Weta Digital, the winner of the six Oscars Awards and SideFX, the creators of Houdini, have announced the launch of WetaH, which combines the power of Weta Digital’s proprietary extensions and integrations with the award-winning Houdini simulation power.

It is a new cloud-based software service and VFX tool, which unlocks the potential of Houdini and Houdini engine procedural workflows across many facets of the pipeline through a cloud-based monthly subscription.

It enables studios and artists to take advantage of deep integration between Houdini and Weta Digital’s award-winning simulation and rendering technology through a unified real-world physics.

Some of the features are:

  • City Builder, an innovative procedural building technique.
  • MPI Distribution, high-performance computer architectures
