  1. Auto UV crashing?

    Hi auto UV is constantly crashing in H16.5 and H17. working wth the v1.72 of the gamedev tools. Am I the only one? I want to quickly do it on a car mesh around 600.000 polygons. thnx
  2. Hi everyone! I'm kinda new to Houdini and use it with UE4. My Digital Asset crashes all the time though so I thought I'll debug it with the Houdini Engine Debugger. This works well and actually is pretty awesome. When I reproduce my crash in UE4, the connection gets closed and the Houdini Console shows the following errors: Thrift: Mon Oct 29 18:09:38 2018 TPipe ::GetOverlappedResult errored GLE=errno = 109 Thrift: Mon Oct 29 18:09:38 2018 TConnectedClient died: TPipe: GetOverlappedResult failed But where to go from here? Is there a way to find out what node crashed? Or how should i proceed to narrow down the problem? Is there any kind of log file I could check? If you need more information, please let me know! Thanks for you help in advance! best, Ron
  3. Hi, I have a problem with running Houdini since I have my new computer. I already contacted support but could't figure out the problem yet. I hope somebody met with this problem or have some idea for a solution. So houdini is crashing after a few second, I cannot do anything with it. I made some test, seems like it crashing mostly when I press tab and start writing a node. any node. When I just open it it doesn't die instantly, but as soon as I try to do something it just crashes. Doesnt matter if I open a clean scene or open a scene I already have. Recently I got the following error message: 6440: Fatal error: segmentation fault. But in the past sometimes it was just quiting without any message. I had the smae problem since I have this laptop, with H 16.5, but somewhy one of the daily built was kind of working, crashing less frequently, but since H 17 came out I tried that, and it do the same thing. I tried the following things: Reinstalled Houdini many times, different versions, different drives, tried it all. Checked and updated videocard drivers, windows updates the latest (win 10, NOT developer/insider version), cleared registry. Checked Rams, videocard with stress test. and anyway all of the other software running without problem. Also tried turn off every other sofware while running houdini but its all the same. The laptop: MSI laptop with 6core i8, 32gb ram, geforce 1070. So that shouldnt be the problem. I clueless now, I have this problem since months. I would really appreciate any help. Thanks!
  4. Anyone else feel like 16.5 crashes more frequently than previous builds? One way which can be replicated is hitting esc whilst creating a flipbook. This is quite annoying. 16.5.405, CentOS 7
  5. Hey there, Got an interesting crash/not responsive on windows here the other day. Its a fluid sim.

  6. Hi , I am building currently building an HDA with an important interface (lots of tabs and multiParm list inside multiParm list .. ) so I wanted to use python in "Menu Script" to list a string array stored in the detail attribute to populate on of my ordered menu, after I finally got it to work on a null to experiment then I tried to replace my previous ordered menu with manually typed string with the new one using python script and houdini crashes each time I try. What's weird is that I am able to read the channel and access the value with no problem outside the HDA. Does anyone knows why this is happening, am I missing something here ? Edit : It seems that when I try to return the string inside the HDA, it gives me -1, but even if I just print that value, houdini still crashes and why it return that value only inside the HDA ? Also when I enable "Use Menu Item Token as Value" I am able to return the corresponding ID of my selection without crash, but I want the string value of course. The python script I use : node = hou.pwd() geo = node.geometry() menu = [] data_list = geo.stringListAttribValue("data_list") for data in data_list: menu.append(data) menu.append(data) return menu
  7. [SOLVED] Hello. I just got a new motherboard, cpu and ram cards and now Houdini will crash when simulating. Sometimes it's just the program, sometimes I get the blue screen with error codes SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION and SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED. Everything was working fine with the old hardware and I could play the sim all the way through. The sim is much faster with the new hardware except it will crash eventually. The sim does slow down before crashing, but I'm only using about 40% of my total ram. Everything with the new hardware seems fine otherwise. Here are the hardware specs: Motherboard: From ASUS Z87-K to ASUS Z370-A CPU: i7 3770k to i7 8700k RAM: XPG 16GB DDR3 to PNY 16GB DDR4 PSU: Seasonic M12II-750 Bronze I have the latest drivers for my graphics card installed. I installed the hardware myself and am a total noob, FYI. I wouldn't know if my PSU is good enough for the hardware and I assumed it doesn't matter which slots each hard drive gets plugged into, so I plugged them in somewhat randomly, but it's all working. There's not much else I can think of where I might have screwed up, other than plugging the fans into opposite ports from what they were before (CHA_FAN1 is now in CHA_FAN2) or using too little/too much thermal paste... and the new hardware isn't compatible with any of the old hardware and vise versa so I can't test it that way. Thanks for reading and for any help.
  8. Hello Folks, My houdini is keep crashing even if file is empty. Any Thoughts ?:( Thanks Rajwinder Cheema System Model: Alienware Area-51 R5 BIOS: 1.1.10 Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7820X CPU @ 3.60GHz (16 CPUs), ~3.6GHz Memory: 32768MB RAM Card name: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Manufacturer: NVIDIA Chip type: GeForce GTX 1070
  9. Nobody else is having this issue on Windows 10? Since 16.5.405 up Houdini just crashes for me on start up. marking some segmentation error. I updated my nvidia drivers and still same issue! Nico.
  10. Hello, i am currently working on my final student projet where i make a plane crash with Houdini. I base the workflow of this project around the RIGIDS III tutorial by Steven Knipping. Everything is working fine until i bring in a simple glue constraint, and when the simulation gets activated at a said frame the simulation simply does not happen. It works when i disconnect/disable the constraint. I already tried to unpack the alembics upon importation with the alembic node but that didnt change anything. What is weird is that everything was working fine when i used the model given with the course. I haven't really found anything that helped me online, so hopefully one of you can help me with this issue, i would appreciate it A LOT. I will attach the files down below. Thank you ! plane_sim.rar
  11. MPlay Crashing...

