1. Here is the first part of my "Anatomy of Houdini smoke solver" report, which I presented at the CG Event 2014 conference in Moscow. As it was recorded in a poor quality I've decided to make a remastering in order to improve quality of both video and audio content. I've also added English subtitles to make it useful for English speaking audience.

    In the first part I describe some basic concepts of fluid dynamics and show how to create simple smoke solver from scratch.

    Первая часть моего доклада "Анатомия газового солвера в Houdini", представленного на CG Event 2014. Поскольку на конференции он был записан в посредственном качестве я решил сделать небольшой ремастеринг. Заодно добавил англоязычные субтитры, чтобы расширить потенциальную аудиторию.

    В первой части обсуждаются теоретические основы, демонстрируется, как собрать простейший smoke solver "с нуля"

  2. I'm thinking about putting together a bunch of tutorial videos, something like this but much more detailed.
    Let's see if anyone would be interested...
