Split Flap Display - Problem

Recommended Posts

Currently trying to recreate the hip file from this old thread: 

 

another-airport_45.hipnc

And here is my hip file: 

display.hip

And the error I get on the copy4 SOP: 

Quote

Error:       Unable to evaluate expression (Undefined variable (/obj/Split_flap_display/copy4/val1)).

What am I doing wrong? Do I have to define the $MYLETTER var differently? New to Houdini so I still have a lot to learn.

on your attribute create "myletter" you need to check "Local Variable" so you can use $MYLETTER.

However I would recommend moving away from using local variables to attributes @myltter

Check out the new series of Rohan Dalvi if you are new to houdini.

@Sepu I just ran into another problem: 

Why does my animation look like this:

When it should like this:

Super confused what causes this problem. I think it has something to do with the animation on the null1 but I can not figure it out.

Here my current hip file: display.hip

I am super interested in the solution, maybe I will learn something new :)
