Experienced Houdini pipeline developer Robby Thomas joins the CGWorkshops teaching team with his inaugural 8 week, fully-mentored workshop, Python in Houdini.

This is a course aimed at intermediate students, so if you have a beginner level understanding of Houdini and you want to learn how to get as much as you can out of it, this workshop is for you. Work with Robby as he takes you through the process of learning useful SOPs, expressions and functions and helps you put them into practice with weekly assignments and feedback. You'll discover tool building philosophy and how to create an OTL, before integrating it with Python. Finally, you'll look at streamling your set-up with Python SOP's.

Robby has spent his career working in Houdini, and the last four years working at Digital Domain - don't miss this chance to learn from of the best.
