantru, gan jau testus iemetīšu šeit pie WIP tēmas, gan iekš cgimage. Veterāni varbūt ir noslepušies kādā dziļā pagrabā, bet nēsmu neko par tādiem dzirdējis.
Par to userbase, nav jau nekādu lv forumu vai kas cits, kas to reklamētu un reti kurš zin par tādu zvēru kā Houdini un pirmais, kas liekas atverot houdini ir vēlme atrast unistall pogu , bet houdini ir tākā ar cilvēkiem, vajag tikai iepazīt, lai saprastu viņa īsto dabu. Varētu pieprasīt iekš CGimage houdini foruma sadaļu, tas būtu vienīgais veids, kā to puplarizēt lv rajonā .

PS. Sorry guys for not writing in english

Video was teasing indeed. Seems like milestone release.

Ir skumīgi ar to boring arch-vizu. Un apzināties, ka var taisīt uber cooligākas un interesantākas lietas. Bet grjobanijs archviz visu gremdē. Es strādāju ar Maya useri, spēcīgu mākslinieku. Tas līdz vēmienam tos archvizus taisījis.

Sākumā Houdini interfeiss bišk nobiedēja, tiesa

CGImage, lūk šis man pagāja secen kaut kā. Sanāca saregoties praktiski tikai ārzemju forumos. Tomēr šad tad iemetu aci imedžā un palasu, ko ļaudis raksta. Tur tā problēma iekš lv, visi pa saviem dzīvokļiem saslēgušies

Bet ir interesanti apzināties, ka vēl kādi vietējie CG ļautiņi šeit blandās. Moš no rīdziniekiem esi?
Ej nost, takš rakstīts zem avatarkas
Bļīns, vienkārši nepamanīju

PS: double sorry folks for good portion of non-english text. Just excuse us for a minute

So you guys say that to start learn Houdini over Maya:?
I too don't like maya, can fit it, and Houdini is more awesome and more attractive app

And guys, what about Python? do you learn python at same time when you learn Houdini?

Hi guys,
Just a quick note that I started to record Houdini Video training.
Right now I have 2 free on my website and the third one will be ready soon.

Hope you will enjoy,

Does anyone know if the Houdini tutorials from 3D Buzz are still relevant? I heard that the difference between Houdini 8 (what the videos teach) and 12 are quite drastic.
 
Old 08 August 2012   #23
You want to be learning from tutorials made with Houdini 11 or Houdini 12.

There are too many changes between Houdini 8 and Houdini 12 for videos made with Houdini 8 to offer a useful learning experience.

Thank you for the reply

I take it there is no book on Houdini (I haven't found one anyway) and Digital Tutors has an outdated Houdini course.

Is everyone learning this through Houdini's help menu and random videos online?
 
Old 08 August 2012   #25
Have you looked at SideFX website . They had lots of links to Houdini training last time I looked.

cmiVFX have a very extensive selection of Houdini training.
Peter Quint also has some great tutorials on Vimeo.

and don't ignore tutorials that are old (pre v11/v12)
MOST things haven't changed in years, and the stuff that has can be adapted pretty quickly...and if you get stuck just ask on on the forums

I remember a very bad feeling with houdini modelling tools.

Some advanced character modelling demo/tutorial is welcome

Read the help and look at the example files. The secret to learning Houdini is not to think do a , b ,c steps to get X . You need to learn how to move data around and manipulate it by learning the building blocks then you can do anything.

I am going through the 12 week masterclass video on the houdini website which is great so far. So far my experience with houdini has been a lot of "wow you can do that?!"
 
Old 10 October 2013   #30
how's it going so far sheepfactory? I'm back to considering looking at houdini again and looking for training. Seems the sidefx site is the way to go with some videos here and there from Peter Quint.

But yeah, the lessons on the sidefx site seem extensive to get you up and running.

these are the ones you're going through sheepfactory?
