Houdini wins two Academy Awards! Jan. 4, 2018, 4:20 p.m.

We're incredibly excited to announce that Houdini, SideFX and several specific developers - Jeff Lait, Mark Tucker, Cristin Barghiel, John Lynch and Mark Elendt - have been selected for two Academy Awards: an Academy Award of Merit (Oscar Statuette) and a Scientific & Engineering Award (Academy Plaque)!

“Houdini’s dynamics framework and workflow management tools have helped it become the industry standard for bringing natural phenomena, destruction and other digital effects to the screen.”

A huge congrats to the other winners - including developers at Disney Pixar, Industrial Light & Magic, Foundry, Rhythm & Hues Studios, DreamWorks Pictures - and to all 34 of the winners!

Thank you also to the thousands of artists worldwide - and developers from the past - who have contributed for over 30 years to make it what it is today! []
