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.
Here is a short talk about my winning entry for the Cook Off contest held by Side FX.
I talk about my background as a 3d artist, how I started to learn Houdini and how I approached this contest.
