About CG Forge

Write your awesome label here.

Here's How it Works:

  Watch the Intro Course For Free

If you're brand new to Houdini, then register to CG Forge for free and watch Houdini For the New Artist.

  Unlock CG Forge

Once you register, you'll be able to subscribe or buy courses at a flat rate. With subscriptions, all courses are unlocked, and you'll be able to watch any CG Forge course.  If you don't like subscriptions, then you also have the option to permanently buy whichever course you'd like for a flat price.

  Build Your Skills

Each course features a difficulty that's rated as beginner, intermediate, or advanced to help find the right challenge for you.  Each course is project-based and some courses offer additional exercises which provide extra practice.

  Customize Your Experience

As you're building your skills, you'll want to customize your experience with one-on-one calls through CG Forge Academy.  For serious users, a mentorship offers an ideal option for 8 weeks.  Alternatively, you can also book individual consultations as well.


As you combine self-paced courses with individual guidance, you'll eventually be qualified for certifications.  These certifications require the completion of multiple courses and are only awarded to those who work hard towards their goals.


Aspiring Houdini professionals need a great demo reel, a high degree of knowledge, and someone on their side to help them succeed.  Unlike other schools, CG Forge can help facilitate job interviews and provide direct support once you're on the job. 

For existing professionals, you'll discover new techniques, workflows, and ways to save you time during production.
