When i put my mouse over a button. It update its state slowly.
When I create geometris, it update its interface very slow,one button by one button..

You didn't mention what kind of video card you have. If you have an nvidia card, make sure you enable overlays in your video drivers, I think that makes a difference. Also make sure that Anti-Aliasing is turned off, or it will make Houdini VERY slow, like you're describing.

Talking

I got the problem finally. it's a system envirment variable. I change its value, and Houdini runs as good as before.

I'm having the same problem.... how exactly did you fix it... I just downloaded the apprentice edition and installed it. I assumed it was just going so damn slow because I have a duel pentIII 450 w/ 512 megs of ram and a tnt2.
I know I need a new computer but that has to wait... I just paid my tuition.

Ah, that would be your TNT2. Get a cheap GeForce card.

My Graphic Card is a Elsa Geforce 4 with 64mb DDR AGP 8X. My Desktop is a P4 2.5G with 1G DDRam. When I first run Houdini, it runs veryvery good, but later it runs so slow that i can't stand that damn speed.Slower than my Laptop with 16mb Gefore Go. Why Houdini studdenly runs slow...?That's strange.

Aeroplane,
What environment variable did you change? What value did you change it to?
