Using the power of Houdini and it’s native fluid solver, PyroFX, you will learn how to create state-of-the-art, high-impact pyrotechnic effects. You will cover some of the most commonly used visual effects along with learning everything from sculpting coloured smoke plumes to burning down whole cities! You will start with smaller simulations so that you are familiar with the solver before creating more complex setups. Using Houdini’s flexibility to build custom shaders and microsolvers, you will be able to create highend FXs. This class’ overall aim is to help you push the boundaries of what’s possible in a feature film production pipeline. You will also learn how to optimize your workflow and productivity. Every shot will be approached from a professional production perspective utilizing industry based workflows to make the most of your visual effects. By the end of the course, you will be able to create spectacular visual effects shots and build your own custom otls for Pyro.
