Side Effects Software, an industry leader in 3D animation and visual effects software, is proud to announce new prices for Houdini designed to facilitate growth within the Houdini global community, simplified branding for the two Houdini workstation products and integration with the Orbolt Smart Asset Store to give Houdini artists access to the combined knowledge of the whole community.
To keep the focus on the Houdini brand and better describe the roles each product plays, Side Effects has rebranded its two workstation products as Houdini and Houdini FX. Houdini FX, formerly known as Houdini Master, includes all Houdini features with a focus on particles, fluids, Pyro FX, cloth, wire and rigid body dynamics. Houdini, formerly known as Houdini Escape, has become a popular choice for many studios with its comprehensive set of procedural modeling, rendering, and animation tools and its ability to open up and render scenes and assets created in Houdini FX.
At SIGGRAPH, Side Effects is releasing Houdini 12.1 which is the first version to integrate the Orbolt Smart Asset Store where members of the global Houdini community combine their knowledge and expertise to create customizable 3D assets. Being launched in beta, the Orbolt store offers assets which are thoroughly reviewed and tested before being offered for sale. The assets will work with both Houdini and Houdini FX and will provide production-ready solutions for VFX artists facing tight deadlines and rising costs.
Other features in Houdini 12.1 include the ability to create edge groups, a feature long coveted by Houdini artists, along with optimizations to FLIP fluids, Mantra rendering and Pyro FX.
