Houdini 3D software is used to create stunning CG artwork by the world’s top film, TV, advertising and video game studios - as well as individual artists on personal projects. Houdini is best known for high quality physical simulation - fluids, fire, destruction, etc - but is just as strong in other areas, like procedural modelling, world building/terrains, character FX (hair & fur, cloth), lighting / lookdev / layout, rendering and more. Since it comes with everything it needs and doesn’t require any additional plugins, it gets the nickname ‘pipeline-in-a-box’. But its real strength is how well it works with other applications and, through Houdini Engine, integrates directly with Unreal Engine, Unity, Maya and 3ds Max. Whether you are setting up a shot or building a game level, Houdini lets you create tools that can be reused many times during a project’s life cycle. Instead of simply reacting to issues and problems, you'll be able to plan ahead, visualize and refine your project.
