We know we can still use softimage in production for quite sometime, but seeing what’s out there is not a bad idea. I am personally looking at houdini and will be participating more on the sidefx forum with a positive outlook.
I contacted Tim Clapham from hellolux.com after the death of softimage and he has been very kind to provide us with some 50% discount for some of his training.
For those who don’t know Tim, he is a teacher at fxphd and very active in C4D and mograph community.
If you are looking at options beside Maya I am hoping this tutorials will help you get started.
Discount code softimagetv-c4d valid for:
