It is. I'll file a bug report and ref this thread. Thanks for the help, much appreciated.

If someone still struggling:

1. Install imagemagick via brew
brew install imagemagick

2. Add this line to your houdini.env

The .env path is ~/Library/Preferences/houdini/18.5/houdini.env

3. Relaunch Houdini

4. Set ImageMagick binary option to $PDG_IMAGEMAGICK in your imagemagick node

Hope that helps

PS MacOS Catalina, Houdini 18.5

Thanks, that helped,
but for me (Also on Mac) the path turned out to be:

PDG_IMAGEMAGICK = "/opt/homebrew/Cellar/imagemagick/7.1.0-6/bin/magick"

Found the path by using the "Find Any File" App, {Name} {is} {magick}, and choose the one that seemed best (not the Alias).

Be aware there is the "ImageMagick Binary" parameter-menu on the TOP node.

This worked, as opposed to the directing to a self-made $PDG_IMAGEMAGICK_DIR and the "Use System Path", which did not work.
As such: PDG_IMAGEMAGICK_DIR = "/Users/username/Documents/Codecs/ImageMagick-7.0.10/bin"

Maybe this helps someone.
