Houdini 10 3D software optimizes OpenGL support, more

updated 04:55 pm EDT, Wed April 29, 2009

Houdini 10 launched

Side Effects has launched Houdini 10, updating the node-based 3D workflow tool with optimized OpenGL support. The update also adds stereoscopic 3D content, smoke and fire capabilities via the new Pyro FX toolset, and raytracing and physically-based rendering through the Interactive Photorealistic Rendering feature.

Houdini handles tasks such as 3D animation, modeling, rigging, particle effects and compositing. Two professional versions are complemented by a slimmed-down Apprentice edition; prices range from $100 for Apprentice HD to between $8,000 and $10,000 for Master, depending on license type. The software requires a 64-bit Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X 10.5 or higher.
