  1. Modeler 2021 Released!

    thank you for quick response. I installed those two folders: MODELER & PACKAGES into H18.5 preferences (which I created) but Modeler 2021 does not show up on list of shelves. attached is my C:\user\doc\H18.5 folder
  2. Modeler 2021 Released!

    installation says to install Modeler2021 into Houdini 18.5 "preferences" folder. is this Houdini 18.5 program folder or one on C:\user\documents . . . I do not have a Preferences on either program nor on user\documents folder so I take it I have to create it? I have modeler installed on E:\modeler 20
  3. Simple Way to Disconnect Edge?

    you could use polybevel, select the two edges, slide to distance you need, fillet set to NONE, then you'll have to select resulting points which moved and bevel them back to level to edges.
  4. how to add points to a curve?

    have you tried SHIFT + LMB at location you want point?
  5. never mind. the OP said they were modeled. I would delete my original post but do not see a way
  6. this is from a WIP forum at SideFX. I cropped it down. but how would one go about creating a texture map for this, especially the "lit" windows. I have googled spaceship texture tutorial but nothing really came up I have always sucked at texturing
  7. thank you ryew, I appreciate your input on this. No I have not tried nor did I know I could, clearing RAM via cachemanager. I will give that a go and I do use filecache to save to disk.
  8. would restarting Houdini clear RAM to help with particle creation or should I reboot PC? I have 32G RAM
  9. Modeler 2020

    hello, I too am having this issue now. I have latest daily build for win 10, 18.0.484. the radial menu does not show nor does pressing spacebar bring up menu
  10. The little things about houdini

    I've been using Houdini for about 2 years now (came from C4D also) and the one thing which drives me nuts is how sometimes things do not happen as expected. like I create a node and then click enter and I have no handles in view port, try again nothing, select move - enter no handles, rotate - enter no handles, scale - enter no handles, back to show handles - enter for third time then they pop up. ARG
  11. the hobo

    at first I thought you had modeled that crate and was going to say what amazing materials and render . . photo real then realized it is a real photo. LOL that is a terrific build an brilliant idea, any time you can save money is well done.
  12. Extra edges after fuse issue

    I cleared your rotates on 3rd box and those lines went away. if you need that rotate, then this will give you some direction to go. now as to why, not sure.
  13. Houdini 19 Wishlist

    H19 wish list? I just wish 18.5 would come out. I would love to see a projection/camera mapping/camera calibration like C4D, where you take a photo and turn it into a 3D world without all the guess work and moving objects around
  14. I found a bug, using 18.0.432, when you use PointWeld and hit "Q" key you get attached popup. you cannot clear it out and only way to shut Houdini down is through task manager. I filed a bug report and they were able to reproduce it. so if you are going to use PointWeld multiple times, restart node for each PointWeld and do not use Q key.
  15. yes, there is a commercial for Bush's Baked Beans which has a golden retriever which talks. only his mouth is CG and the way it is blended in looks amazing, so very real it is hard to tell from actual dogs mouth.
