Tom Minor – Autodesk

Tom Minor

Senior Software Developer, Arnold for Houdini

I graduated from SDAGE (Software Development for Animation, Games & Effects) in 2016, with a mixed background in CG art and software development for computer graphics.

In my career I have been lucky enough to work as an R&D Software Developer in large VFX companies, contributing to movies like Dune (2021) and Ron’s Gone Wrong (2021) at DNEG and episodic shows such as Prehistoric Planet at MPC.

At Autodesk, I work on Arnold (a production renderer) and specialize in developing our Houdini rendering workflows.
