Welcome to Houdini Is Hip! In this series, we are going to be looking at how to use Houdini to create incredible 3D graphics and effects. Not only will we be looking at full CG applications for it, but also at how we can use Houdini for adding VFX elements to live action plates.

    I love this. Even though it is so fundamental, I still like watching good basics tutorials. The reason is this: There are still so many people involved in many productions who have no clue about VFX work even though they keep using the term.
    If I had anything to say in this world I would make courses like this mandatory for all directors, DPs and producers directly involved in the process. That would make the work for the actual artists so much easier.....

    Hi Moeen,
    Is possible to render some shop-shaders in Karma ?
    Nobody uses those shaders and they are not bad simulating in viewport (Flipbook),
    I just want to know if Karma XPU reads them ?.

    Finally getting around to this one.

    Interesting to see the Differences between house fast I get things done Today rather than the last Houdini Basics Playlist.

    I honestly think SideFX should hire you to do write a solid Houdini Foundations book. The way you explain things is exactly what's missing in SideFX' documentation.
