SIDE EFFECTS SOFTWARE HOSTS “CHARACTER MAGIC IN HOUDINI”

WHAT:	Side Effects Software is hosting a one-day intermediate-level 
workshop that traverses Houdini's entire character pipeline, from 
auto-rigging a complex creature to applying musculature, skinning and 
animation.  The character workshop is designed as a hands-on, 
comprehensive class that gives attendees the opportunity to experiment 
with Houdini 8.1's powerful suite of character tools, including the 
newly released Auto-Rig and Muscle Builder.  Attendees will receive 
in-depth information about the essential tools as well as the pipeline 
itself, including tips on customizing rigs and building highly-adaptable 
character body-parts.

WHO:	Character riggers and animators. Attendees do not need any specific 
Houdini experience. A basic understanding of character rigging, 
skinning, and animation concepts is a bonus.
