Houdini Utility Knife

A quick Photoshop job to illustrate Houdini tool flexibility for in internal company wiki.



Nikita Pavlov launched his FX career on 2008's "Kung Fu Panda". While at DreamWorks Animation, he simulated 25 martinis, collapsed two bridges, sprouted 3.7 miles of magical beanstalk, emitted 28,755,404 sparks, and color-corrected 4.1 trillion pixels. After nine years at DreamWorks, he left the hemisphere and vacationed at Weta Digital before returning to California and finding a new home at Blur Studio as a resident Houdini pipeline engineer. When not crashing renderfarm servers, Nikita sculpts, draws, designs game campaigns, and attempts to pen the next Great American Novel.
