Strange display of handles in Houdini 14

Recommended Posts

UPDATE. I have received this feedback from support:
 
I'm sorry that you are experiencing these problems. Our system requirements have changed for Houdini 14.0.
Your graphics card does not support Houdini 14.0.
You might get better performance by switching to Yosemite.

Hi guys,

 

I recently started my path on learning Houdini Apprentice (~1 month ago) using version 13.

 

Last week I installed the new 14 release and I'm really intrigued with these new handles.

 

It seems to me something strange and difficult to use. Maybe an OpenGL problem? (iMac with MacOS 10.9.5 here)

 

Are these handles display normal? (just open Houdini and add a simple box)

Thanks for your input, Elena.

 

I have deleted my prefs and nothing changed on handles visualization… :-/

 

Just in case, I deleted this entire directory: /Users/cristobal/Library/Preferences/houdini/14.0

It's an iMac 27" - 2.66 GHz - i5 (+4 years) with Mavericks 10.9.5

 

I'm running Houdini 13 Apprentice on same machine and works pretty well…

 

My goal is to learn the basis of this app along 2015, and then I will probably acquire a MacPro or at least a “high-end” iMac… and go to the Houdini Indie route.

 

Of course I can stay with 13, but just installed the new 14 (more a curiosity than a need…) and found these strange behaviors with handles. Other parts seems fine…
