Intermediate Dynamics
Training Course

Side Effects Software is hosting a one-day intermediate-level training 
course that teaches techniques for creating dynamic simulations with 
Houdini Dynamic Operators (DOPS). The DOPS workshop will be very 
hands-on, and attendees will have the opportunity to work with many 
different types of dynamic systems. You will learn how the dynamics 
architecture is set up and how it relates to the rest of Houdini. In 
addition, attendees will learn great tips and tricks for building 
complex, production-driven simulations.

The instructor for this course is 25-year CG veteran, Craig Zerouni who 
is a production consultant at Side Effects Software. Craig has extensive 
experience in film production and television commercial production, and 
his background includes programming, animating, effects direction and 
technical direction. Craig frequently writes editorial columns for 
leading industry publications, and he is a regular columnist for 3D 
World. Currently, Craig is writing a book about using Houdini more 


All Houdini animators! Attendees do not need any specific DOPS 
experience, although some Houdini experience is a pre-requisite. At a 
minimum, those interested in this course should feel comfortable with 
Houdini's workflow and editors. Anyone who has attended a Houdini Boot 
camp are perfectly prepared for this course.
