It would be really cool if these could be hosted on Fridays, I know it's not easy but deadlines and severe overtime makes it close to impossible to attend these. Not just for me but other colleagues as well that I mentioned the event to personally.

THUG has actually been around for years. It has a facebook page you should be able to find… It's called “THUG - Toronto Houdini Users Group”.

This is a long overdue upload of a scene Todd Dufour sent me.
I'm no Pyro expert, but I managed to get the scene to render a flipbook.
You'll need to render some caches to disk before seing anything in the viewport.

Todd Dufour Associate VFX Supervisor from Atomic Fiction presented some “Fast Particle based Pyro Techniques” to help reduce the sim time on Pyro sims.

Thank you Todd for wrapping the scene up.

Next Montreal Houdini User Group is February 15th at ON Animation.
Please RSVP, places are limited to about 60 attendees.

We have 2 presentations for now and we are looking for another presenter.
You can comment on the meetup page if you want to present something.

It doesn't need to be a big thing.
