Présentation de l'éditeur

Packed with more than 350 techniques, this book delivers what you need to know-on the spot. Its concise presentation of professional techniques is suited to experienced artists whether you are:

* Migrating from another visual effects application
* Upgrading to Houdini 9
* Seeking a handy reference to raise your proficiency with Houdini

Houdini On the Spot presents immediate solutions in an accessible format. It clearly illustrates the essential methods that pros use to get the job done efficiently and creatively. Screenshots and step-by-step instructions show you how to:

* Navigate and manipulate the version 9 interface
* Create procedural models that can be modified quickly and efficiently with Surface Operators (SOPs)
* Use Particle Operators (POPs) to build complex simulations with speed and precision
* Minimize the number of operators in your simulations with Dynamics Operators (DOPs)
* Extend Houdini with customized tools to include data or scripts with Houdini Digital Assets (HDAs)
* Master the version 9 rendering options including Physically Based Rendering (PBR), volume rendering and motion blur
* Quickly modify timing, geometry, space and rotational values of your animations with Channel Operators (CHOPs)
* Create and manipulate elements with Composite Operators (COPs); Houdini's full-blown compositor toolset
* Make your own SOPs, COPs, POPs, CHOPs, and shaders with the Vector Expressions (VEX) shading language
* Configure the Houdini interface with customized environments and hotkeys
* Mine the treasures of the dozens of standalone applications that are bundled with Houdini

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Miscellaneous Tips and Tricks 30 août 2007
Par Brian R. Walters - Publié sur
On the cover it says "POWER USER TIPS AND TRICKS", suggesting an advanced read, but while I'm only 2/3 of the way through the book at this point, it comes across to me as an intermediate level read. Lots of tips and tricks, but only a few have actually been practical to me. Thus the -1 star.

Learn from me: Sadly on my last trip I made the mistake of bringing only this book along to read. Not that I haven't enjoyed this book, but because it is not a good read front-to-back. It's one of those 'bathroom reader' type books as each page contains 1-3 tips/tricks. Reading it nearly front-to-back presents too many tips and tricks to actually absorb and maintain any. It's like saving all the studying for an exam till the night before the test-- you might remember some information for a while--short term, but by the time I got back in front of a computer from my vacation almost all the information had escaped me (except for the one or two pages I bent the corner on). If you purchase this book, and if you're an avid Houdini user I recommend you do, read it slowly. In chunks. A couple pages a day at the most -- and keep a computer with Houdini on it nearby.

Make no mistake, "Houdini On The Spot" is an excellent addition to any Houdini users library. Partially because Side Effects Software's Houdini doesn't have that many books documenting it in any way, shape or form, but mainly because there are a few gems of information in the book. There are definitely just enough of those little "Oh, nifty! I didn't know Houdini could do that..." moments you'll experience by reading through this book. Just do it slowly, and take your time so it sinks in.

This is a great book that needs more readers than the technology itself
delivers. Hopefully, Craig will keep at it so we have updates for
successive versions of the Product (Side Effects Software Houdini).
I bought 2 copies, one for home, one for the office, and it brings value
to both the experienced and less so user.

After reading the whole book, I was thrilled by amount of very usefull information it has. It's a Houdini bible. Even the experienced users of the software should get it. I can only warmly recommend it it to everyone.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Quick tips 16 août 2009
Par R. Mccomb - Publié sur
There is a lot of useful information I guess, I'm still working through Will Cunningham's book, which is packed with useful material.
This one might show some interesting concepts and give a few pointers for ideas, but doesn't go into much detail, perhaps better for more advanced users - as it says on the cover. There are some basic tips though, which may not be officially documented anywhere - ie, Eye-dropper Colour Selection.
Has anyone noticed that pages 67 to 82 are missing? It's not a page numbering mistake, those pages really exist, but sadly not in my printed copy!
3.0 étoiles sur 5 not really for the beginner 24 juin 2008

firstly .... when I opened the book I thought theres an awful lot of white space here ...

I have about a months worth of houdini learning and I felt the book kind of skims over the surface of houdini without really explaining anything and its not like there was'nt any room to explain each topic a bit more in-depth...

A book of tips really which i guess will help me more in the future..
