+ Rules has being changed....thanks for the tip by Joe Drew!! Side Effects Software an industry leader in 3D Animation software, recently announced a new $99 version of Houdini called "Houdini Apprentice HD" - the Starving Artist edition! It's a full-featured version of Houdini for non-commercial work, and it has NO WATERMARK on renders, and only a resolution limit of 1920x1080 for animations. Schools and training facilities will also benefit from this program as students working with either the free Houdini Apprentice or Houdini Apprentice HD will be able to bring their work into the computer lab and render watermark-free at HD resolutions. Institutions interested in learning how Houdini Apprentice can provide low-cost solutions to their students, please contact Side Effects Software’s Training and School Accounts Manager Aliza Sorotzkin for more details.
Both versions of Houdini Apprentice include all of Houdini Master’s features except for the ability to render to third party renderers. Each copy of Houdini Apprentice comes with one Mantra render token. The Houdini Apprentice HD “Starving Artist” Edition is now available for purchase online through the Houdini Store.
