License Expiry Dec. 29, 2020, 7:44 p.m.

Unbeknownst to me while updating Houdini to .408 today my Indie license had expired today as well. Here I am trying to figure out why when launching Houdini it was asking for license key. I found out it has expired only after logging into my SideFX account and looking at purchase history/invoice.

Why no indication of Expired License in software pop-up? Or how about an email a few days in advance to let user know of upcoming end of license date? Other software companies do the latter.

ODTools for Houdini May 16, 2020, 4:51 p.m.

I can vouch for ODTools. I discovered them via the LightWave forums because I have the LW tools wishlisted (pandemic sale perhaps?) and bought ODTools for Houdini because I’ve grown to embrace Houdini now over other software.

Keep up the great work, Oliver!

It’s all fine now. Renderers all work in harmony. According to the PRM forum the RIS tab is meant to be removed one day. It’s not used any more.
