[AGENDA & LINKS TO FILES BELOW]
Welcome to the Magic Market! Learn production techniques for bringing USD and Solaris into your lighting and VFX pipelines. Using a shot of a market scene coming alive with magical effects, these sessions explore different components of the production workflow. The goal is for experienced artists and TDs to better understand these new workflows in a production setting.
NOTE: This workshop is designed for artists and TDs with 2+ years of Houdini experience who work in mid to large-sized studios with an interest in incorporating USD and Solaris into their pipeline.
