  1. Hi Am I correct in assuming that NO FBX export options exist for Indie users? Is there any other way to export an animated mesh without having to purchase a full FX license? There is no mention of export limitations under the feature comparison chart for File Formats https://www.sidefx.com/filmtv/compare/
  2. Hi, I've recently installed CentOS 7 on my 2nd SSD, so that I now dual boot Win 10 and CentOS 7. However, is there any way of utilizing my Indie license currently registered on my Windows partition? This should be possible, but SESI won't provide any information on this, as "it is not designed in that way". So if there's any geniuses who knows how to tackle this, I'd be happy to know! Cheers!
  3. Hi My understanding is that Indie v 15.5.528 supports Octane but NOT Redshift. Is this correct? If so, anyone have an ETA for Redshift support?
  4. Purchased and installed Indie but when launching I am now informed my version of License Server is too old. (attached)I had previously installed and was using Apprentice. So then tried uninstalling everything via the uninstaller, and reinstalling Indie once more. Launched Indie, License Administrator launches, chose ‘I have a paid license…’clicked ‘License Settings’…same error. A few questions 1 How do I upgrade my license Server? 2 Confused about 'local' vs 'network' licensing. I assume I am using local licensing since all my licensing info is in my 'licenses.local' file. But if this is the case shouldn't Indie launch WITHOUT using the license administrator? 3 I am installing on iMac but later want to transfer to a PC. But reading the licensing info it mentions that you are only allowed to return your license twice What happens if you want to return a 3rd time to install on a different machine? Over the course of 2-3 years I see this as a fairly common scenario.
  5. Has anyone successfully installed Houdini indie 15.5 and then configured Arnold HtoA 1.11.2.
  6. Hi guys, I have a problem using Houdini Indie 15.0.459 - when I try to open a hipnc file (as usually attached in this forum e.g. as example files) I get this dialog mentioning that the Indie license will be downgraded for this session to the non commercial version if I press "ok". When I press "ok", however, I get the same dialog again and again with exactly the same question. Each time the position of that dialog slightly changes to the right side of the sceen but I'm not able to actually reach a point where Houdini opens the hipnc files. When I cancel the dialog the file isn't being loaded either. Is this a common problem? I have searched the forum and google but found nothing... thanks for your help in advance. Marco
