Not all feathers are created equal. Learn how Alt.VFX from Brisbane, Australia hired a SideFX intern who had developed a feather tool. They then worked with him to adapt it to their requirements for their clients Toyota and Bank of Melbourne, to add plumage to both a robin and a penguin.
SideFX is pleased to announce the release of Houdini 18. This release introduces SideFX Solaris, a USD-based context for lookdev, layout and lighting that brings procedural tools to this important part of the pipeline and SideFX Karma Render (beta), a new HYDRA-based renderer that integrates into the Solaris environment. This release also includes SOP-based tools for configuring Destruction and Pyro FX shots and a focus on UX and optimization throughout the software.
