The Houdini Engine for Maya plugin currently supports Maya2016 and newer versions.

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.

Fastest way to get the plugin working inside Maya:

  1. Download and launch the Houdini installer.
  2. Follow the steps and make sure to select the Houdini Engine for Maya 64-bit option on the Houdini Engine installer screen.
  3. Launch Maya.

The plug-in will be available inside Maya, when the installation finished.
