Houdini 9.5 ships

Having completed its beta program, Side Effects has released the full 9.5 version of Houdini, its professional 3D animation suite. This is the first version of the software for the Mac, but changes from past versions include improved documentation, with phrase and Boolean searches as well as division into beginner, intermediate and advanced instructions.

Other features include Illustrator import, FBX, QuickTime and Torque Engine export, and miscellaneous interface enhancements. New effect options include wave, river and fracture tools, and more than a dozen new types of surface nodes. The software requires Mac OS X Leopard, and an Intel Mac with 1GB of RAM. A Houdini Escape subscription costs $1,995 per month, while a Master one is $7,995; a personal version of the app costs $100 though, or nothing with watermarking and limited resolution.
