This is to remind you that our First-timer promotion ends on
Monday, October 31.

Side Effects is pleased to announce an exciting new promotion
for first-time commercial customers of Houdini. Individual,s
or studios, looking for a new level of flexibility and
control can now save money while enjoying the benefits of
Houdini's procedural node-based workflow.

The Houdini First-Timer promo is for workstation or floating licenses and
- includes Annual Upgrade Plan*
- includes 2 free Batch licenses for 6 months**
- includes unlimited mantra render tokens
- includes early access to Houdini 12

*The Annual Upgrade Plan includes all upgrades, including H12 when it
becomes available, and technical support viasupport at sidefx.com. It also
includes access to our Support Issues Database where you can log and
track feature requests and bugs.

**As an added bonus we are including 2 six-month rentals of Houdini
Batch. Houdini Batch offers you command-line access to all of Houdini's
features. It can be used on the farm for many tasks such as the creation
of render scene files, the batch processing of dynamic simulations, the
creation of multiple "wedges" to create iterations more quickly, or the
caching out of geometry sequences.

Since Houdini Master comes with unlimited Mantra render tokens, these
batch licenses let you keep your workstation free for interactive work
while you render on the farm. Houdini also comes with HQueue, an
artist-friendly job management tool which utilizes Houdini Batch and
Mantra for streamlining all these kinds of tasks. Once the 6 months are
up, we would like to talk to you about your experiences with these back
end tools. This will help us ensure that they are meeting all of your
production needs and fit well into your pipeline.
