SideFX Houdini is an industry standard package for high-end 3D Animation and Visual Effects creation. The strongest USPs of Houdini lies in its:

  1. Procedural system (You create something through process, not by static / irreversible tools)
  2. Non-destructive workflow (You can go back to the first level of operations and edit it. The consecutive changes will be in coherence of the newly applied action.)

Both the things are driven by accurate mathematical algorithms. It provides much better performance in compare to manual working.

Houdini follows node based structure which makes it very effortless to handle larger and complex Animation and VFX shots. You can re-order the nodes or change parameters very easily. It don’t break down your final shot. This is the biggest trade off with its closest competitor: Autodesk Maya. In Maya pipeline, you have to use Python or MEL for creating something in procedural way. The default tools provide history operations, but they are not as efficient as Houdini’s node based pipeline. Well, it doesn’t mean Houdini is superior to Maya. In various post production studio pipelines, both are equally used depending on the nature of the project.
