This is a non-comprehensive list of websites that helped me learn and still provide me lots of great infos. Maybe you find one you didn’t know yet. 🙂
Something everyone should always have open at all times. Also: vex documentation
The forum pretty much every Houdini user knows and probably even more used than sidefx’s own forum.
This is probably the best site for learning Houdini out there. He tackles pretty much everything, from copy stamping to python. He’s currently the FX Lead at Animal Logic.
Two guys who work at Aixsponza explain and implement many different procedural techniques. Most of the stuff they’re doing becomes FOTY (flavour of the month) within the community community. Curlnoise curves on top of geometry, differential growth and shortest path growth, just to name a few.
The OG Houdini tutorial guy.
If you’re looking to learn Houdini, you probably already know him. He has great starting tutorials on vimeo.
One of the most popular odforce users recently created his own blog. He also created so many more things before he started his blog. You can find them on his odforce thread.
The creator of MOPs has some really, really useful information and great explanations.
Not directly a website in that sense, but too good not to share. So many hipfiles with great techniques.
Alessandro Pepe with lots of different and cool FX.
András Király’s complex FX setups showcasing.
Awesome RnDs and setups.
