Is it just me or is there a lot more people starting topics on here and odForce with the phrase

“I've been a Maya artist for *blah* years and just getting in Houdini…. etc.” 8)

Greetings to you all, hope you enjoy the experience and help to push Houdini forward.

Maya is great, when you have a good programmer who will write all the plugins to make it behave like Houdini!

Maya is great, but any Maya user knows that Houdini is extraordinary.

People, someone was just welcoming new users to Houdini and to the forum. Why should this thread transform into software bashing?
Bernard, the topic was clear and had nothing to do with merits of software.

I am a Maya user… who waited for OSX Houdini to jump ship, but I am a little concerned about my job options in my country with Houdini.
Maya tires and bores me.

Hi there. Just 2 say that you have to stop this game of comparing softwares once and for all. You have 2 keep in mind that is the result you able to achieve regardless of the application. All softwares out there have strengths and weaknesses and houdini is no exception. What makes the difference is the artist behind the computer and his ability to produce incredible images and the software whatever the name, is just a simple tool to help him accomplish his vision. Don't forget that IT'S JUST A TOOL!!!!!!

I think you're totally misinterpreting the tone of the original post, sir.

He sounds encouraged (as am I) by the fact the Houdini is becoming attractive to the Maya users. It's a positive thing for Houdini to get more interest and have it's technology expanded by a larger, more varied user base. No software comparisons/software bashing intended.

Totally, it's great to get people from other software with experience of other tools. People bring ideas from other workflow and tools to the forum and hopefully the good ideas get incorporated into Houdini and any defficencies can be addressed.
I assume that many people use more than one piece of software great if one of them is Houdini. Don't care to get involved in argurements about which is better. Why bother? (that's a retorical question by the way)

I am agree with Simon, I only hope that many supervisors begin to work with houdini too so we can have more studios to work in.
Un saludo
Best Regards

well, I'm a 3ds Max user / trainer also, Houdini is great but there are many things I'd still prefer to do in Max .. like traditional modeling / keyframing. Just because a Maya user is attracted and uses Houdini doesn't mean they have to “convert” Every tool has it's strong and weak points.
