- Description - With the release of Houdini 18, we now have Solaris! Solaris represents the implementation of LOPs and USD within Houdini and is designed to make life easier for studio pipelines, large data management, set dressing, lighting, and shading workflows. This course is designed to teach you how to get started in learning these topics and by the end of watching these videos, you'll have plenty of information to discover more for yourself. These videos are useful for any Houdini artist - for those at mid-large studios as well as individual artists who might want to leverage the benefit of LOPs and USD for larger scenes. The concepts are fairly complex though, so if you're brand new to Houdini, try out Houdini for the New Artist before diving into this course.
Tyler Bay founded CG Forge as a place to host excellent tutorials. He also has experience working in film, advertisement, biomedical animation, virtual reality, graphic design, and product visualization.
