Whoo hoo, lovely!

I wonder why there's no built in support for color in smoke.

Short beginner Houdini Tutorial by me. June 23, 2013, 6:20 p.m.

Thank you for the kind words, but adding my voice to the tutorials is off the table. Like I said I don't like it, but to add more excuses to the pile I don't have a good microphone, leaving the voice off lets me work faster (and keep the tutorials shorter), and it's one less variable to have to deal with. Sure voice overs are something we're used to because lots of people do it, that doesn't mean I have to do it.

Circusmonkey, your website is fabulous! Thank you, thank you! I look forward to learning lots from it.

Do note there is no sound. Also this is mainly to get the format down correctly. When I get going the tutorials will all hang together and there will be some progression.

Any and all feedback is appreciated.

Personally I love the longer tutorials from SideFx and geniuses like Peter Quint. I just don't have the attention span to make my own, nor do I like the sound of my own voice.

My goal is to first highlight the techniques I use frequently to solve production challenges (I've been doing special effects for 9 years & Houdini for 5). Then I want to analyze my operator use and present that too. And I want to do all of this in bite sized chunks for easy digestion because we're all busy people and time is money.
