Richards VFX Blog



Hey Everyone,

I started writing a blog on VFXy stuff on my website. My first issue is all about what I learned from digging through paragon effects. You can find it over here:

I’m aiming to get a new post out every two weeks and my next one is scheduled to drop on the 5th of November.

I’ll keep updating this chain as they release so everything is in one place.


Hey Everyone,

The second edition of my blog is out. This week we look at my production process for creating effects as I recreate a couple of the effects from avengers infinity war.

I hope you all enjoy!


Hey Everyone,

The third issue has now been published. This week I look at recreating the techniques that Rare used for Sea of Thieves at an indie price point.

I hope you all enjoy, and check back in a couple weeks for the mid season finale where I blow up my old final year project.


Hey Everyone,

The fourth issue of my blog is now out. The week I’m looking at destroying things in Houdini and bringing them into an engine. I also troubleshhot a lot of the issues I ran into, and I ran into a LOT of issues!

I hope you all enjoy I’ll be back after the holidays.
