Recorded presentations are now online! The Houdini HIVE Worldwide event brought together Industry experts and SideFX staff to present on a wide range of educational topics. The goal in each case is to explore how Houdini and its procedural node-based workflow can be applied to the work you do on a daily basis.
If you look around the web - on YouTube or vimeo, on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook - there’s a wealth of effects artists posting their latest Houdini tests and R&D projects. Some of these are for specific projects. Some are simply where the artist is trying out a new feature or technique. And of course some of them are just for fun.
SideFX held its fourth annual “Game Jam with Houdini” contest for Global Game Jam games that were made with Houdini. This year’s contest received game entries from all over the world, including the United Kingdom, United States, United Arab Emirates, Sweden, Hungary, Germany, France, Canada, Guatemala, Netherlands, and Poland.
