tooltips June 8, 2017, 4:58 a.m.

thanks, i did that but unfortunately it has no effect.

tooltips June 4, 2017, 7:53 p.m.

this is a bit embarrassing but how can i turn off these tooltips in 15.5?

it is so annoying. i can hardly move the mouse anywhere without getting one. i didn't have these in older versions but i don't remember whether i turned them off or whether it was the default.
i did of course go through the prefs but nothing i did helped. i even been through houdini.pref but whatever i thought of could be the one didn't help either.

for the record i know that according to the docs it should be under the edit menu but it's not there. in fact compared to the included docs other entries are missing from the edit menu as well.

New Website: Post Feedback Here July 18, 2016, 8:44 p.m.

To me (and others I’ve talked to) the SideFX site now looks like all the other technical product websites and that’s not necessarily a good thing to me. Heavy on images and wasted space, low on relevant information. The previous main page provided a lot of more direct information with regards to customer stories and company news as well as upcoming training (when it existed) or other events. Now you’re presented with scrolling series of massive and scrolling images that are short on useful information. There is a single item visible for customer stories, news and tutorials whereas previously you were presented with a lot more.
that nails it perfectly! and sadly goes for most sites these days. even worse, the new site not only got absolutely nothing individual but also copied all the problems that such sites have, too. like for example completely unnecessary and way too much use of js. i can't even see the login form without js, wtf?
the design however is really poor. actually, can it even be called “design”? especially for one of the biggest shots in the gfx industry the non existant level of creativity is a joke.

i'd scrap the whole thing, sit down and think of what actually makes sense and then come up with a worthy representation of one of the oldest and most advanced gfx companies in the industry
