Welcome! Use the navigation menu at the top to find the various tutorials and tips.


I setup a Patreon page and a Paypal link, just in case you feel like buying me a coffee or beer (or both).


What's new

September 2018

Changes! I'm now teaching full time at the UTS Animal Logic Academy, great fun. If you're interested in doing a 1 year masters degree, hanging out with me and the other great staff here, lets talk.

Also, not sure how many people know about the longform articles I write on the HoudiniTutorials page, make sure to browse that section, some fun things to be found.

Slightly off topic, but a brief review of my new VR/Houdini laptop, the MSI G63VR 7RG. GeneralUtilties#MSI_G63VR_7RG

July 2017

  • Have noticed in the forums and chatrooms the same questions come up over and over, so figured I'd start a HoudiniFAQ section.
  • Another chops thing, this time on bones and chops: HoudiniChops#Stagger_and_offset_bones
  • A mild look change; someone suggested the pure white background was a bit harsh, so its been toned down to a light gray.

April 2017

Lego Batman VR! I've been supervising this project for the past few months, rather proud of it. Go watch it on Youtube (supports cardboard, 4k, stereo), or Facebook (positional audio, probably supports rift, not sure if its stereo), other headsets and formats should follow.

  • HoudiniChops - Diving into unfamiliar subnets again, this time its chops.

Mar 2017

  • HoudiniCops - Now that I've worked out a way to write vex for compositing operations, first of a few experiments I wanna try. In this case, a latlong to cubemap converter.
  • - Fantastic tutorial on chops for rigging by Henry Dean, first one I've seen to explain this so clearly. Watch!

Feb 2017

Eetu is one of the most generous Houdini artists around, constantly offering help on the odforce forums and updating his 'eetus lab' page with great experiments. Well he's knocked it up a notch again, and is running an (almost) daily hip blog. Check it out:

As for cgwiki updates:
