Re: Record movements

One guy asked me what's about this app, I'll copy my answer here because you should understand the context: "I dropped Softimage exactly at that time because of its rusty SDK and absolutely horrible to the point of being called garbage Python "API". Thanks god I started learning programming back the...

Re: Houdini Indie Teaser

On topic of this thread, I've read on another forum that SideFX says that you cannot freelance at a company that makes for than 100K$ a year with Houdini Indie. This is also written on their web site. That sounds like it might be a big deal. Can you do freelance advertisement work for an ad agency ...
