Houdini 18.0597 Wont Start After Splash Screen Oct. 16, 2020, 12:21 p.m.


I am having trouble starting Houdini 18.0597. It wont start after the splash screen or logo screen and sometimes I will get a message stating:

ERROR: Couldn't open resource file ‘'resources’' (No such file ore directory).

Happens after deleting Houdini 18 folder from my documents.

I tried reaching out to the support team and they do not really have a solution for this. The only way I found to start using Houdini 18 is to stop updating Win10 and Nvidia driver. I had to roll back to an older version of Nvidia to have Houdini working.

The solutions I considered and did not work with me so far:

1- Starting Houdini as Administrator.
2- Deleting Houdini 18 folder from my documents.
3- Clean re-installation of Houdini 18.
4- Considering another production Build.
5- Considering another daily build.
6- Starting Houdini with Nvidia High GPU Performance.

The only option that works with me:

Rolling to an old version of Nvidia driver for GTX 1050 with Dell XP laptop with 32GB Ram.

If you encountered this issue before and you think that you have a solution, then please help!

Wrinkles on Imported Character: FEM or Soft Body ? Jan. 30, 2020, 1:53 p.m.

Thanks for your advice. I am not considering muscles system in my workflow this time. If the character is covered in with clothes then there will be no use for muscles as most of the details will be hidden underneath the clothes. I am interested in FEM and would like to test FEM with facial expressions. How it would look and the impacts of it.
