    cmiVFX releases another great video hit with the launch of its Softimage ICE and ZBrush retopology workflow instructional solution. In digital animation, physical human animation can take you pretty far, but you won't achieve the final emotional "punch" without turning to the face for expression and emotion. So much is tied up in the face, and through its multiple levels of control through dozens of muscles and underlying bones, it is important to be able to make a solid structural head that is easy to animate. Using proven techniques of edge loops and solid understanding of human anatomy, we will take you through some of the more fundamental principles behind creating an effective head model and animation rig.

    Make UV mapping much faster and easier for yourself with this new tool and training video. cmiVFX has just released “Houdini Procedural UV Mapping” with Twan de Graaf. In computer graphics, you are likely to use textures to define the shape and color of an object. However, most of the time this will require a transformation from 2D to 3D when you want to apply a 2D texture to a 3D model. UV mapping, as this is called, can be a tedious process, so this series will look at ways to make this process easier in Houdini, specifically by using a plug-in or digital asset created by the author of this video. This digital asset has the capability to automatically create UV maps according to parameters set by the user and it will help with the texturing process itself as well. NOTICE TO VIEWERS: A first party plug-in and some third party models are required to follow along with this lesson. The plug-in can be downloaded as a trial and will work with the free apprentice version of Houdini and the example models can be downloaded for fr

Sick of trying to tweak particle forces forever without getting the results you are looking for? Then you'll love this video. Houdini is the swiss army knife of 3D Packages. There's basically nothing it can't do, so let's go ahead and give those C4D artists a run for their money. At the end you'll have a procedural system that works with all kinds of input geometry and can be adjusted and customized for a bazillion different effects.

    Most of the time Houdini is spoken of, in terms of its usage, is in creating massive visual effects shots which require Particles and Dynamics.

    The purpose of this video was to show Houdini being used for creating something relatively different. Motion Graphics is a huge field and Houdini, because of it’s procedural nature is a great tool to create various types of elements that can be used for motion graphics.

    cmiVFX has released their newest lesson: Creating Cracks Digital-Asset in Houdini. Voronoi fracture is powerful, but it also has some limitations. How can we gain full control over the shape of the pieces? How can we make animations for crack propagation? How can we break only certain parts of an object while other areas remain intact? Mehdi Salehi reveals a new VFX technique in Houdini. In this lesson, we will create a new digital asset to answer these questions. This new tool can use patterns for creating cracks. You will learn that almost anything can be used as the pattern. For example, You can use lines, L-system, or image files as the pattern. You will learn that our new digital asset has even more power. It can be used to create precise tear patterns for cloth simulation, even for low poly objects. This lesson offers a new exclusive effect technique which is recommended to all Houdini users.
