Event Details

UTS we are coming to you!


On February 23rd, SideFX will be hosting a Houdini event with our friends from Cutting Edge Post and Animal Logic. Look forward to hearing about VFX for VR and Spiders with crowd system integration!



Rob Kelly | Cutting Edge Post

Louis Dunlevy | Cutting Edge Post

A prominent Houdini artist, Louis has crafted some of the world’s most complicated visual effects across the film, television, and creative industries. From choreographed fluids to cloth simulations and character rigs to render code and shader tricks; Louis has been at the forefront of post-production for over 20 years.

Topic: Creature Adventures in Houdini

Summary: Cutting Edge Post will dive into all things creature related! You will get to hear about combinations of hero animation with automated rigs, crowds and so much more. 


Matt Estela | Animal Logic

Matt Estela is currently VR Supervisor at Animal Logic. Previously at Animal he's been a Lighting Lead, Fx Lead, CG Supervisor, and is one of those annoying Houdini evangelists you don't want to sit next to on the bus.

Topic: Awake - Using Houdini to create realtime VFX for VR

Summary: StartVR and Animal Logic worked together to create Awake, an ambitious VR experience for the HTC Vive. Matt is the VR Supervisor at Animal Logic, and helped design and execute some of the VFX for the project. He'll go through how the new game developer tools were essential in creating these effects, and how Houdini allowed for rapid iteration and feedback on some complicated ideas.
