I'm wondering if there are newer builds of Houdini Engine for Cinema 4D that support H16.5? It seems like there's a separate cadence of releases for C4D that's lagging quite a bit so maybe this is something more on the Maxon end.

Same here the get houdini installer link downloads houdini 16.0.633 which is not helpful. Does sidefx produce the engine plugin? can I download it from the sidefx website somewhere?

There is a new update for Cinema today and I installed it and it is still showing 16.0.633 version for houdini engine, which is very disappointing.

So what's our way around this? Do we have one? I finally updated to 16.5 and now I'm finding NOTHING works in Cinema which is where I use Houdini and I regret updating entirely. Is it possible to roll back to 16 until they sort their pipeline out? This is maddening.

It's always possible to download and install builds for older major versions of Houdini (back to 12.0 at the moment) from https://www.sidefx.com/download/daily-builds/ [www.sidefx.com] If the latest build of the major version that you need doesn't work, you can ask support for a specific build, though it's best to try the latest build first. (It'd be nice if we could provide direct downloads of all builds, but it'd be a network nightmare.)

SideFX does not produce the Cinema 4D engine plugin.

Sorry that I can't be of more help.

Is it possible to run both the 16.0633 version for the cinema 4d compatible Houdini engine and a 16.5 version or can you only use one license at a time?
