Required Hardware: PC OR LAPTOP WITH GOOD CPU
Maximum number of participating students: 100
PART 1 / Day 1 HOUDINI
The first part of the workshop will investigate generative growing structures in Houdini.
Participants will learn different networks and systems to stimulate growth, such as Heightfield and Mapping inside Houdini. Students will also be exposed to vector trails, VEX and system functions, in order to create live growing systems and solid structures. We will give varying solid mesh geometry representations to the growth concept, as well as materials.
Finally, we will show how to set up a basic rendering in Keyshot.
PART 2 / Day 2 AFTER-EFFECTS
Adobe After Effects is a potent digital visual effect and compositing software by Adobe Systems that is used in filmmaking, different media production, and Motion Graphics.
During the second and last part of the workshop, students will learn new digital tools for application in their creative projects. They will develop an understanding of mapping, animation, and compositing to form a foundation for learning a new visual effect language.
Previous experience in AE and other editing tools is not essentially fundamental. We will go step by step into drafting an abstract landscape and editing the pattern using After Effects and Trapcode MIR. We will then develop the pattern and render each simulation in order to have a set of animations to build our storytelling before we compile the final outcome.
Both sessions will be interactive and practical, with lots of opportunities to ask questions and discuss with the tutor and classmates.
Class size will be limited to allow for each participant to receive individual feedback and assistance during the class.
The final outcome of the workshop will be short animation of all the work that has been conducted in both parts.
