IDAVFX released a tutorial on creating the massive explosion in Houdini, and it includes scene files with more than 10 hours of recorded material.
You can learn how to recreate the iconic powerful explosion from Independence Day: Resurgence in Houdini. In this tutorial you will learn how to find the right references for your project, how to import maps into Houdini correctly, will learn the basics of VFX production, and will gain an understanding of the Pyro and Ocean procedure and composition in Nuke.
The tutor who explains the basics of blowing things up in Houdini is Garry, a Senior VFX artist from China who took part in creating game and movie trailers including War Thunder, Assaultfire, and Jade Dynasty I.
This tutorial covers the entire process step by step, and you move from learning how to make the layout of the scene to the production of smoke and flames and the production of the ocean. IDAVFX notes, however, that this is an advanced course and you need a basic understanding of Houdini to complete it successfully.
