My hyper-stimulated nerd genes love dabbling in obscure “generative” software and node-based interfaces are just always nice, so quite imaginably, the now released Fabric Engine 2 with Canvas is just up my alley. For now it’s of limited practical use to me because the plug-ins for modo and Cinema 4D are still in Beta, but I might perhaps slap together a few assemblies just for fun. It’s available as a totally free unlimited evaluation (with a forced interruption every 15 minutes and a nag screen), which me like very much. For now that’s better than those 200 bucks a year for Houdini Indie, ‘cos my software budget at the moment is exactly zero, unfortunately.
