SideFX Houdini

Houdini is a 3D animation software application developed by Toronto-based developer SideFX, and is widely used in the VFX industry for procedural animation such as smoke, fire, water and other effects. It is an increasingly important part of the VFX toolkit, and one we encourage all our students to learn, both in and out of the classroom.
