  1. Article on SideFX.com: https://www.sidefx.com/community/houdini-175-launch-event/
  2. The latest production build of Houdini brings exciting new improvements to the licensing and render restrictions on Houdini Indie while also adding a powerful new UV Flatten tool and important refinements to FBX import and export. The Houdini Indie program has been a successful initiative designed to provide indie animators and gamedevs, who have a gross income less than $100K USD, with access to the features of Houdini FX with very few restrictions. In response to feedback from the Houdini Indie community, SideFX is increasing the render resolution limit for image sequences from 1080p to 4K x 4K in order to facilitate the generation of high definition imagery, which is especially important for artists creating VR content. SideFX will also be issuing a supplementary license to all Indie users to allow them to install Houdini on a second computer/laptop, or to work in dual boot mode. The use of these two licenses is restricted to a single artist, who can only use Houdini Indie on one of these computers at a time as per the EULA. With these added features and the recent addition of third party rendering, SideFX has set a new annual price for Houdini Indie of $269 USD for a single year or $399 USD for a two-year term.

  5. We were not happy with the store we had so we are looking at alternatives - haven't found the right one yet.
  6. 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
