Jack. First of all, I want to apologize for offending you. We published this just to show how the tech could be used. We don't actually care about the message. But you do bring up a viable point, that for some people - this might be an issue, so I take this post down.
What European universities would you recommend?
How about you don't associate with a left leaning partisan news site assuming all video game artists lean the same way. I'll be blocking your content from here on out.
SideFX released an amazing PDF book, which gives a nice introduction to the Houdini package!
The book is called “Houdini Foundations” and it will be available for a free download! It’s a very cool little instruction, which can help you learn how to build small projects in Houdini and bring the results in UE4. The company also made the project files available for everybody, so you can download and test them!
Houdini Foundations is pretty detailed. It gives you an average overview of the interface and functions, shows the basics of modeling, animation and rendering functions. It also invites you to explore procedural game assets production for UE4, and Terrain Generation features.
