17.5 Announcement March 9, 2019, 9:35 p.m.

in short verbiage what is PDG? is it like Takes but on super steroids?

I think time will tell exactly how much this will impact the small players, but for big VFX houses working on massive projects, this is a game changer for sure.

From what I understand it's mainly about work flow and pipeline efficiency. Game world/assets generation is a trending topic right now in the game industry, but before PDG it take a lot of Houdini and python wizardry to do that, only big company can afford people proficient enough to make such pipeline. Now I can see a lot of indie and middle sized team will start to embrace Houdini in post-PGD era.
