  1. Just in case someone want's to do something similar. I've ended up just using the spline function. Instead of a matrix I've choose quaternions and the position vector wich gave me quite acurate results.
  2. This editable option is inherited to all children. So create a subnet in the hda and do the procedural creation inside the subnet.
  3. you will need to unlock it first. https://www.sidefx.com/docs/houdini/hom/hou/Node.html#allowEditingOfContents If it is your own hda you can also predefine it as editable using the node tab in the type properties.
  4. I have a little challange for you guys: How to interpolate a transformation matrix of an instance point in a non linear fashion? Here is a file for you to give it a try. interpolate_transforms.hiplc

  6. Compress Cache with PDG

    Hey, I want to compress caches with PDG. The idea is to split the cache in bundles of ~5 and compress them to then be uploaded afterwards. So what I would need to do is remap the work items in a way that they group to a fifth. Every new work item contains the 5 paths to the bundled cache files. If I got this setup I can trigger a python script to trigger the compression. Can someone help? Edit: I just found the filecompress node and will use that.
  7. Linux Houdini and floating panel are not linked

    Hi Martin, this is more of a desktop manager issue. What desktop manager are u using? Maybe consider switching.
  8. Howdy!

    Great to have you guys still around! How did you experience the community changing? Sometimes I read older posts and feel like back in the days the community was more skilled and willing to share, but maybe I'm wrong and it's just the few posts standing out?
  9. Houdini 19 Wishlist

    The default flipbook cancel behaviour should be to keep the current frame. I think there is a shortcut for this, but I keep forgetting about it.

    The only thing you can't sculpt on are the hair generated at renedertime, no?

    Things that would make life so much easier: 1. In manual mode truly don't cook anything! 2. If ESC is pressed just chill and stop whatevery you where doing.
  12. ik with constraints

    To fix the snapping you should place the pole further away. Haven't had the time to play a whole lot with kinefx, but why not use it? Especially for somethin like this it should be perfect.
  13. Is there an easy way to render lines in mantra with constant width ignorin the cameras perspective? I have an approach, but it feels too complex. Involving the cameras frustrum to calculate the needed scale factor.
  14. Python3 Import is strange

    Hi, I'm updating my python scripts, but it behaves weird when importing with python3. I got a python3.7libs folder in my HOUDINI_PATH. Inside there is my lets say "tools" folder containing "__init__.py" and "test.py". In "test.py" there is a test function hello_world. If I now "import tools" I would expect to be able to call test.py by "tools.test" , wich is not working ("tools has no attribute test"). Only if I do "from tools import test" it works. Also if there is another python file in the folder called "utils.py" I'm not able to "import utils" in test.py. What am I doing wrong? Edit: My bad. I need to "import test from tools"
