Very Clear and Nice Course.But need Subtitles for better experiences.

So far so good - sometimes little details are not mentioned and I have to go back and watch part of the video again to see which subtle step I missed. It's overall well paced, explanations fairly good and reasonably easy to follow if you have worked just a little with Houdini.

While the content so far seems good, the audio quality is poor. The instructor is outright pounding on his keyboard the entire time and failed to use a low frequency roll off on his microphone. It feels like you're being pummeled in the chest when listening to this course and gets old really fast.Strongly suggesting the author re-render these video files with a 400HZ cut in the audio stream and try uploading again. Alternatively, a listener can try to download an EQ for their computer audio and cut off that low end nuisance. This is what I had to do after the first chapter.Sorry for the low rating but I do hope you take the time to fix this in your courses. The content is good so thank you for that. :)

With alien screenshot i was hoping to have the final result of alien.
