Concept Art. Is Houdini up for it? Jan. 1, 2018, 9:34 a.m.

@old_school sorry Houdini is discussed exactly like this in the Vfx industry. It is dismissed with one line such as ‘you don’t model with Houdini'. TBH didn't know it was controversial to say you don't do concept work with Houdini. I look forward to anyone who actually does. In regards to ‘starting up new thread’ you may notice 3.5K+ posts, 800+ bugs and Rfe's that I have contributed to that exact purpose but hey…

Yes, but is based on the public notion, and followed which creates problems for the software maker. Rumors etc. are not healthy. Im sure Houdini is capable of anything that other software can, you just have to go around it in a different way.

Hey #Neil78 Sounds good. Oh a biological world? You mean inside the body?

I got a link at Polycount to a plug that this Russian artist wrote. I was wondering if there was a “polystein Kit” kind of plug for H. You could write it, but its important to support others good work. And there is but more complex which is perfect for my artistic endevours. The artist´s name is Alexey Vanzhula.
Here is a link if you want to check it out.

Like #oldschool so kindly took the time to write. There is NO tool like this on the market right now.

Thanks to you all.

oh thank you so much for your kind words. Well, yes, Houdini seems to me like a tool I could use for my work. I want to be able to understand how it thinks at first. Even the small things are important to me and I´m definetely ready and happy to invest lots of quality time in it, and tools that align themselves towards what is being created are always the one´s that really speak to me.

As an artist, its really just overwhelming because you can do so much in it

Also thank you for the link. I will be hanging here, reading and getting ready to start diving into it. There seems to be lots of people who have the knowledge and it would be really sad if I didn´t take advantage of it.

Yes, I have no problem learning a new tool if it benefits my work and allows me to be more creative giving me possibility to do the things I want to do. I´m more than happy to become a nub in order to learn something. Its part of an artists quest I think. Houdini also has alot speaking for it. All which can be used by a concept artist. Thank you for your great advice. As a student we struggle with the notion of being capable or learning “enough to”. I think that it is important to use not the most popular but the best tools.