    Hi! For some odd reason after I create a flipbook, I click file>export>video for windows 64 bit, and that crashes. It started doing this when I updated to Houdini 16.5 from 16. Anyone have any ideas why this would happen? If I do video for windows 32 bit, it works. I used to be able to do for 64 bit in houdini 16. thanks
  12. Hi guys! I have a question, and problem for my, the question is that I'm burning a simulation of simulation of Pyro, but Houdini crashed in the middle simulation, the problem is how I reload the simulation in the point that houdini crash? Thanks, I sorry my english no is very good:)
  13. Opening one scene I get a 'Load failed for... Unexpected end of .hip file' message. The hip file does open but most of the nodes are missing.. Does anyone know why this is? Is there a way to fix the hip file? The previous two versions are also corrupt but the one before that is fine. I can't think of anything that might have caused it. I updated from Arnold4 to Arnold5 and its possible that happened between those versions but my other hip files seem to be fine..
  14. Hey, guys! I'm a bit flummoxed as I've been exporting Alembic files from Houdini to use in 3D Studio Max for a while with no issues. But I've been struggling with a particular file all afternoon that's causing Max to crash. I've dealt with alembic files at least twice as large as the one in Max without any issue, so I doubt it's a size issue. I pulled the file back into Houdini and had no issues with the file in Houdini. I've tried both Ogawa and HDF5 formats. I've tried it on a couple different computers with the same results of Max crashing. It crashes when it gets about half way through both playback of the alembic as well as trying to export a Vray proxy mesh. Now, the effect in question does rely heavily on a boolean opperation from houdini to basically dissolve away a mesh, so could this have something to do with it? Any ideas?
  15. Is the anyone who uses Houdini Engine with 3Ds Max? I tried to use it with Houdini 16.0.557 and 3Ds Max 16 SP3 and SP4, but there was an error message "HoudiniEngineFor3dsMax2016.dlo> failed to initialize." Error code 127 - The specified procedure could not be found ". I reinstalled Houdini few times, checked PATH environment variable - there was no results. After there I installed Houdini 15.0 and Houdini 15.5 - and error disappeared (and in Plug-in Manager appeared HoudiniEngineFor3dsMax2016), but when I tried to create HoudiniEngine Mesh Plugin 3ds Max just crashes. Could you help me please?
  16. Hi everyone ! I need help for a project that I need to finish before next week, I have created a crack propagation (with VDB) on a simple geometry in Houdini, but unfortunately when I play the animation of the alembic exported file in Maya it makes crash the application… A workflow is described by Wayne Hollingsworth from gnomon here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHLDS3SrZfs&t=3025s between 1:02:50 and 1:05:00 but once in Maya he uses Vray proxy import instead standard import to keep UVs. I share with you my houdini file (hiplc, h16), the alembic file size generated in houdini is under 100Mo As I am pretty new to houdini there are maybe some mistakes, if you see something wrong or if you have an idea to solve the problem, tell me thank you very much !

