H13 Masterclass | Lighting and Rendering
Published: May 1, 2014 for Houdini 13

In this masterclass, Side Effects Software Senior Software Developers Andrew Clinton and Halfdan Invarsson take you through the new Rendering and Lighting tools found in Houdini 13.

A new lighting workflow has been built around the use of Alembic as a way of efficiently managing massive datasets. This new workflow offers a new 'data tree' view for working with the Alembic files and for assigning materials and light assignments. This new workflow is linear out of the box and along with improvements to the quality and performance of Mantra, offers a powerful set of lighting tools.
