Character animation Sept. 9, 2017, 7:43 a.m.

There are not many houdini riggers so it would be a challenge. When the rigger is open mindet they will work with houdini otherwise maya.

Example ofa rig that i find very good explaned: https://youtu.be/Eo6Lue1TMZU [youtu.be]

Animation in Houdini viable? Aug. 1, 2017, 6:43 a.m.

the note is from H14 we are now at H16 so i think the notes from 2 years ago are for the movie production and not for games. for game development houdini is surly the way to go but you need skills!

updates from H15, H15.5, H16 for animation:

Houdini Engine for Modo? July 31, 2017, 4:28 p.m.

sadly i haven't heard or read any news on this topic. whats clear is that for 3DS Max there will be a plugin but the question is when it will be released.

the open position on 3DS Max: https://www.sidefx.com/careers/software-developer-games-3ds-max-plugin/ [www.sidefx.com]

there was a simple plugin some time ago from ttvd but it has been taken down from github.
https://github.com/ttvd/HoudiniEngineForModo [github.com]

i don't think that SESI will make a plugin for Modo because to spend the resources for game engine market makes much more sense for them. i hope somebody from the community will do something.
