SIDE EFFECTS SOFTWARE Houdini Engine in 3D Animation Software

Houdini is a procedural system that encourages artists to work freely, create numerous iterations and rapidly share workflows with colleagues. It delivers a total solution for rigging and animating characters and creatures. Houdini's node-based approach links perfectly with the working methodology of a typical character rigging TD. The product allows artists to make creative decisions deep into production as modifications made to Houdini nodes are distributed via the network to develop a new and unique result. Houdini also allows usersto develop tools that they can reused multiple times during a project’s life cycle.

USP : Houdini Core provides a unique 3D animation experience to the artists involved in creating feature films, commercials or video games. Houdini’s node-based approach provides the ability to eclose node networks into custom nodes that are shareable. Houdini’s procedural node-based workflow allows users to develop multiple shots under close deadlines while achieving the best quality. Houdini FX provides a powerful and accessible 3D experience with the help of its procedural node-based workflow, by delivering tools for simulating fluids, destruction fx, pyro fx, grains, cloth and crowds.

STRENGTHS
  • Product Maturity / Software / 3D Modeling
    Robust modeling tools
    It becomes easier to create good surface topology with robust modeling tools in Houdini used for films, TV, games, and VR. It can be used interactively in the viewport using a wide variety of polygon, NURBS, and Subdivision Surface modeling tools. Show More
  • Product Maturity / Software / 3D Animation
    Enhanced Flexibility
    With its procedural node-based workflow, Houdini FX can create more content at a faster pace to reduce timelines and enjoy enhanced flexibility in all creative tasks. Show More
  • Product Maturity / Software / Special Effects
    High Quality Special Effects
    Houdini’s procedural workflow best works with particles and dynamics to create high-quality special effects. These effects are designed to react to actions that are taking place in a shot and a procedural solution. Show More
  • Product Maturity / Software Features / Simulation
    Complete Controlled Simulation
    It enables the creation of highly complex simulations of large data sets. This solver and Houdini’s own solver work with various forces, constraints, and collisions for complete control. Show More
  • Product Maturity / Software Features / Motion Graphics
    Excellent Motion Graphics Toolset.
    It enables the creation of complex motions with ease using procedural channel operators or dynamic simulations. It also provides new methods of working that will support and enhance the existing motion graphics toolset. Show More

WEAKNESSES
  • Product Maturity / Software Features / Shading
    Harder to use
    The modeling tools fine, but they''re a slight harder to use than a program built for solely that. It is more helpful for effects and simulations rather than creating characters or full-length animations. Show More
  • Product Maturity
    Non-compliance
    Right click options cannot be activated easily, especially in Mac and few problems with viewport exist. Also, two or more sessions simultaneously cannot be opened in Mac. Show More
