Houdini is an incredibly powerful piece of software though you need to be a rocket scientist to know your way around it's interface. :)

Houdini is one [email protected] package.

Way overpriced, though.

I tried the Demo once; and I agree, I couldn't make heads or tails of it. Hopefully the documentation is better now though, along with some actual tutorials (at least I had trouble finding one). It does look powerful though; didn't they use it (at least in part) for Stealth?

Actually the particles are the expensive part.

select is $1299...i did get the demo once..a few years back...interface was...'intersting'...also looked at some 3dbuzz videos on it..didn't convince me to take it any further..i have the best software already...lightwve+3dsmax8.3....VERY hard to beat that combination!
