Feature Request: 'feature complete' 3ds max Houdini engine plugin like MAYA. May 3, 2017, 6:15 a.m.

Sidefx is looking for a developer for the plugin: []

The curret one was developed from a external developer so the feature complete ness is not given.

If you know a 3dsmax plugin developer sent him the job offer. That will help more to progress the plugin development.

Daily builds are back online April 13, 2017, 5:43 a.m.

Call me a little whining negative Nancy here But i feel lately that the daily builds should be called “monthly” builds… or am i checking the wrong link?


A. []

it can sometimes depend on what OS install you're looking for. there may be an issue with Windows (or whatever) that causes the daily build to fail but these things are addressed right away.

Cheers. Perhaps i'm not undererstanding properly. But is “houdini-16.0.557-win64-vc14.exe” being updated everyday and keeping the same name? Or am i to expect a new name (558, 559, 560… etc) for each new daily build?



daily builds means that for each working day there is one new build for the common client. so you are correct for each day there is a new nameing with a new number.
on the same day there wouldn't be multiple builds public or i haven't seen them or the big studios have got another access to the builds. when you analyse the first H16 build it had more suffixes then normal that's indicates internally SESI has much much more builds then we see public.
Example: houdini-16.0.504.20-win64-vc14.exe

maybe someone from SESI can tell it better but one thing is for sure it's much better then a service pack release cycle
