Error messages when loading Houdini 18.0.287 Feb. 11, 2020, 8:08 a.m.

Did you find a solution to this? I have the same error after installing sidefx labs.

Cheers, Lukas

Hey maxster,

I had the same thoughts, when coming from softimage a while back. Now, as I‘m quite comfortable with using houdini and still not with scripting too much, I can tell you that you don‘t have to use too much scripting for most tasks.
If you can tell us which scripts from which tutorials you refer to, maybe we can give you some extra advice on that. In my learning process beginnings I was often confused by the ones to reference something into a solver for example but now I know, that I don‘t have to write them but I can also just copy the node, I‘d like to reference and paste it into the line, where it reads that. In most scenarios you can use scripting but than there‘s also another way to do the same thing. I think you can get quite far without it and learn bits and pieces of it on the way. You definitely don‘t need it to get started. I encourage you to try, because in my opinion houdini is really a joy to use, because it‘s always like, if you can think of something, it is possible. And after you understand some of the core concepts, it‘s becoming more and more fun to dive deeper into the rabbit hole and you understand, that it‘s just a rabbit hole after all and not rocket science - though I‘m pretty sure you could use houdini for rocket science as well

Cheers, Lukas

Hi, I do have pretty much the same errors here. How did you find out, that the instancing from packed primitives option is causing this? Did you have no further problems after not using this option?
