The Houdini Challenge: Everything starts with design! You have one hour to create a still or flying logo from scratch. Machines are first-come, first-serve, or you may use your laptop. Your logo will be judged on the following criteria:
  • How kick ass does it look?
  • Do you have the Mojo to create a network that is elegant and includes at least a few different Houdini contexts, such as SOPs, DOPs, and POPs?
  • Do you just slap on a material or do you create a cool shader to go with that kick ass logo?
  • How does your network flow?

Softimage ICE is a powerful, node-based, multi-threaded visual programming language found as a complete feature set inside Softimage. From simple particle effects to authoring the logic of an entire physics engine such as “Lagoa,” ICE gives artists and programmers unparalleled creative freedom. While focusing on creating stunning visual effects and deformations with ICE, Mark will also guide attendees through the simple process of importing and exporting these effects to and from Autodesk Maya.
