Hello everyone ! I will have 2 months off between two production in a few weeks and I’ve decided to use this time to learn new skill. I’m a compositor but I would love to have a chance to get into an FX Artist position one day, working with Houdini. I’ve been trying to learn the software on my own after work but it has been a bit rough considering I have no experience in a 3D software whatsoever… I saw a course starting in February on CG Workshop called “Introduction to FX using Houdini” which seems good and at the perfect timing for my schedule!
Do you guys have any experience with a CG Workshop course? Would you recommend it? Do you think I’d be better of trying to learn Houdini by my own during this downtime? It’s definitely a small investment and I’ve seen some mixed reviews online…
I’m also considering learning a bit more of Python during my break considering it’s more than useful for both my current job (compositing) and my targeted one (FX).
Have a great day!
