STUDENT LICENSES

Students can download our free learning edition called Houdini Apprentice. This is a node-locked license that has all the features of Houdini FX with some restrictions such as a limited render size and a watermark on final renderings. Houdini Apprentice also does not let you load Houdini Digital Assets [.hdanc]  into host applications using the Houdini Engine plug-ins therefore assets you create in Apprentice would have to be loaded using Education licenses in your school lab.
