Looping softbodies in Houdini and Redshift

Creative Days!     $100 $25

This course is aimed at beginners and intermediate users. A basic understanding of the Houdini interface is assumed.

We will go step by step, so you understand each section properly, and can adapt the principles to your unique project. We will cover every aspect needed to create a production level softbody simulation from start to final render.

We’ll look at a variety of methods to achieve the same result so you can adapt and use these principles on whatever your current project requires.

The subtitles are automatically generated, so the quality of the captions may vary.

    Freelance Motion Designer/3D Generalist


    I’m a self taught motion designer and 3d Generalist from Durban, South Africa. However, I am now based in Munich, Germany. I love creating looping simulations in my personal explorations. I also work for studios and agencies as a 3d Generalist on a variety of projects. I use Sidefx as my primary tool and Redshift as my renderer of choice.
