HOUDINIFX OVERVIEW

Physical Simulation & VFX

Houdini FX combines superior performance and physically realistic dynamic simulation tools to VFX artists creating feature films, commercials or video games. With its procedural node-based workflow, Houdini FX lets you create more content faster to reduce timelines and enjoy enhanced flexibility in all your creative tasks. 

Houdini is perfect for Visual Effects artists and technical directors with its particle and dynamics environment. Houdini FX includes all the CORE features for a complete toolset that includes tasks such as lighting, animation or procedural modeling.

Fire & Smoke

With Pyro FX , Fire and Smoke simulations look more realistic and are faster and easier to set up. The speed gains in Houdini are significant allowing for more iterations. The ability to simulate using the GPU takes things to a whole new level and advances in volume rendering create an impressive final look.

Water & Liquids

Create realistic sims using forces such as surface tension, viscosity, and visco-elasticity. Particle fluids can be surfaced at the geometry level to produce high quality splashes while fluild forces are used to create white water effects.

Dynamics

Whether you are creating dust and debris or a flocks of birds, the particle tools in Houdini let you define a clear set of rules using a simple node network made up of sources, forces, attractors and collision objects.

Bullet Rigid Body Dynamics

In Houdini FX, you can use the Bullet Rigid Body solver to create highly complex simulations of large data sets. This solver and Houdini’s own solver work with various forces, constraints and collisions for complete control.

Solids

The Finite Element solver analyzes the stresses on an object then either bends or breaks it. FEM can also be used for soft body effects with volume preservation. This solver takes the simulation of digital destruction, and gooey slimy objects, to the next level.

Fast Cloth & Hair

New VELLUM multi-solver brings FAST cloth to Houdini along with other integrated effects such as hair, soft bodies and grains. The Vellum solver is GPU-accelerated and very easy to set up and iterate.

Sand & Snow

Position-Based Dynamics is a multi-physics environment ideally suited to the creation of wet and dry sand. The VELLUM and PBD solvers can run on the CPU or on the GPU using OpenCL. In addition to sand effects, artists can create solids, sheets or tethers to generate soft body, cloth and wire-like simulations.

Rag doll Dynamics

The crowd tools use artist-friendly shelf tools along with packed agent primitives, a Finite State Machine solver, hardware accelerated display of instanced crowds, controls for crowd layout, rag doll dynamics, steering, collision avoidance, terrain adaptation, motion blending, and look-at targets.

HOW TO DOWNLOAD & INSTALL HOUDINIFX

  1. Unzip and unrar to a temp directory
  2. Start installation

3.Before Starting Houdini, you must first set up the shell environment.
At a C shell prompt (csh, tcsh, bash)

go to /Applications/Houdini/Houdini[version]/Frameworks/Houdini.framework/Versions/[version]/Resources

type the following:

    source houdini_setup 

This command initializes the current shell’s environment to run
Houdini.

4.Licensing:
Stop license server (from the license server menu or sesictrl -q)
Copy the sesinetd (from Crack dir) matching your version to
/Applications/Houdini/Houdini[version]/Frameworks/Houdini.framework/Versions/[version]/Resources/houdini/sbin
and
/Library/Preferences/sesi/
Make sure you dont change file access permissions (in other words make sure the binary is executable chmod 755 sesinetd in case)
Restart license server
Tip : check md5 of the running sesinetd to make sure you replaced it
another way to really kill / restart the server , just copy paste this command as root or sudo
ps aux | grep sesi | fgrep -v grep | awk ‘ { print $2 }’| xargs -n 1 kill -9

Launch the License Administrator by typing “hkey” or from the launch menu.
In the Server Information you will find your Server Name & Server Code

Launch the Windows Houdini Keygen or the Linux keygen or our OSX keygen
(OSX keygen will generate your keys on your desktop , click generate button (bottom right keygen)
Enter your Server Name & Server Code
(those can also be obtained this way : sesictrl -n)
and generate your license keys …

Go back to the License Administrator
Select Menu License Administrator/Manually Enter Keys…
Copy paste the keys you generated 5 by 5 .
Key string #1 should be SERVER your_server_name server_code …..
You can also enter your keys this way : sesictrl -I key

NB : Install the “other keys to play with” at your own risk, those are mainly
for dev and debug … so Make sure you installed the License keys first

  1. To start Houdini Master, type “houdini”.
    To start Houdini Select, type “hselect”.
    To start Houdini Halo, type “hhalo”.
