All the preferences and settings that you customize in Houdini are usually saved in your home houdini directory.

Linux is $HOME/houdini
Windows is $HOME/Documents/Houdini17.0
Mac is /Applications/Houdini/Houdini17.0.300/Frameworks/Houdini.framework/Versions/Current/Resources/houdini

Substitute your version number after Houdini above.

You can do a date sort listing in these directories to see what has been changed recently.

The options for managing the startup dialogs are in the main Houdini Help menu. Bottom two options.

Mantra flicker on far away objects 2018年10月22日11:05

Try setting the Raytracing Bias parameter on the Mantra ROP (Rendering > Shading > Raytracing Bias) to a smaller number. It defaults to 0.001 so try 0.0001.

I wonder if it could also be a transform deform issue with precision in the crowd agents. Maybe the cap's transformed slightly differently than the head skin causing the two to interpenetrate.

Is the cap placed as a prop in the agent or is it part of the base deforming mesh shape?

Btw the agents look awful cute.
