Houdini Indie and Houdini Engine Indie hit Unity store

The Unity plugin for Houdini Engine in action. The Indie edition of Houdini Engine is now available on the Unity Asset Store, along with the new $199/year Houdini Indie edition of the software itself.

Houdini Indie, the new $199/year rental-only edition of Houdini intended for studios and freelancers with an annual income of less than $100,000, is now on sale in the online Unity Asset Store.

The software includes all of the toolsets of Houdini FX, and exports FBX and Alembic files without restriction.

However, it saves scenes in its own file formats, and limits resolution to full HD when rendering animations with the Mantra renderer. Companies are limited to three Houdini Indie licences per studio.

Houdini Engine Indie and Unity plugin also available
Houdini Engine Indie, a low-cost edition of Houdini Engine with similar restrictions, is also available.

Houdini Engine Indie costs $99/year on its own, or $159/year when bundled with procedural track and terrain-generation system ProTrack.

Side Effects has also now released its Unity plugin for Houdini Engine, enabling users to load assets created in Houdini directly into Unity and have them remain editable within the game editor.
