“More people need to know about this product!"

(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)5
I’m quite surprised that this product is not as popular as I thought, given the amount of control and freedom it gives the user in terms of surface modelling, texture, lighting effects, and various other editing tools. It is a great product for all, from a beginner to an advanced level designer!

“Can be slow to use, but the results are amazing!"

(*)(*)(*)(*)( )4
Houdini breaks the pattern of linear tasks in 3D applications. Instead of just a one way approach, which could limit the style of working, Houdini helps you transit from one phase to another – this could even be the beginning of your work – to make changes. This way you can make modifications to your design without affecting its essence to a great deal at all. However, all of this can take a toll on your system. It can make it really slow. Also, since it a relatively vast program, a good idea would be to maybe use and master one aspect of it and then move on to another.

“Great to use, if you’re willing to learn"

(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)5
I used to have a tough time with transferring procedural assets to Maya. Houdini helped me with this. It is an extremely easy program to use and also easy to learn and is perfect for simulations. The only problem that you may face is that its modelling tools are not as efficient as those of others. But this is something that you can work around by switching between programs.
