|Free Houdini tutorials from Mark Spevick|
Mark Spevick, our Head of Industry Training (and in-house Houdini expert) has created a series of free tutorials in Houdini, hosted at the official SideFX website.
Mark’s Houdini tutorials include beginner tutorials such as the destruction of a brick wall, and how to create fire and smoke, progressing to more advanced subjects such as how to create a crashing wave effect.
Houdini is a 3D animation software application developed by Toronto-based developer SideFX, and is widely used in the VFX industry for procedural animation such as smoke, fire, water and other effects. It is an increasingly important part of the VFX toolkit, and one we encourage all our students to learn, both in and out of the classroom.
Mark Spevick is one of our most experienced tutors at Escape Studios.Mark is our Head of 3D, and also Head of Industry Training, and combines teaching with working in industry, most recently at Framestore. You can find Mark’s extensive movie credits at the IMDB.
