Gumroad – Sci-Fi Warp: Houdini & Nuke VFX Course: Step into the world of Sci-Fi Warp, a thrilling Houdini course where we recreate an epic VFX shot inspired by the cinematic brilliance of Starcraft 2: Legacy of the Void.
Mesh Preparation: We kick things off by prepping our mesh for simulations and growth FX. SOP-level tools come into play as we rebuild the mesh with mesmerizing hexagon-shaped polygons.
Growth Simulation: Enter the SOP Solver, where a dynamic, growing attribute takes center stage, steering the scale and various color attributes for our polygons.
Particle Extravaganza: Get ready for layers of particle simulations! Some dance to custom velocity forces crafted with Pyro, while others groove with standard POP tools. Post-simulation operations add finesse, allowing us to art direct movement, color, and more.
Lighting, Rendering, & AOVs: The spotlight then shifts to rendering. Lights, materials, and the power of Redshift come together, and we dive into best practices, setting up diverse light passes and mastering AOVs. Brace yourself for a custom smoke field with VDBs, an animated blast effect, and rendering optimization.
Compositing Magic: In Nuke, witness the magic as we seamlessly bring together renders. AOVs for each layer take center stage, offering complete control over the final output.
Project Files & Renders: No need to break a sweat over rendering. Every render for compositing is at your fingertips! Dive into the download archive, which includes the completed Houdini project file (ver. 19.5) and Nuke project file (ver. 14.0v5), crafted with Houdini Indie and Nuke Indie. Embark on this journey, unravel the secrets of Sci-Fi Warp, and let the course elevate your VFX skills. Enjoy the ride!
