I always wanted to learn Houdini for me modeling, usually I work in Maya, Max etc.., so the course is not long, but it was very good and understandable. Thank you for this course.

Great course and introduction to Houdini. I followed along with Houdini 17.5 with no problems. Audio quality on the videos could have been a bit better. Overall good introduction. Wish the instructor would have added the barrel attachment part at the end. Hope to see more Houdini videos from you Richard. Thanks!

This was a fantastic intro to houdini. Very well paced and great length. Got a lot out of it!

Brilliant tutorial. I was having a very rough time getting into the basics of Houdini. This application really needs a baby-steps approach for anyone coming from a traditional 3d App. The other tutorials I looked at seemed to assume an understanding of Houdini that I just didn't have. This one does a great job of unraveling the mysteries.

Richard explains his process clearly and has some useful tips to speed up your process of modeling. Definitely a good beginners course for Houdini.

The new way of learning, laugh, breathe and learn. Nice job, foundational concepts.

I have been watching a lot of tutorials on other platforms and this course has been the most detailed so far...The process of making all the information stick is the biggest challenge I have, so some of this is review and already picking up new bits due to the level of detail... thanks

Good clear teaching that takes away a lot of confusion in the big maze of getting started.

Great starter guide for modeling in Houdini, really enjoyed it.

Took me from zero to... well, a bit less than zero! Instructor seems like a proper chap, a real nice guy.

I started this course with no prior knowledge of houdini, but a lot of experience with procedural content generation. My goal was to get to know houdini to make use of my proc gen knowledge in a professional software. The course achieved that for me and I feel better equipped now to experiment on my own to get to know the software better.a little critique:overall it could be a bit more polished.using a program, that displays button and mouse button presses would be helpful; most actions are described, but not all.creating the actual rifle in section 2 with the digital assets created in section 1 is a little repetitive, an example object with less parts would probably be helpful.

While I am not into game development, this course worked great for me regarding modeling in Houdini. Excellent results come from a handful of nodes, which is amazing when there are so many nodes available. Wonderful job, Richard, I'm looking forward to part 2!
