Welcome to my new course called Aggregation.

In this 6.5 hour intermediate to advanced level course we’re going to learn how to fracture and explode any object and then dynamically assemble it back together. EPIC.

During this course you will not only learn the basic effect, but we’ll also build it up to a full production shot with all the steps to get there. We’ll create awesome electricity, we’ll do smoke simulations, we’ll learn how to light, render and composit everything.. the whole shebang! 

This course will require at least a base understanding of Houdini and VEX. I will explain most things I do in detail but I expect you to know at least fundamentals like how to work with custom attributes and the basics of VEX like declaring attributes. If you want to learn the absolute basics of Houdini I recommend my Howdini101 course of which the first few hours are free. 

Software used:

  • Houdini 18.5
  • Redshift 3 (you can use demo)
  • Blackmagic Fusion (or any other composting application, but I will demo in Fusion)

This is a paid course. But the first chapter is available for free below.
