In this high-level tutorial, we will learn how to handle data between ICE clouds and get around many common issues in ICE and Lagoa. The objectives for this fast-pace, intensive course include successfully transferring data between two ICE trees, create custom particle effects, and understand how data flows in Softimage. By the end of this training, you will have the ability to solve these types of ICE problems in your own projects. Before following along with this tutorial, you should have experience using Softimage and ICE as we cover what would normally take hours to accomplish in a shorter span of time. If you are an artist new to Softimage, ICE or Lagoa, we have several courses to get you started. Software required: Softimage 2011 SAP and up.

Introduction and Project Overview
Welcome to the professional series for Particle Integration with ICE and Lagoa, an Advanced Learning Guide for skilled artists brought to you by digital-tutors, the world's largest online CG training library, and an Autodesk Authorized Publisher. My name is Chris and I've had the privilege of teaching Softimage to thousands of artists and educators at top studios and universities for years. And this specific, high-level course was designed to evolve your workflow processes, refine your thought process in ICE, and master your ICE problem-solving skills. The objectives for this fast-paced, intensive course include successfully transferring data between two ICE trees, creating custom particle effects, and understanding how data flows in Softimage. And by the end of this training, you'll have the ability to solve these types of ICE problems in your own projects. Before we start, I recommend you have experience using Softimage and ICE, as we will cover what would normally take hours to accomplish, in a much shorter span of time. If you're an artist new to Softimage or ICE, we have several courses here at Digital-Tutors to get you started. With that, let's move on to the next lesson.
