Rendering and Shading with Mantra Workshop


This is a constantly updated course, and new additional video tutorials will appear throughout this week (which begins Nov. 4). We currently have first 4 chapters out. This page will be updated when the new content appears. The video embedded below is a playlist that will get updated as well. 

A free workshop on getting started with Houdini's Mantra. From the very basics to more advanced topics. Principled shader, noise-driven micro-details, triplanar displacements, rendertime masking and shader mixing — we are not skipping any steps, so it's great even for absolute beginners.
