Houdini Tutorials

All the video tutorials were originally created using the XviD codec at varying resolutions, but I have since moved them to Vimeo. Please keep in mind that these videos are not intended to be professional as I just hit the record button and start talking… no scripts, just showing things I think would be of interest.
