Side Effects Software and MAXON are pleased to announce the availability of a public beta of the Houdini Engine for Cinema 4D plug-in. The Houdini Engine makes it possible for Houdini Digital Assets to work inside other digital content creation applications. Now Studios can build custom effects using Houdini's node-based workflow and give access to artists utilizing MAXON Cinema 4D.


To run the Public beta, you will require a license which can run the Houdini Engine. Houdini, Houdini FX, Houdini Indie, Houdini Engine or Houdini Engine Indie licenses can all be used to run the beta. There is also a 30 day Houdini Engine trial available. Please refer to the following instructions to install the trial license. Please note that assets created in the free Houdini Apprentice edition will not load in the Cinema 4D plug-in.
