Guys! We need "Favorites" tab here on 80.lv
My motivation wasn't to knock Cem, not as a person nor as a developer. As I said, "this is cool, no doubt about that". I was sharing my personal opinion about the price-point for a material that is so expensive (performance-wise), and pointing out the fact that the same look can be achieved for cheaper (both performance and wallet-wise). I personally find it hard to budget 10s of dollars for a single material, a single effect, etc., but that's me. Other people have money pouring out of their ears and can afford to play like that. The internet is getting less friendly as far as opening dialogues like this. People should be able to have opinions and share them, debate them, without being told to hush up and move along. I hope others buy and use this asset- I'd be curious to see how it stacks up to alternatives out there (again, as I said "I love options"). As far as making my own assets and releasing articles here? It's in the works. And if somebody came along and started a dialogue about issues, opinions they had, or whatever- I would be happy to engage them!
Houdini experts Tomas Slancik & Vraja Parra created an amazing procedural animation project for this year’s AICP sponsor reel, using Houdini.
Method Design has recently release it’s amazing AICP sponsor reel, which was shown this year. The AICP awards is an special event, which celebrates global creativity within commercial production.
For this project Method Design wanted to create an entertaining piece of design, which should mirror the innovative and prolific nature of this industry. AICP sponsors were shown as various dancing avatars. All the dancing moves in this production were captured from real dancer. All the special effects, including incredibly sophisticated procedural animation and dynamic simulations were achieved with Houdini.
Incredible design projects and fantastic take on the functionality of Houdini software. Wish we had a little glimpse on some of the production techniques.
