Best Way to Learn Houdini to become specialized VFX artist Sept. 1, 2022, 5:18 a.m.

Appreciate the info guys. really helpful. I guess I can confirm learning certain workflows like PYRO and FLIP sims can go through massive overhauls with each successive Houdini version. So i'll aim to be very selective about learning content. More than happy to pay premium for best courses out there. I can see companies like Rebelway and CGMA have pros that regularly keep up with updates?

Thank you! I see a big emphasis on SOPs in all beginner courses regardless of pathway.
In your opinion where is the best place to get moving with online learning?

Cheers

Hey guys I am a new Houdini user with a desire to eventually master fluids and abstract particle FX to work on feature prouductions.

I have 3-4 years experience in many other 3D softwares hence have a confident grasp of CG concepts and terms.

Broadly speaking if I intend to get awesome at fluids and particle FX should I have the same advanced knowledge of other concepts and workflows in Houdini?

In other words if my goal is to master what can be done with POPs and DOPs is it necessary to have the same level of proficiency in all other areas in order to be an effective Houdini VFX artist?

This is a question mainly of the best use of my time while a beginner and to on focus on areas of importance for my goal. Also what learning pathways or resources is the best for moving in the direction I'm aiming towards

Thank you
