Codes & Nodes - Scripting for generative design in Houdini

This workshop covers creative algorithms in VEX and VOPs.

In this workshop you will learn how to create intricate abstract shapes and moving forms from scratch in SideFX Houdini. We will cover scripting techniques in VEX (Houdini's built in scripting language) and have a short excursion into VOPs (visual scripting in Houdini). All while discussing algorithms for working creatively in Houdini and being able to skilfully manipulate 3D data.

Prior knowledge in a scripting language (e.g. processing, p5.js, arduino, javascript, etc.) is highly recommended. Skills in a 3D DCC (e.g. Blender, Maya, Max, Houdini, Cinema4D, Modo) are highly recommended. A knack for solving logic puzzles is definitely a plus!
