Описание : Vex is a coding language native to Houdini, and with it, you can accomplish almost any task in VFX. This course aims to make the learning process easier by teaching the subject in a way that you won’t find anywhere else. To start things off, we’ll begin with a combination of theory and basic demonstration that carefully builds one idea on top of the next until you hold a deeper understanding on what’s going on.
Once this is established, we’ll then create a particle effect that utilizes vex in a practical way so that you can get an idea of how it applies to a production scenario. Finally, the last portion of the course is dedicated towards a wide variety of exercises that help you practice vex in a way that truly solidifies the main ideas and prepares you for more complex tasks in the future.
