I got the free Houdini Engine Indie license yesterday, but once I finished downloading and installing it, I'm only able to access it as Houdini Apprentice.

Why would it do this, and is it a problem I should be worried about?

Houdini Engine Indie is a non-graphical license. It will not allows you to open Houdini Indie (which is the graphical version).

The “Engine” is meant to be loaded into another DCC that has support for it (Maya, Unity3D, etc.)

This allows you to load Houdini files in other DCC's and have them “cook” as they normally would as if they where running inside of Houdini natively, but the output it given to the host DCC.

So you get the benefits of Houdini proceduralism inside of your DCC.
