Nyx SideKick makes it very easy to incorporate Houdini into your 3ds Max workflow. By using a live connection between both programs Max and Houdini can talk directly to each other which create some very powerful workflows options. For example you can model a car in Max, send it to Houdini to blow it up, and get the fragments and fire* back in to Max. Once this has been setup you can make changes to the car model and with a single click run the new model through the Houdini graph and get updated fragments and fire for the new model. Make sure to watch the tutorial video below to get a feel for the workflow and a glimpse of it’s capabilities.
If you use Max as your main tool and know a bit of Houdini you never need to buy a VFX related plugin for Max ever again. Works fully with Houdini 16 Indie and FX.
