Selling Houdini models on Trubosquid April 16, 2018, 1:28 p.m.

I think your best bet would be, but either what Michael said or that, will send you in the right direction.

As a side note - I'm just trying to be useful, not presumptuous - have you considered the financial ramifications? Last time I've checked, a few yrs ago, they take more than half of your income (60%?) until you'll “upgrade” to a 40-50% (don't remember which) based on your sales volume. And then, there's an exclusivity clause, which will preclude you from selling anywhere else and will have an influence on your bottom line one way or another.

I have been selling on Turbosquid since many years (3ds Max scenes so far) and I think it's a good deal that I get with them. They do a wonderful job at support and promoting my models and they are the top market place for 3D models. I tried to list on a different market place for a while (the second one in size at the time I think) and I didn't get a single sale after a year on that other one… Si I went back on the Turbosquid guild where i always get regular sales.

I am already diamond so I get 60% and they keep 40%. If I sell from links on my own webpage, I get 80%. So if someone thinks he ca make a better job at promoting his models but still want to use the Turbosquid infrastructure, you can keep 80% which I think is fair.

Selling Houdini models on Trubosquid March 15, 2018, 11:28 a.m.

Hi all!

Let's say I would like to sell Houdini rigged models with some animation and fur on Turbosquid and I have only the Indie License.

Would that mean that only indie license users would be able to use my assets?

Is there any way to sell models for both Indie and Full license users?

Thoughts on mantra Dec. 10, 2017, 5:11 p.m.

Hi very interesting thread. I'm a freelancer with a 13 slaves render farm now still using max+V-Ray and hoping to switch to Houdini + ?. Maybe when v-ray4houdini will be ready I will use it. But I look at what places like Main Road Post [] do with Mantra and I'm really eager to learn Mantra too even though my first test with it were noisy slow and discouraging. I'm happy to read some posts here explaining how it can still be a very useful renderer and we can also couple it with redshift for some jobs were speed is the most important factor.
