I try to love you, but you make it so hard.
I just can't wrap my head around you.
You do amazing things and I love the fact people can get so much out
of you, but the only thing I ever get is frustrated.
I went into graphic arts because I don't work well with text and
programming. I like to see things and manipulate them that way.
I have ideas I want to express, but I spend hours searching through
help files not getting myself closer.
I took a course in college that made me really appreciate Houdini, but
since then, I've been struggling to get much farther.
I want to get better at fluids and particles, but I spend hours in
what seems like a data and coding hell for me.
I've previously tried Digital Tutors when I had a subscription, but it
never really helped my understanding.
Real Flow made a lot more sense to me right away, but it didn't seem
to have the potential of Houdini.
So I guess in this long winded vent, does anyone have suggestions of
what I should do, someone who doesn't have a gift for code, to get
better at fluids/particles and Houdini in better?
You have no idea how many emails I get on this list that I just stare
at without really understanding what to do.
I want to belong, but I feel like everyone's kid brother that gets the
door slammed in his face when his older brother's friends come over.
