This event is an excellent opportunity to learn about Houdini 9's
new interface, fluids and character tools, while networking with
other artists in the local CG community.

This evening presentation offers an opportunity for the London
community to get together to learn about Houdini 9. You'll be
able to interact with industry experts and enjoy some light
refreshments afterwards.

We'll also be offering a draw for a free Houdini Escape
workstation license.

*Houdini 9 Demonstration:*
Tools in Houdini 9 will be demonstrated by Jeff Wagner, Senior
Technical Consultant from our head office in Toronto.

Houdini 9:
The new version Houdini 9, just released on September 20,
includes a new artist-friendly user interface, python support, fluid
dynamics, rendering enhancements and new character tools.

over thirteen years, supporting and teaching first Prisms and
now Houdini. Wagner has been credited as technical editor

procedural way of working and about furthering the skills of the
Houdini community.
