You`ll understand how you can solve any kind of situation you might encounter, using the tools in ways they were never dreamed to perform in that way. As a testament of the power and flexibility of Houdini, we?ll try to keep it simple and understandable by encapsulating some very interesting areas of Houdini. When you?re done with this set, you?ll have several tools to use, and have lots of ideas of how approach and develop your own tools. To call it Magic, is a true understatement. How can you put a guarantee on perfection?

Brief Introduction
Welcome to the highly anticipate “HIP Tricks” video set, created by CMIVFX and Varomix. A partnership like no other, this joint venture shows the true comradery that is a true CG pipeline. There is a reason that cmiVFX stands alone in the high end market?. IT’S NOT EASY TO DO! However true, we take pride in our sadistic need to provide the latest and greatest training in our industry so that digital entertainers can tell their story. We will work with ANYONE that has something fantastic to offer? wether it is a student half way around the world, or another training company that wants to work with us on a video title. We will always pull together with the right people to make the best training the world has to offer. Expect great things? ALWAYS!

A Hip Autopsy
In this first volume you will learn how to dissect any Houdini Hip scene, and figure out how that scene is put together. This is great for exploring sample scenes, other artists scenes to assist you in the creation of your own. We will also go over some tips to make your projects more solid and show you were you can get help from the great Houdini Artist Community.

Feather Tool
For this chapter set we will build a hero feather system used for close-up shots. This tool will give the artist total control using Houdini’s ramp widgets so that it makes for a great user experience. In the process we’ll learn how to map ramp parameters to control parameters of our tool.

Earthquake and Fischer Cracks.
In this section we will create a multi-purpose ground cracking tool, putting special attention on making it easily modifiable, and in realtime. The art of making it solid and getting predictable result, doesn’t mean that its simple. The final result is a very high end production ready tool that can be used in many scenarios. This chapter alone is work the price of the entire volume set.

Alvaro Castaneda
Alvaro Castaneda, best known as “Varomix” is a 33 years old CG Generalist TD. He lost a little of his self back in 1993 at a Jurassic Park screening, and that totally changed his life. Toy Story finished the job in 1995 – there was no turning back!. He started his way in 3D back in 1998, first using 3ds Max, then Cinema4D and finally in 1999, I met Maya 2.0. Since then I’ve done CGI for print, web, TV, Film, DVD, I guess anything that has pixels in it!. He started using Houdini in 2002 shortly after Side Effects launched the Houdini Apprentice Program. He had also done on-set VFX Supervision and DOP Assisting. He’ll soon move to Toronto to continue his career as a Houdini Generalist.

Project files are included

Hip Tricks Volume 2 has much to offer the future or current FX TD, in robust ways of showcasing inventive research and development technology. We go all out, showing you how to achieve new and interesting tools, so you can continue to create and wow the general public with your accomplishments. The content in this video is based on years of fulfilling user requests, and taking those requests to new levels. When it comes to high end CG and VFX training, there is only once choice… cmiVFX!

Row Row Row Your Boat
Using Houdini Ocean Tools plug-in (HOT), we’ll create and ocean that emits foam and splashes. We then we’ll add a ship that floats on the ocean in which the movement of the ship will be driven by the ocean. Once we do that, we’ll use the floating, moving ship to deform the ocean as it advances and emits spray at collisions with the waves.

Pixelated Game
Believe it or not, we’ll will build a complete playable game inside Houdini, using out-of-the-box tools and a little bit of Python code. This project is a real statement that Houdini can do just about everything that you can throw at it. Don’t think of Houdini as a 3D app, think of it as a 3D Operating System.

UV Mapping 101 Maya UV Techniques with_KevinHuds0n | 908 MB
In this DVD, Kevin guides the beginning modeler through the concepts and complexities of the UV layout process in Maya. It is essential that UVs are laid out properly so that 3D models can smoothly proceed into the texturing process.
Starting with the fundamentals, Kevin prepares the viewer to take on a project as complicated as laying out the UVs for a house. He covers editing the UVs in the UV Layout Window, projecting and editing on a stretched cube, cylindrical and spherical projections, and the principal of using “material splits” as a means of organizing different parts of a model. Intended as an introduction to production UV layout techniques, Kevin’s many years of expertise inform this clear and precise lecture.

Digital Sculpting and Anatomy

Human Anatomy: Female
This tutorial goes through the creation of a female character. Zack starts with a low resolution box mesh, adds gesture and rhythm to the character and then takes the design through to final detailing. The lesson takes place in ZBrush 3.0 showcasing a unique approach to developing surface, reading three dimensional form, and establishing relationships between muscle groups.

The Making of Rambouillet
Starting from a low resolution box mesh, Zack begins to flesh out the design sculpt of Rambouillet, a character from “Attaboy” – his sculpted novel series. Stressing rhythm, proportion and gesture, Zack works through a variety of options to find which one best accentuates the character’s personality. Zack also addresses underlying forms and foundation techniques for developing secondary skin fold details.

The Form of Anatomy Series
Join _ZackPetroc for an advanced anatomy lecture that illustrates how each major muscle group contributes to the overall rhythm and gesture of the figure. He also outlines techniques for reading the form through silhouette and highlights the origin and insertion points of all the major muscle groups; a key element in mastering anatomy.

Digital Sculpting: The Human Anatomy
In this DVD _ZackPetroc presents a modern approach to digital sculpting that includes technical discussions, and features in-depth techniques for adding life and realism to your characters. Using a Maya-to-ZBrush workflow, the viewer takes a step-by-step look at how underlying muscles and bone structure affect the true form of the human body. The Maya content highlights creating and preparing a low-resolution base mesh, and includes techniques that apply to other Poly modeling packages.

The central part of this demonstration takes place in ZBrush, with a comprehensive description of how to develop anatomy while adding weight, balance, and realism to your character. Finally, Zack showcases techniques for using the detailed ZBrush mesh to create an organized animatable mesh in Maya. This lecture is intended for all students and professionals who wish to strengthen their character work through furthering their knowledge of human anatomy.
