HQ Render Indie limitations? Jan. 12, 2015, 2:42 p.m.

I received a reply from Side Effects Support, stating that there are issues with some machine types on the Amazon EC2 system right now. However, given that this occurs before any information (as far as I know) is sent to the cloud and that some of you are having issues with local render farms as well, I believe this is a Houdini issue and not an Amazon issue.

I'll keep you guys posted.

Procedure of updating Houdini to newer minor version? Jan. 11, 2015, 8:56 p.m.

The installation of a new Houdini version is completely independent from any existing version of Houdini you may have on your system, therefore you will always need to do a full install when updating. Assuming you have no further need for the old version, best practice when updating is to run the included uninstaller in the Administrative Tools folder inside your Houdini install folder prior to installing the new version, otherwise you will end up with two different versions of Houdini on your computer.

Yep, same behavior here on Indie. Seems to be a bug introduced in the latest build. I've submitted a bug report, and it probably couldn't hurt for all you to do the same - a bunch of people reporting the same bug could light a fire under Side Effects to get it patched quickly.
