[HtoA]Arnold ROP totally broken

Hello. I've just installed Arnold to Houdini and tried to render a quick simple scene.


I laid Arnold ROP and tried to hit Render in render view as well as render to disk in Arnold top, nothing shows up and Arnold ROP displays this error below.

I've tried both of my HtoA trial version and educational license and none of them work displaying same error message.

Ok. I've wiped and reinstalled macOS 3 times, tried about 5 production builds including versions in 17.5 with different htoa versions, installed htoa on different locations and still they give me same error.

I tried to check driver_houdini.dylib and open it with terminal(Because whenever I hit render, Arnold ROP says it can't load this file) and it says they can not be executed because they are in different format.


It's a new macbook pro 16 and apparently hardware or somethin doesn't support Htoa....... Gave up ;(

I just tried with HtoA 5.2.1 and still getting exact same error. Could this possibly happening because of compatibility issue with Catalina?

I don't think so, because I'm using HtoA on my other MacBook, which is Catalina

Can you please try the latest HtoA 5.2.1 to see if this resolves your issue?
