Houdini FX





SideFX Houdini is the standard software for creating VFX in Hollywood blockbusters. One of the main reasons besides the powerful simulation tools can be found in the procedural approach of Houdini. This means, that you can generate extremely flexible and controllable setups. This procedural approach of Houdini FX runs through absolutely all areas of the 3D environment. Therefore, newcomers in this program often face a hurdle until the already from other 3D programs known working techniques are understood in this new context. But as soon as the understanding is taking over, you begin to love Houdini FX and its ways of working :-)!
