TU The apprentiece version is actually free  but the version that is able to render HD level videos is not, still it's very cheap and good offer :) Ive been doing experiments with the V12 that was just released and the speed improvements are extremely nice. Did this yesterday as a test...took a walk outside and it was done when I came back.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnycL-Q2iHw

There is only 24 hours in a day! also My wife says chasing girls is undignified for a husband and father... I call her the happiness killer.

Very cool animation test.

T-U,
just get the free version now, this way we can trade files back and forth. If it helps good, if not, delete.
I will say I looked at a lot of 3D before I made my cheapskate choice to buy houdini. And while I have only done the UI introduction tutorials, I feel much better about getting into 3D with Houdini than I did looking at other software. Besides, we are not trying to master it, just use it as a bridge to TG2, Freelancah can lead us through that part. And if you like how it goes you can by the HD version for your portfolio version of this project. Or, we can each render the parts, and composite for each other based on the the software that we each have. I'm not sure it matters yet, first things first... Terrain, and we all have TG2. I will compile my ideas for the terrain and and how I was imagining it can be done to your and freelancah's inboxes now.

Just my 2 pennies.

Interesting collab. Looking forward to see this evolve. If needed I'll jump in, if you like. I love waterfalls!

TheBadger

Cool Dune Thanks. I'm going to really dig into this project after the weekend, have to get through that other project first. But then Ill make a terrain to work with for the falls.

I'm still having trouble finding free instructional material for houdini.
Never mind. Found tons.

Here's the waterfall tutorial that was recently in the webinar http://www.sidefx.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=2157&Itemid=166


Hi. I got an email for the webinar I signed up for, the e-mail said, May. Was this from something earlier, or do I have bad information?
Nice link Freelancah. I hope to have a good start on this stuff soon. It's taking longer than I thought to get started. Something eles always comes up.
