  1. Few nodes won't work on OpenCL

    Hey, Thanks for your reply. I switched to CPU and I got this error: OpenCL Exception: Could not create OpenCL device of type (HOUDINI_OCL_DEVICETYPE): CPU on platform vendor (HOUDINI_OCL_VENDOR): Intel(R) Corporation. The built-in CPU driver may not support your CPU (-32) Also, I checked my memory and it seems to be fine. It's not taking up that much memory.
  2. Few nodes won't work on OpenCL

    Hello, I am trying to work with OpenCL but as soon I enable them on few nodes, like the gas disturb, gas turbulence, it stops working. I just get a mushroom smoke effect. Does openCL not work on these fields? I have attached some screenshots. The first image is without OpenCL, the second one is with smoke disturb disabled and the third image is with openCL enabled on Smoke disturb.
  3. Oh thanks. I thought that it might be causing the problem but when I drew another curve, it didn't happen, so I wasn't really sure why. Thanks for clarifying.
  4. Hello, Thanks for your messages. I have attached the file. Trying an old tutorial. In the control tab, you can control the crack. After the values go above 0.94, it disappears. The warning sign on the boolean is there even before the geometry disappears. FloorCrack.hipnc
  5. Hello, I am trying to do a boolean operation, I have a curve which uses a carve SOP to shrink or grow, I have used a polywire to give it some geometry and I am using this geometry for input2 in the boolean operation. But when I change the carve, the main object that is connected to boolean input 1, keeps disappearing and reappearing. Does anyone know why this happens? I am using a subtract operation in boolean. Thanks for you help,
  6. Burn vs Fuel

    Hello, I am following a few tutorials on how to make an explosion/fire. Some of them use the attribute burn and others use fuel. Can I please know if there is any difference between the two? Thank you very much.
  7. Gas Disturb - Help

    Hello, I am really confused with Gas Disturb node. I tried reading the documentation and tried different values but I haven't seen much difference when I change the Threshold Range value. Can some please help me and explain what exactly the Threshold Range is doing? Thanks.
  8. Hello, I downloaded Houdini 18.5 and installed it but I am not able to run. I see it running as a background process but nothing happens. Can you please help? I tried running the Houdini license administrator, but even that is stuck at the Connecting to license server screen and once it connects, I get the error as below. Thank you.
  9. Thanks a lot. I didn't know it was that simple.
  10. Hello, I am following a tutorial on DOP Networks and Rigid bodies but when I apply a quickshade outside of the dop network and try to Import it as an RBD Object, it doesn't bring in the texture. I am not sure what is wrong? Can you please help? Please find attached the scene file. Thanks. TextureProblem.hipnc

    @Aizatulin This is great advice. Thank you for taking the time and writing this out. It really helps. After many years of trying with Houdini and going back and forth, I have finally found time to learn Houdini completely. I am really amazed by how wonderful and powerful this software is. And thanks to this forum and people who are ever helpful, it's making my journey to learning very easy. Thanks a ton.

    @Aizatulin Would you recommend a good tutorial for VEX?

    Strangely it's not working for me. This is what I am trying. I am still new to Houdini, so I am not sure I am doing it the right way. SortProblem.hipnc
