Houdini Indie vs Houdini FX for Remote Artist 2020年5月17日15:46

Indie license is incompatible, it reduces to an apprentice license IIRC, and also not allowed via the license restrictions. i.e. you can't sell your services by providing a .hiplc file.
I know this is a year old post but I just stumbled onto this.

So, when I'm ready to profit off my work in Houdini Indie- I can't? It's a bit confusing…

I'd need to get a Core license?



you can earn money with houdini indie but you can't share .hip, Geo, shaders,…. files as a project work. final render files can be sold.

you can read the license agreement or get in contact with SideFx for full clarifications.

Will there ever be Houdini Engine for Godot? 2020年5月12日18:47

Use the houdini2godot.json file move into package folder.
Edit the file paths in the file and it should find the python class.

You can test it in the houdini python panel.

Import houdini2godot

if there is no error then it should work.

NOTE: i have only tested under windows.
