Houdini 12.5 released


New features in Side Effects Software's 3D application include:

  • Cloud FX - a complete cloud sculpting and rendering toolset.
  • Ocean FX - offers the ability to deform geometry into animated oceanscapes using volumes. An Ocean FX Wave Tank tool lets you further generate a FLIP fluid simulation derived from an animated ocean surface. For even more realism, a unified Whitewater solver is available to create spray, foam and churn based on the underlying FLIP fluid sim. A new Mist tool can then be used to further enhance the whitewater effects.
  • OpenVDB volume sculpting tools - native support for the open source C++ library dedicated to efficient storage and manipulation of sparse volumetric data, which is developed and maintained by DreamWorks Animation.
  • Optimized lighting and rendering pipeline - new relighting options and optimizations in IPR (Interactive Photorealistic Rendering).
  • Built-in support for delayed-load Alembic primitives - results in much lighter data passing to either the viewport or the Mantra renderer.
  • Various other improvements such as volume lights, new Bullet RBD constraints, a new PolySoup primitive type for optimizing large models, point primitives, a surface remesher, etc.
