Houdini core 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.

Summary

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.

“Unique and Powerful software”

Houdini let''s artists explore different creative paths because it is easy to branch off a new node to explore alternative solutions. The nodes are what makes Houdini unique and give it power, there are lots of viewport and shelf tools that allow for artist-friendly viewport interactions.

“More User-friendly”

It allows users to create complex scenes that require duplicate geometry. It is more user-friendly due to its easy procedural modeling and animation, which results in less meticulous work requirement from the user.

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

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”

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.
