cmiVFX has released Houdini Debris System. One key to a believable destruction effect is the complexity of the bits and pieces. Modern films push the limits of technology every summer with flying debris. Modeling, placing, and keyframing such a mess is simply not possible. Okay then mathematics leveraged to create the chaos of a falling building is great in theory, but how does one control that chaos short of a phd? Suppose one does get a reasonable debris sequence out, but the director wants a bit more motion blur and "Oh, how about a more rocks and have them shoot over to the right... just a tad". Alvaro Segura with cmiVFX is here to answer all those situations and more with this amazing, brain melting courseware. Whether you are already in the celluloid trenches or you aspire to be, THIS LESSON IS A MUST.
Cracking and crushing a model is only a part of a cinematic destruction sequence. Visual effects professionals in the trenches know that a solid DEBRIS SYSTEM is also a necessary piece of the puzzle. Alvaro Segura here now reveals one way to create debris that is re-usable, direct-able, and production ready.
