Houdini has become the go-to tool in the FX industry.
whoever wields its power is unstoppable.

A Must combo for any FXTD is knowing Python in Houdini. In this workshop, we will take a look into creating tools and systems that will make you question why you didn’t learn it all before.

We will start easy. The first module is catered to beginners so anyone can join. Later modules get quite advance so be ready. We will build a collection of highly useful tools for freelance or personal use. 


Corbin Mayne VFX Artist


Corbin Mayne FX Supervisor

I have been working in CG for over 10 years, across multiple countries and different positions. I began my career in modelling and CFX, but my passion for the technical side pulled me more towards FX. Since then I have worked on FX for Feature Films, TV Series, Game Cinematics and more. I have a real love for teaching and throughout my career I have taught Houdini to hundreds of artists through classes, workshops and internships.

Imagine a movie or game without FX …Neither can we!

Join the Rebels and embark on a journey of FX and CGI.

We will guide and mentor you along the way.

    •This section will also serve as a great reference in the future as you continue your Python journey, so even if there are parts that don’t quite make sense yet you can always refer back to this module as we progress through the course.
    Note: We’ll just cover the basics here, but for the duration of the entire course we’ll build more and more onto our understanding of the language and syntax through useful examples so that it sticks in your memory a lot easier.
  • • Python on-the-go: we will how to write quick Python shell scripts to eliminate repetitive tasks & set powerful parameter expressions.
    • Shelf tools for making it easy to access user scripts, HDA callbacks, Menu scripts & event triggers.
    • Get the most out of your digital assets.
    • SOPs
    • Wrangles not cutting it? Let’s use Python instead to alter or even create geometry.
    • Startup Scripts
    • Before you’ve even placed the first default cube in your scene, Python has already done some work for you.
  • •Render Scripts
    • Use Python to streamline your render processes
  • • End the course by tying everything together into 2 larger tools that will challenge your TD skills and teach you how to progress from an idea to the final robust version of your tools.
    • This module will be almost entirely practical and as we work our way through the examples we’ll add on more advanced techniques, finishing up with a set of tools to enhance your FX workflow and leaving you with the skills to be able to develop your very own tools to save you time and effort on all future projects.

• This workshop contains a lot more information and the weekly breakdown is just the highlights.
• Assignments and weekly lectures are very demanding and can be challenging to new Houdini users.
• It is required that the student have a very good background in Houdini to be able to follow along.