  17. Hi, I am testing some very simple pipeline tools and I would like to make houdini crash I realize that it is something most people fear and I do as well but now it would be handy if I could call some python/hscript function, which would make houdini crash Juraj

  19. FEM keep deform after impact

    How do i keep deform from impact on a FEM simulation. Or what is the better way to do this.
  20. Every now and again my houdini apprentice crashes with the "display driver stopped responding and has recovered" error appearing afterwards. I downloaded the latest Houdini apprentice and re-installed it more than once after seeing some old (2011-2012) posts on this subject on a couple sites. The strange thing is it crashes mainly when I do pyro sims but also when I'm doing non-intensive stuff to (basic SOP stuff). Does anyone have any advice on this subject please? PC specs: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit AMD Phenom II 3.4 Ghz 32 Gb RAM Radeon HD 5800 with 750mb RAM of which I also have and installed the latest drivers
  21. Hey, I've been out of Houdini for a bit and wanted to get back into it. I download the latest production build and started to play around in it. But the first thing that I notices was that when I rotate the camera (alt+drag) it imminently crashes. I am able to do basic work in Houdini without it crashing. I am on windows 10 if that matters. Has anyone seen this before/ know how to fix it?
  22. Hi guys, I am a beginner with Houdini and I have a strange problem. Yesterday night, I ran a simulation on my Mac (twice) and everything went fine. Today, I tried to run the same simulation on a PC (windows 7 and the same amount of ram) and Houdini slowly ate all the ram and crashed the app. Any ideas? There are some parameters to change/optimize? Thank you for your help. best regards, Lazza79
  23. Hello Guys, I have been working on a FLIP sim for the past couple of days and it keeps on randomly crashing when I cache it using Rop output driver, the error is : "1420: Fatal error: Segmentation fault" This is really annoying, I updated my version of Houdini but it didn't solve the problem. I read on the forum that it is a GPU problem, but it doesn't seem very clear, can someone confirm that? I am wondering if I should invest in a better GPU card (quadro range) but I want to be certain that it will solve the problem. Here is my current configuration : - Intel Core i7 4930K3.4Ghz - 48 Gigs of RAM - Geforce GT640 4Gigs Any help or info on this would be really really appreciated!
  24. Hi, I am new to Houdini so to speak and I am having intermittent problems with rendering a shot using Mantra's PBR for a personal project. If I persevere with staring the render every time it crashes it will eventually render a couple of frames and then crash again, the mantra node will then have its red lined error which when MMB clicked will give me the 'Command Exit Code - 1073741795'. This doesn't crash Houdini just the render. My scene consists of simple geometry (majority shaded with just a clay shader, but one grouped object that has a glass shader and stainless steel shader applied) with animation, a caustics environment light and a single area (sphere) light for soft shadows. I am just looking for an explanation as to why Mantra keeps crashing, and what I could possibly do to fix the issue as it is lengthening the scene render times and requires me to keep a constant eye on it. My PC specs: Processor - Intel core i7 3770k overclocked from 3.5GHz to 3.9GHz Corsair H80i Water-cooler GPU - 2 x Nvidia GTX 780 RAM – 16GB Kingston Hyperx Beast (if you want more info just ask) I have disabled the SLI on my 2 GPUs as I have read that Houdini doesn't deal well with multiple GPUs. I have also set both monitor outputs and assigned PhysX from the one GPU just to be sure. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  25. Hi Guys, I really need help with this. What I have is a complex Truck rig coming in from animation. Its got multiple moving parts and some parts need to break apart as it gets hit and collides with objects. I have managed to fracture the object and transfer the animation back onto the frags via a nice matrix transform setup I found on Odforce. The trouble I'm having is how to bring animated frags (packed primitives) into Dops and how to control them becoming active either on collision or at specific frames. The other thing I cant figure out is how to get the active pieces to be still glued or constrained to the other animating non active pieces. Presently I'm trying to achieve this with Packed Prims as I have alot of pieces and its lighter in Dops but I have tried doing it the old fashioned way with Deforming RBD Fracture objects, but I still have the problem of Controlling when objects become active and then constraining them to the non active animated pieces. The best way I could think to illustrate this is when the windscreen shatters its still constrained to the non active window frame so that it continues along with the moving truck. I have attached a super simple truck file that's been cleaned up off my tests, as none of them are working anyway. I would really appreciate any help anyone can give me on this, Its driving me crazy not being able to figure this out. Cheers.
