"Arnold's tight integration in Houdini is very popular amongst our VFX studio customers. We are pleased that artists will now be able to try, learn, and actually use Arnold while benefiting from Houdini Indie's much lower starting price," says Marcos Fajardo | Solid Angle"
Houdini Indie support will also be available for V-Ray and Redshift soon. Both of these renderers are in closed testing right now, with open releases coming sometime later in 2016.
Houdini Indie is available for $199 USD per year. The Third Party Rendering feature is added to Houdini Indie's already rich feature set at no extra cost. Indie customers with active subscriptions when Houdini 15.5 is released will receive updated licenses free of charge.
