Welcome to howdini101!

In this 20 hour Houdini course I will take you from zero to hero.  We start at the absolute basics and work our way up to creating a production level scene.

The first 12 hours of this course is completely FREE, which goes over all of the basics, assets creations and more. If you want to continue learning about the lighting/shading, scene assembly and watch additional extra chapters that go a bit more in depth you can buy the full course.



FX artist/CG generalist based in The Netherlands. Apart from doing a lot of advertising work I love to do personal work to try to really push my skills. Started using Houdini in december 2015 and never looked back :)

    I think my laptop doesn't meet requirements for this course. My ram is only 8gb i7.

      Should be fine for the entire first half of the course, you're only going to have issues once shading starts. The only stuff doesn't require a highend pc. So I'd say it's still perfectly do-able if you want to learn how to work with houdini.

    Hi everyone.
    First of all, I apologize for my not good English
    I'm absolutely new and a CGI novice. I deal with music but I love the idea of being able to blend audio and music to create abstract "worlds" able to dialogue with music and with my inner world.
    Unfortunately I don't know the English language. It would be difficult for me to follow the course, but I wanted to ask if written resources or a transcript of the video are also available.
    Thanks you )

    Fundamentals... but throw in Redshift just to complicate things. What a mess. Hard skip.
