Houdini beginer, Probleme with Smoke VDB render April 16, 2018, 8:59 a.m.

I'd also recommend turning off preview render (see attached) to test noise using buckets instead.

Edit SOP: Slide on Surface not working? April 5, 2018, 8:04 a.m.

Until it's fixed, as an extremely cumbersome work-around…

1. Select points using Edit mode - If you are in Slide mode, switch to Edit and then select points. You may need to click an empty area to clear selection first.
2. Once points are selected, switch to Slide mode - You can only use the value ladder or enter values manually. (Viewport transform just doesn't work)
3. If you need to select different points, go back to step 1.

I found it easier to use the buttons on top left for switching between modes. (Using the parameter interface toggle for slide doesn't switch back to edit mode when turned off)


Mantra Render Error 1073740791 April 5, 2018, 7:21 a.m.

Hi, when trying to render this, I noticed a lot of errors related to the texture images. Mainly due to them not being on my system but a couple mentioned unrecognised file type. Also, you've applied the principled shader to the fish but not the eyes, which seem to be referencing a missing material. I suggest looking at the textures and/or the directories/naming.

I've attached a version where I've removed the missing references and replaced the HDRI with one that is shipped with Houdini. Maybe you can use it as a starting point to relink your images to find the problematic one.
