Hi,

I've just installed Houdini with an Apprentice license. Are there any specific SOPs or other things not part of Apprentice?

I ask because I'm not able to find ‘voronoi fracture points’ or any voronoi SOPs via the tab menu other than ‘voronoi split.’ I have found ‘voronoi fracture’ via the left hand shelf. But it does not appear in the tab menu.

I also notice I have several DOPs in the shelf that are represented by an H icon and are labeled ‘undefined.’

Finally, when I select simple primitives (such as spheres) in the viewport or the network, the properties area is blank. I cannot see the translate, rotate or scale, for instance.

Are any of these Apprentice limitations, or has something gone wrong with my install?

Thanks!

Sounds like a graphics card issue , I would post up your specs and graphics card / driver version

Hi, I see now that Intel Cards aren't supported on Macs any more.

Would this explain all these issues though?

Thanks,

That seems to me more like bad installation. What happens if you start Houdini with Terminal?

Thanks. I've launched from the terminal and got the same result. I did spot two errors in the terminal about not being able to create temporary files in my user directory.

I've also uninstalled and reinstalled with the same errors.

I really hope I can sort this. The tutorials have got me well worked up.

I've now installed on a Mac pro and it's working fine. So I guess it was down to the laptop.
