Houdini 18.5 Sneak Peak Oct. 1, 2020, 7:40 p.m.

Looks utterly amazing! Can't wait to hear more about it.

Study group for learning Vex? (and/or other Houdini topics?) Aug. 10, 2020, 6:29 p.m.

I haven't been able to find any information if a study group or similar might be available for learning Vex. I'm thinking that working with a small group of beginners might be helpful in learning Vex - as well as other topics in Houdini. Despite its potential for helping the code-challenged to get peer support and encouragement - it doesn't seem to be a thing with learning Houdini or CGI in general that I've ever seen. I get that with many areas in Houdini you can probably teach yourself on your own - but something like Vex - being able to ask questions and solve problems with others who are on similar levels of skill could be quite valuable and help people with sticking with it. Anyone interested?

CmiVFX character animation or...? Aug. 10, 2020, 6:17 p.m.

Does this website ( actually still work? I get all kinds of warnings of it being suspicious in my browser as well as many broken image links, etc. Also, this tutorial could be useful but it looks to be from an ancient version of Houdini and not sure if many things would still work or be relevant. The price seems pricey but fair for such an old version and for just one tutorial (if you subscribe for a month) but I'm not sure I'd trust giving them credit card info, etc. Any thoughts?
