Houdini is used in the film, animation and visual effects industry and increasingly in data visualisation and simulation. Due to its ability to create visual simulations based on procedural computation, it offers a very different approach to working with 3D, as compared to more traditional tools such as 3dsMax, Maya or Cinema 4D.
Houdini excels at creating physical-based effects such as destruction, smoke, fire and fluid simulations. Most importantly, it gives artists absolute control over every aspect of the scene, at any point in time.
The UTS Animal Logic Academy is an approved Houdini Training Centre.
During this one-day short course our experts and trainers will share presentations and case studies, along with some hands-on practical exercises. Participants will be able to operate a UTS Animal Logic Academy (ALA) workstation with Houdini installed and will have the opportunity to work through tasks and examples whilst receiving feedback and input from the training team.
The following key topics will be covered during the short course:
On successful completion of this course, participants will have a broad understanding of the capabilities and functionality of the digital effects software Houdini.
