The Orbolt Smart 3D Asset Store is an asset marketplace that offers a whole new way to create animations and visual effects. Powered by Houdini, Orbolt assets are fully customizable and ready to animate and render once tweaked to meet your specifications.

At Orbolt, members of the global Houdini community apply their knowledge and expertise to deliver a comprehensive set of completely customizable 3D assets, from fully-rigged props, to render-ready visual effects, animatable characters, game assets and more.

Now you can access high-quality 3D assets from a community you can trust to keep your project on-time and on-budget.
WHAT IS A STATIC MODEL?

A static model is a precise, but rigid 3D shape. Animating or making changes to static models is time consuming and tedious.

WHAT ARE SMART ASSETS?

Smart assets have features (sliders, menus, etc.) for quick and specific adjustments. The level of customization is limitless for the author to decide what can be controlled.


Smart assets are not restricted to just geometry: you can find effects, tools, shaders, environments and much more.


You can also load various smart assets into other DCC apps!

• Populate scenes with content
• Save time with Houdini tools and utilities
• Previsualization and Visual effects
• Load into other Digital Content Creation Apps
