[Sidefx-houdini-list] Pyro container boxes wont hide!

This has tripped me up before. So you need to do two things:

1. On your smoke object go to the Visualisation Tab and turn off ”Bounding Box”.

2. To echo Matt, are you sure you’ve set it to Smooth Shaded? By default Houdini uses Smooth Wire Shaded and the ‘w’ toggles between that and wireframe. If you set it to Smooth Shaded all should be good (shift + w in the viewport toggles between the Smooth Wire Shaded and Smooth Shaded). This catches me out more often then I'd care to admit.
