Houdini is a 3D animation software used primarily in film production. Houdini features procedural modeling, which allows the user to alter objects by changing parameters rather than manipulating polygons directly. This makes the creation process less sequential and more flexible. The software's dynamic simulation capabilities are also notable because they allow for simulations to be created that interact with each other, like smoke and fire or liquids with rigid bodies. Houdini can be used for lighting and rendering, making it possible for users to create fully realized scenes within its interface without the need to export elements into other programs.
