  1. Houdini 17 Wishlist

    Attribute Vops - Capacity to display any custom attributes in the left ‘attributevopglobal’ node without having to use ‘bind import’ - Eg : if I create a custom attribute “aa” and pipe it into an AttributeVop, it should automatically be visible in the list of inputs. - Similarly we should be able to export the custom attribute out via the ‘geometryvopoutput’ node without having to use ‘bind export. - Auto insertion of conversion nodes. - Eg : while piping an integer output to a float input, Houdini should automatically insert an ‘integer to float’ conversion node in between. - While we are at the topic of auto conversion nodes, maybe a smaller, unique node shape can be used to for such nodes to help visualise and free up available screen space for large networks.

    Say what ? I was under the impression it was 'in a couple of months time' or 'two months time' for Houdini 17. I didn't hear anything about a September 2018 launch date.

    use the new group promote node to convert from one type to another after you have created your group
  4. 3D Mouse recommendation and tips

    Oh Hey, I had already set that because the default didn't seem intuitive. Switching the direction ( and slowing down the speed ) really helped too. I thought there was some global switch that took care if each axis. Thanks though. Now if only ZBrush supported this :/
  5. Ok.. so .. How do I setup the wheels of a car that follow a null but retain independent rotation? parenting uses all the transforms types ( SRT)

    Thanks. Useful tips. One question : where is this reverse setting? I am using a mac

    Make the poly split node handle multiple splits under one node. Just have the split operations appear as a list in the node's Parameter window, or display them in the group/expression slot ( 1-2, 4-7, 12-63 etc ). Color code the newly generated edges when the node is selected and if the user hovers the cursor over any split edge, the group list automatically highlights the connected points/edges/faces. The user can then remove them from the list and thus undo that particular split ( without having to invoke a blast node )

    Declare expressions null and void. Every parameter can changed, tweaked, driven , accessed, modified just by drop down options. Also Cd = Color, N = Normal, P = Point position ( is that what P is ? ) in the VOPs network ... Please Don't kill me
  9. Poly Bridge

    The subdivide node seems to throw up some bug and doesn't evaluate the edges properly where the polybridge joins the two ends. It treats them as 'unfused' The workaround as of now seems to be to add a 'çlean' before adding the subdivide node. OR maybe add a fuse node after the subdivide Thanks to friedasparagus over the sidefx forum. Edit : It might be due to the fact that the normals for both primitive sets are in the same direction. Add a reverse sop to either one fo them before the bridge.

    hmm. Yeah. Any idea how to have the netbox expand to show longer text?

    @TepeYou might be onto something here. I have posted a similar issue on the side fx website. Hopefully, someone will have a solution. Link : https://www.sidefx.com/forum/topic/48450/ Polybridge.hiplc Houdini Polybridge Error.mp4

    doh !!.. Thanks Was this in Houdini 15.5 as well ?
  13. Houdini 17 Wishlist

    It's a bit tricky but yeah, I can attest to the fact that too many nodes is one of the most daunting factors when learning Houdini. While I like the general direction Houdini is taking with splitting up nodes into smaller nodes that do one thing ( like the split up group nodes that make it much easier to use them ) in some cases it might be undesirable and downright confusing. Not to mention following older tuts adds to the confusion Eg : I just used the duplicate node and the node type shows up as Copy and Transform Sop (copyxform). Flummoxed I used a copy and transform node and it is the exact same thing. Perhaps some house cleaning is in order. And while we are on the topic of wishlists reg nodes... a way to collapse a chain of nodes under one 'folder' or 'pack' node would help reduce the clutter, especially for a chain of nodes that are accessing or passing information only one way ( not talking about subnets etc ). A simple toggle can collapse and uncollapse them.

    Do you mind uploading the file ?

    Unclear what you mean by bad Topology. From your screenshots the topology seems to behave as expected.
