  1. gtoup node

    the group node has been split into individual nodes, older tutorials will not reflect this. what kind of group are you trying to make, or what kind of operation are you trying to do? put down some of the other group nodes and have a look at what they do.
  2. you'll want all your textures to have the same naming pattern.
  3. ramp03diffuse.Base.1011 (what is the file format?...lets say .exr) ramp03diffuse.Base.1011.exr filename%(UDIM)d.ext so... ramp03diffuse.Base.%(UDIM)d.exr should work...
  4. check out the Constraints Tab on the shelf.
  5. there were many people telling us that the 'one node to rule them all' was often confusing and they had trouble figuring out where/what was going on, and there was interest here to split them up to make fixes/features easier to do in simpler code. personally I find copy/paste faster, easier and far less error prone than dragging nodes around. and there would have to be lots of logic for what you want to do after the drop - copy of nodes, move nodes, make reference etc RFE it if you think it's worth it
  6. do you mean drag a node from one network to another (of the same type)? copy/paste works, and each network type has it's own clipboard.
  7. you should send in a bug report https://www.sidefx.com/bugs/submit/ and newest drivers are not always better drivers the node ring can be turned off (or set to appear only at a distance) - hit "d" in the network, first option
  8. future build - and really it's just the back leg that will be new...and the tail.
  9. it's hard to see - turn on Display Capture Pose and you'll get a better idea of what they're doing
  10. among other things having less complex nodes (in our code) less complex to use (for the users) easier to update/change without affecting other functionality etc...
  11. "... for no good reason..." what if we had good reasons?
  12. scale!! of cameras and assets...really important to set some standards and enforce them.
  13. Apprentice is licensed on a month to month basis, and since it's free you can have as many installs as you want... so in your case, install Linux and then just install Houdini Apprentice
  14. while the March 3D World issue seems to have been released (not in North America yet?) I'll be deleting any links to the pdf of the issue. this has nothing to do with SideFX or H16 - it's just not cool to be posting issues of the mag - buy it.
  15. @rreno mine was just for the OP specific case
