Welcome to my VFX online course on creating the perfect wave using Houdini. As a lifelong surfer and Senior VFX Artist at MPC, one of the leading VFX studios in the world, I have spent many years studying and mastering the art of designing and controlling fluid simulations.
In this course, we will go beyond just creating random waves and delve into a deeper understanding of how to create and control a realistic wave. You will learn the basics of wave creation and then progress to building a tool for creating waves with precision and control. We will also cover the best techniques for setting up an efficient simulation, as well as how to create dense and complex whitewater without overloading your computer.
This course is designed for those who have a basic understanding of Houdini, but it is suitable for both hobbyists and seasoned VFX professionals. By the end of this course, you will have a thorough understanding of Houdini's procedural capabilities and feel confident in creating your own complex and realistic wave shots.
So if you're ready to take your VFX skills to the next level, join me on this journey as we ride the wave together. Let's get started!
