Training description During almost 4 hours of video training we are going to discuss how to work with lights inHoudini 12 but also what a lighting artist job is in a cg production.
Using a real production scene I’m going to show you that relying just on Global Illumination is not enough to get the job done and that every asset in the scene requires special attention. In this training course I tried to cover both the artistic and the technical side of what a lighting artist has to know since I think both are necessary to be successful in this job.
Note that this video can be both downloaded to be watched offline or it can be streamed online.
I recorded a short video tutorial creating a plant pot in SideFx Houdini that you ca watch here.
It shows the modeling, the shading and a very basic rendering stage. It was a live recording and if sometimes it feels slow that’s because I had to resize Houdini to 1280×720 and work in this small size = no fun.
It doesn’t have any voice over but from time to time short tips are displayed on screen.
This plant is just one of the assets I am currently creating for Class Dismissed, a short film I’m making with a friend of mine.
Hope you like it and for more tutorials visit my Houdini training page here.
