Just the Tip(s) _ Matt Estela _ Houdini Hive Worldwide

Matt will present another round of quick tips to make your Houdini life easier. One of the great things about working in a big team of Houdini artists is the number of tips that get shared around. Everyone uses Houdini slightly differently, and the program itself is so deep, that almost every week someone will share a trick they thought everyone knew, to hear all the folk around them say ‘Wow, I didn’t know you could do that!’. The last collection of mini tips for beginners that Matt posted went well, so he’s gone back to friends, co-workers, online groups, and made a fresh set of tips. This will be a mixed bag of stuff for beginner, intermediate, advanced, so hopefully something for everyone.

Matt Estela is VFX Lead in Residence at UTS ALA. He teaches VFX and VR as part of a Masters of Animation and Visualization. Matt also maintains CGWiki, a popular website for Houdini training, and has 20 years experience in 3D.

Product Proceduralization _ KyleSowry _ Houdini Hive Worldwide

Houdini’s power as a procedural 3D software package does not stop at the standard tasks we do daily, it also includes an array of tools for performing repetitive processes across huge datasets. Here’s how I used Houdini’s PDG to accomplish a hard-flooring retailer’s mission to show their product range across a variety of household interiors.

Kyle Sowry is a high school student in Auckland, New Zealand. After first dabbling in digital art when he was twelve years old, he fell in love with the world of 3D, soon discovering Houdini, with its focus on proceduralism, and quick access to the data that a project is built upon. Now working on setting up a small studio, he’s developing his portfolio by the day (and usually night, too) with a diverse range of projects. When he’s not trying to make fancy software do his work, Kyle enjoys being out on the ice playing curling, making films, or working on robotics projects.

凯尔·索瑞(Kyle Sowry)是新西兰奥克兰的一名高中生。在十二岁的时候第一次涉足数字艺术之后,他爱上了3D世界,很快就发现了Houdini,他专注于过程主义,并且可以快速访问项目所基于的数据。现在正在建立一个小型工作室,他正在白天(通常也是晚上)通过各种各样的项目开发自己的作品集。当他不打算让精美的软件来工作时,Kyle喜欢在冰上玩冰壶,拍电影或从事机器人项目。


Neural Video Style Transfer Leveraging PDG _ Manuel Koster _ Houdini Hive Worldwide

Neural Style Transfer is a method of transferring a style of one image to another image using Machine Learning. Video Style Transfer also includes temporal consistency – meaning, there is no flickering inbetween frames.This project focusses on leveraging PDG to distribute work needed for the stylisation. It also gives an example of how PDG can be used to parameterize all kinds of processes to increase availability to less technical artists out there.
