Eye candy: Side Effects’ Houdini 2014 demo reel
Side Effects Software has released its 2014 demo reel for Houdini – and its pretty much heaven for lovers of simulations. If a thing can blow up, fall down, or wash away, it’s probably in there somewhere.
As you might expect, movie VFX is well represented, including Digital Domain’s work on X-Men: Days of Future Past, Imageworks’ effects for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and Image Engine’s work on Elysium.
But there’s also some great commercials work from the likes of The Embassy VFX and London’s Electric Theatre Collective, and even games get a look in, in the shape of Guerrilla Games’ Killzone Shadow Fall.
