CGMA - Mastering Destruction with Keith Kamholz Jan. 20, 2020, 8:41 p.m.

Hi all! There's 1 week left to register for my Mastering Destruction 8-week class on CGMA!
In supplemental videos and live sessions we'll be focusing on some of the awesome new features in Houdini 18, and exploring anything else you might be interested in, such as vehicle destruction.

For those that haven't seen me post before, I'm an FX Lead at DNEG, and previously worked at ILM / Blue Sky / Tippett. Destruction is my specialty, with some highlights including Pacific Rim 2, Transformers, Jurassic World, and Marvel projects. I've also done presentations for SideFX at FMX/SIGGRAPH/etc, which are available on their Vimeo page.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask or drop me a message! [] []

I'm a bit biased because I teach their Destruction class, but CGMA offers 8-week classes that are pretty awesome, with actively working instructors & homework feedback & live Q&A sessions. []

And yeah, Steve's Applied Houdini tutorials are great! Clear & detailed solid content. :-)

Mastering Destruction in Houdini - CGSociety/CGMA July 22, 2018, 8:45 p.m.

Sorry I never saw your reply to this thread! There's a new session starting up this week, and still some spots available. Late signups are fine, I think registration is open for another week or so.

Also, I'll be presenting for SideFX at SIGGRAPH this year, so if anyone here will be going, feel free to keep an eye out for the schedule and drop by! :-)
