I Think it´s a little shame on sidefx for not have a descent and updated version of houdini engine for 3ds max! I think it´s a lot and lots of companies of VFX, game cinematics, and game developers that can use in the pipeline!
I don´t use Houdini in 3dsmax because we don´t have houdini engine in 3dsmax simple that!
If I want to use? of course I want! If other people want to use! for sure!
So PLS make it happens! Houdini Engine for 3ds max ASAP!!
