Any Denver, CO based Houdini artists? Oct. 4, 2018, 6:22 p.m.


Just wondering if there were any Denver, CO based Houdini artists that might be interested in getting together once in a while?

I'm freelance and have been using Houdini for about 3 years now.

Would love to talk shop sometime…


Unwanted Viewport Zooming Into Object Sept. 9, 2018, 10:53 p.m.


OK, this one is driving me nuts.
Using Houdini Indie 16.5x and I'll be happily tumbling around the viewport using my mouse and spacebar, and then, for no apparent reason, when I try to rotate around the object, and I press the spacebar and then move the mouse left or right, the viewport zooms INTO the object and doesn't keep the same zoom level as I had.

This only happens IF I move the mouse over the object. If I move the cursor in an empty area, it works as expected.

I'm sure I've hit some combination of keys to get this ‘setting’ to work as it is. If I restart, all is good.

This seems to only happen when I'm inside a GEO node, if I am at OBJ level, it works as expected.

What am I doing wrong?

NOTE: This issue is only present when I have a camera selected and ‘locked’ so I'm moving the camera view around. If I just use the normal viewport, it doesn't exhibit this issue/feature.

It would be helpful if you uploaded your .hip file so we can look at it.
