The Houdini Engine for 3dsMax plugin currently supports 3dsMax2017 / 2018 / 2019.

The regular Houdini installer includes Houdini Engine. You do not need to install both Houdini and Houdini Engine. You should only really install Houdini Engine (via the houdini-engine installer) if you only want Houdini Engine functionality and do not need to use Houdini itself or you only have a Houdini Engine license.

Houdini Engine for 3ds Max is bundled together with the Houdini installer. Once the Houdini installer is started, simply select the Houdini Engine for 3ds Max component, and the installer will install the plug-in to any currently supported versions of 3ds Max. The plug-in will be automatically available inside 3ds Max when the installation is finished.

Verifying the Installation

After the plugin is installed or updated, and after opening or re-opening 3ds Max, there should be a Houdini Engine menu present. You can verify that the correct version of Houdini Engine is being used by selecting the menu and opening the "Version Information" panel. It should show the version of Houdini that you installed or updated to.
