SideFX Houdini FX 17 is a 3D animation and visual effects software developed by Side Effects Software Inc. It is part of the Houdini product line and is known for its powerful procedural modeling, animation, and simulation capabilities. Houdini FX is widely used in the film, television, gaming, and advertising industries for creating complex and realistic visual effects.

Key features and capabilities of SideFX Houdini FX 17 include:

Procedural Workflow: Houdini FX follows a procedural-based approach, allowing users to create and manipulate 3D content using node networks, making it easy to edit and update scenes non-destructively.Particle and Dynamics Simulation: The software provides advanced particle and dynamics simulation tools, enabling users to create realistic physics-based effects such as fluid simulations, cloth, rigid bodies, and more.PyroFX: Houdini FX includes PyroFX, a powerful toolset for generating realistic smoke, fire, and explosion effects.Vellum Solver: The Vellum Solver in Houdini FX allows users to create dynamic soft bodies and cloth simulations with precise control.CHOPs (Channel Operators): Houdini FX offers CHOPs, which enable users to perform advanced animation and motion control using channels and procedural techniques.Mantra Renderer: The software comes with the Mantra renderer, a high-quality render engine capable of producing photo-realistic renders of complex scenes.Python Scripting: Houdini FX supports Python scripting, allowing users to create custom tools and automate tasks.Digital Assets: Users can create and share reusable assets called Digital Assets, streamlining workflows and facilitating collaboration.GPU Acceleration: Houdini FX leverages GPU acceleration to speed up the rendering and simulation processes.
Houdini FX is a versatile software used for a wide range of tasks, including visual effects, motion graphics, character animation, virtual reality, and more. It is particularly popular for its ability to handle complex and large-scale projects efficiently. With its node-based procedural approach and extensive set of tools, Houdini FX offers flexibility and control, making it a powerful tool for 3D artists and visual effects professionals.

  • Operating System - 64-bit only Windows 10
    Windows 8.1
    Windows 8
    Windows 7 SP1 (future versions of Houdini will not be supported on Win7)
  • Memory 4 GB required
    8 GB or higher and 64GB strongly recommended for fluid simulations
  • Processor Intel or AMD x64 CPU with SSE 4.2 required. Houdini 17.0 will not run on a system with an instruction set lower than SSE 4.2.

  • Disk Space 2GB required for installation
  • Graphics Cards A GL4.0 compliant graphics card is required. GL3.3 cards will have missing features and lower GL versions will not run Houdini 17 at all.

    4GB VRAM or more is required. Less than this can result in display errors such as blank windows. High DPI displays (4K, 5K) or multiple monitors require a minimum of 4GB.

    Graphics card must support OpenCL version 1.2.

    The OptiX Denoiser requires a Kepler or later Nvidia GPU (K, P, M, V prefixes).

    It is VERY important that you install the latest driver for your graphics card. Failing to do so may result in display issues and/or slow performance:

    * NVidia GeForce GPUs: 390.77 or higher (don't use 376.xx - you'll have slow performance and crashes)
    * NVidia Quadro GPUs: 390.77 or higher
    * AMD: 19.Q3 or higher
    * Intel or higher.
  • Monitor Minimum resolution: 1920 x 1200 (widescreen).
    4GB VRAM or higher required for dual displays or single displays greater than 1920x1200.
    4GB of VRAM (or higher) required for High DPI displays such as 4K and 5K (3840x2160, 5120x2880)
    Color depth of 32-bit (“true color”) required.
    We recommend you either select sRGB as your color profile or calibrate your monitor to gamma 2.2.
  • GPU Acceleration * On certain graphics cards, Houdini can use the GPU to dramatically increase the performance and speed of your Pyro FX and Fluid simulations.
    * In order to take advantage of this capability, you'll need a GPU capable of supporting OpenCL. Refer to the Supported Graphics Cards page.
    * The amount of VRAM your GPU has access to will limit the size of simulation that you can run on it. 4GB + is ideal for larger simulations.
    * GPU acceleration currently does NOT make use of multiple OpenCL devices (i.e. two or more graphics cards) but this may change at a future date.
