  1. We were not happy with the store we had so we are looking at alternatives - haven't found the right one yet.
  2. SideFX is pleased to announce some exciting changes to Houdini Engine licensing that lets studios use their licenses on the cloud and gives them access to affordable monthly and weekly licenses for greater flexibility: 1) All Houdini Engine floating licenses have been automatically upgraded to Global Access Licences for no additional cost - allowing users to to bring licenses to the cloud for their own use. Until today, Houdini Engine floating licenses were available as either Local Access, which could only be used in a single facility, or Global Access, which could be shared with remote facilities or used on the cloud. Now all Houdini Engine floating licenses are Global Access, yet retain the same price as the Local Access licenses. 2) Weekly rentals have been added to the existing annual and monthly rental options for greater flexibility – price is $35 USD for seven consecutive days. 3) Monthly rental pricing has been significantly reduced - from $195 per month, to $100 per month - making short-term rentals an even more viable option. This shift aligns with the rental price drops for other Houdini products. LEARN MORE
