Hi Everyone,

Just a reminder that Monday, October 31 is the last day of the more than 
40% off
Houdini!  Here are the details.

The special promo pricing for Houdini Master licenses is as follows:

Master Workstation (node-locked) License : $5,195 USD or
Master Network (floating) License: $7,695 USD

- 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 via support 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.

To get you started we are also providing free webinars. Please check our
website for details and to register. Space is limited.
