I am very happy to announce my first tutorial produced for CMIVFX. Here's a summary:

Houdini Connections
Houdini is not just for visual effects. With the availability of Houdini for all platforms and the variety of training materials now available, Houdini is making headway into the world of motion graphics. The procedural nature of Houdini, combined with its powerful dynamics system, make Houdini an important player in visualizing data and allowing graphic artists to express themselves in new and powerful ways. In this tutorial series we are going to look at a current design trend - data connections - and build a procedural system in Houdini to accomplish this task while harnessing all the additional benefits Houdini has to offer. We'll learn how to draw connections between relational points of data (in this case, by proximity), create text readouts of the data, and combine this system with Houdini's dynamics network. At the end of the tutorial, the viewer will know how to create a reusable digital asset to handle this effect, and hopefully learn a few new tricks along the way!

This video is going to be the gateway for cmiVFX to open up to new markets outside of the standard high end visual effects and computer graphics vertical markets by adding motion graphics design videos to its library. Seamless transition will be achieved for those migrating from film and gaming to broadcast media.

For those of you not familiar with CMIVFX, they are one of the leading content producers for high end tutorials. I personally find their content to be excellent, and I am happy to be included as one of their mentors. I hope those of you who purchase the tutorial will feel the same way.
