Work by Hayden Yeagley


This course builds on the fundamental concepts of 3D by developing procedural content creation inside of SideFX’s Houdini. Emphasis is placed on creating 3D scenes utilizing a procedural node based network, including animation, scattering, vegetation, terrain, and oceans, all rendered inside Houdini. Classes include a mixture of weekly demonstrations and discussions, as well as project critiques and industry tips. Students will explore various styles of procedural networks through homework assignments, working towards a polished final project created using Houdini.
