First off, everything I see that Houdini can do is pretty amazing. Coming from a maya workflow things are different. I'm trying to follow some beginner tutorials to get the hang of things. Problem I'm currently having is with the drag select. I go into wire shade, selection mode and then I can't drag select multiple points. I can individually pick them and grow the selection. But can't drag select the multiple points. Not sure what I'm missing. THoughts?

Select a part of the object, not the entire object, and then add the other part of the object in your selection. I can't select the entire object in one time too.

This sounds like a graphics issue. But try a daily build regardless. Make sure you're logged into this website, and then from the top, choose Download > Daily Build. Pick the latest 12.5.XXX build that is not marked in red.

hi and welcome ,

I go into wire shade, selection mode and then I can't drag select multiple points. I can individually pick them and grow the selection. But can't drag select the multiple points. Not sure what I'm missing. THoughts?
i suspect , from what im reading , that you are trying to paint the selection ..

if so , you can keep pressed the Select Tool button and select the Brush Picking mode instead of Box Picking .

i just tried and was able to select in both modes on build H12.5.316.22 .




.cheers
except the things that cannot be seen , nothing is like it seems .
