Learning Houdini

GETTING STARTED

As a creator of 3D animation and VFX for Film, TV, Video Games and VR, you need a combination of technical and creative skills. Houdini is perfect for bringing these worlds together as you explore, create and refine your CG projects from concept to final signoff. While Houdini has a wide variety of tools designed for generating CG content, it is its node-based procedural workflow that sets it apart because it makes it easier for you to create directable CG shots, explore multiple iterations and refine your work, even deep into production. As you learn Houdini, understanding how to leverage this approach will be important to your success.
