Houdini Flat UI

If you’ve been clamoring for everything flat in your applications, then you are in luck! If you are a qLib user, there is an option to flatten up Houdini’s UI a bit.

If you head to the regular old Color Settings under the Edit menu you are going to find that the qLib library added a couple of extra color schemes. You have the option of using the Pro or the ubiquitous Dark scheme in a flat version.

It may not be to everyone’s liking. Especially if you long for the days of Skeuomorphism in UIs. I personally dig it. I like the red touch in the sliders. It’s a subtle change but does not feel as bubbly.


Before and After






I am a motion designer & developer based out of South Florida. When not designing or animating pixels, I wrangle some code. If all else fails, I watch Twilight Zone, I Love Lucy, or Three's Company reruns.
