anyone use Houdini on iMAC ?


Recommended Posts

I think this is the very best (MAC) solution.

The only problem is: sometimes I have to search for the cursor, and

yes use MagicPrefs for the MMB.

I am using an i7 iMac with 8GB RAM and Apprentice HD (though there is no use of all processors I think).

I plan to buy an 27inch i7 iMac too. How does it perform with Houdini. Any experience to share with larger scenes?


I bought one recently. It is very nice ! Houdini on 27 inch monitor is very amazing ! But you have to disable the new advanced GL (edit the environment var) and update the system to the newest version.

The simulation is very fast on the 27inch imac.

BTW, I bought the i5 iMac not i7, I don't think I need the extra speed with spending more $299.

If you have enough $, I suggest you to buy mac pro and get two 30inch monitors, one for viewport and tree view, the other for network view and parameters,etc..........It is good to see nodes clear and a big tree or character on the big monitor !!!. :)

Good luck !!!!
