So this silly project simply began as a way for me to stress test and become more familiarised with the Solaris workflow in Houdini. I was still stuck a few versions behind in my professional work, as is the way with studio pipelines, and somewhat fell off the personal work due to the demands of VFX.
However what began as my usual silly short Instagram loop, began to expand as I was able to set-up new, branching, network chains in the LOP context, with their own cameras and lights to create multiple shots for a longer piece.
Now that Karma has gone gold, I can definitely see myself exclusively using Solaris to put together my renders from Houdini, while hopefully pushing it ever further as I go.
Also apologies for the song, it's definitely my worst yet...I'm so proud.
