About This Course

Take Houdini Pyro to the Next Level

Taking Pyro to the next level is a difficult task which requires a deep understanding of Houdini tools, artistic sophistication, and intentional decisions which aid in time management.  This course is the accumulation of 6 months of research and features methods that you won't find anywhere else.  The goal of this project-based course is to examine real-world reference, study its behavior, and replicate what we see through a wide variety of techniques.  By the end, you'll have the tools and methods which unlock just about any professional grade pyro effect.

This course will render with both Karma & Redshift.  The Sparse and Axiom pyro solvers are primarily used throughout the course.  You do not need Axiom or Redshift to follow along.


Understanding Houdini and CG to an intermediate degree is expected throughout this course.  Be sure to follow the pre-requisites if you find yourself overwhelmed or lost with what's going on.
