  1. we all know that we can use $F for padded file name when outputing sequencing images. but, i am wondering whether we can do this for hip filename or not? i tried like "test.$F4.hip" , but the new saved filename still could not append 0 instead of "test.$F5.hip"... can someone explain how? thank you in advance

  9. can we append prefix 0s to file name?

    noo.i think i didn't say correctly . sorry all i want to know is that wheter it is possible to save filename like test001.hip, test002.hip, test003.hip ... each time you save your hip file, houdini will do it for you. ( I tired to name the first file test001.hip, but the next time I saved file, the filename was test2.hip, instead of test002.hip)
  10. in Houdini 6 CHOP editor, when i want to use "tie/untie selection" to untie two segments then do some adjustment to make them smooth. but the handles don't come up. In houdini 5, it does have those two handles. why? attched image is from houdini 5 when untie selection.
  11. where are the handles in CHOP editor

    arrr. sorry .just forget my question. i just found that i didn't toggle on a button "Slops and accelaration"

  20. computer dies

    have you experienced when you click the tab menu in houdini, and the computer suddenly dies, the displayer becomes black and you have to restart computer? this things happened to me many times in houdini 6? haven't happened in houdini5.5. most of the times it happens in VOPs and COPs.. maybe i work on these area a lot currently. is it my computer's problem? how to fix it? thank you in advance.
  21. computer dies

    windows 2000 service pack 2 ATi Radeon 9700. driver is yehh. the graphics is not good for houdini. but usually it only makes the houdini program frozen dead, it won't crash the windows. this thing hasn't happened in houdini 5.5 . weird~~
  22. give what shader to fire particles?

    i learned how to create fire using particles. but dont know what to how to apply shader to particles before rendering... without right shader, all particles are grey spheres when rendering... i cannot fine tutorials about applying shader to particles. in HOudini 4's demo, they all used materials, but i cannot see what to do in Houdini 5 or 6.. i think this is a seam when houdini using SHOP instead of materails. plz give me a hand. thanks in advance.
