BUas Procedural Showcase _ Aleksandra Radivilovic, Erwin Smeenge, Jens van Kampen, Joshua Rizzo …

From Houdini Hive Education Edition originally broadcast on November 12, 2020.

In this presentation, a group of third-year students from Breda University of Applied Sciences will go over their tools / projects they made using Houdini. These tools are created to supply several game projects and cover topics such as procedural characters, building destruction, procedural landscapes and racetrack generation. Each student will present their project and explain their workflow.

Aleksandra Radivilovic is a 22-year-old student at Breda University of Applied Sciences. She is in her third year, but her first time focusing on technical art dates back to the beginning of her second year. Wanting to dip a toe into Houdini, she chose a procedural route for her first project of the year, and the rest is history. Since then she has been interested in everything procedural, as enjoys the creativity and problem-solving that goes into every new project. She is endlessly intrigued in the possibilities of procedurality and its ability to speed up game art pipelines. She is most interested in creating tools to help environment artists build large, beautiful open-worlds.

Erwin Smeenge is a 22- year-old visual art student at BredaUniversity of Applied Sciences. He is in the 3rd year of the study. During his study, he started to become more and more passionate about creating VFX. And once he started to learn Houdini and Unreal’s Niagara system, he was sold to become a VFX artist. His focus within being a VFX artist are creating destruction, pyro and magical effects in both real time and offline rendering.

Jens van Kampen is a 3rd year student at the Breda University of Applied Sciences and specialize in both procedural and environment art. His passion lies in the combination of these two, which is why almost all of his procedural work is environment-oriented. He is highly interested in simulating natural geological development and have a solid understanding of the environment art pipeline.

Joshua Rizzo is a 25-year-old Visual Arts Student at Breda University Of Applied Sciences and is currently in year 3. He was introduced to Houdini in his first year of Uni and ever since he has been passionate to use it for VFX & Proceduralism for Film & Games. Houdini allows him to work on various steps in the pipeline, from rapid prototyping to final asset delivery. His interest involves Procedural Tools, VFX & CFX for both Real-Time & Offline Rendering and he is looking forward to working in the industry.

Peter Prickarz is a 3rd year Tech Art student at Breda University of Applied Sciences. He uses Houdini to create procedural tools that make environment and level creation more efficient. He enjoys solving problems mathematically with VEX and Python. After graduating high school in Germany, he went to Breda to become an environment artist, but shifted to Tech Art as soon as he got in contact with Houdini.

How to Learn Houdini from Scratch in 13 Weeks _ Matt Brunner _ Digipen

From Houdini Hive Education Edition originally broadcast on November 12, 2020.

How do you introduce a production software package as massive and interesting as Houdini to new students? This talk is about the dilemmas I’ve faced answering that question and some of the solutions and results that I have come up with.

Matt Brunner currently works as a professor in the department of Animation and Production at DigiPen Institute of Technology outside of Seattle. He teaches courses in Houdini and game production. A lot of history preceded DigiPen. He started out as an artist, painting in a studio in Texas. He took a job as an art director for an educational video production unit after living poor for far too long and quickly immersed myself into digital animation during its formative years. This led him to get a Master’s degree in Visualization from the Viz Lab at Texas A&M focusing on digital animation and cinema. He took that experience and started the computer animation department at what was then the largest stop motion animation company in the world, Will Vinton Studios in Portland, Oregon. He built the capacity for computer animation and vfx at Vinton’s (now called Laika) for almost a decade before becoming interested in the new game console that was soon to be released, the Xbox. He took a blind leap into a job as an experience director and cinematics director at Microsoft Game Studios and worked on a number of games, notably Crimson Skies. Eventually he left to form Airtight Games, a game dev company with some of his co-workers, and they created a number of new IP titles including Dark Void and Murdered: Soul Suspect.
