Check this out!


I was just checking out Side Effects Software’s website & found out they are launching Houdini 5.0.

I talked to some friends who beta tested it & they said it is really great. I heard they are giving away free evaluation at the launch too.


------- info --------

Side Effects Software is happy to
present Digital Domain, and the
company?s work on ?The Time Machine? at our launch of Houdini 5 and
Houdini Select on March 14, 2002. Event attendees will also receive a
FREE Houdini Select Evaluation (details available at the launch event).

The evening will feature David Prescott and his 3D team from Digital
Domain, presenting their work on the DreamWorks SKG motion picture, The
Time Machine. As the film?s CG Supervisor, David will reveal Houdini?s
integral role in accomplishing the 250 breathtaking shots for the film.
The DD team used Houdini to design, animate and render (in Houdini
Mantra) everything from complex L-systems to time-lapse-like

Our team will also reveal the newest Houdini developments, from the
revolutionary interactive animatable handles to unprecedented viewport
workflow. With Houdini Select, priced at $1999, Side Effects Software
brings you a new level of productivity and value, making Hollywood-level
tools accessible to any artist at any facility. Houdini Select is the
