Does Houdini Indie support using Houdini Engine to export HDA to other DCC or game engines? April 5, 2019, 4:59 p.m.

BrandonA
Houdini Engine (and therefore the Houdini Engine plugins) will not work with an Apprentice license.

Houdini Engine will work with a Houdini Indie license, however! Therefore, you will be able to use the Unreal or 3ds Max plugin with Houdini Indie.

Hi Brandon, thanks for the answer.
I've sent an inquiry about the Educational license yesterday, but it looks like that I haven't got the response.

Does Houdini Indie support using Houdini Engine to export HDA to other DCC or game engines? April 4, 2019, 3:05 p.m.

I have a very tight budget. I've installed Houdini 17 Apprentice and I have a free Houdini Engine Indie license, but it does not allow me to export HDA to 3DSMAX or Unreal.
Does Houdini Indie license allow me to do that? And what Houdini Engine license will Houdini Indie using? It seems that they are not the same but they still confuse me by its appearance.

How to install Houdini Engine for older version unreal (Unreal Tournament 4, 4.15.3)? April 3, 2019, 7:13 p.m.

I'm struggling to set the pipeline between the Houdini16 and Unreal Tournament 4. The HDA assets are build in Houdini 16.5.473, and this Houdini version only supports UE4.17+
However, the Unreal Tournament has stopped receiving support from Epic and its UE version is stuck at 4.15.3

I find that the probable Houdini version for UE4.15.3 is 16.0.X.


But when I download the older Houdini, it surprisingly bypass the 4.14/4.15/4.16, showing it can only install on 4.13 and 4.18/4.17…
How the hell can this happen?

I tried to go to GitHub
https://github.com/sideeffects/HoudiniEngineForUnreal/tree/Houdini16.0-Unreal4.15 [github.com]
Download the plugin and extract directly to UE4's plugin/runtime folder
But still no luck
According from the instructions on git
I find that I should be using Houdini 16.0.699
But this version is not visible from the downloading list..

How can I find a tool to allow me to build the HDA pipeline from Houdini to UE 4.15.3? Or one more step forward, build a pipeline to Unreal Tournament 4?
