ianoreo posted a topic in General Houdini QuestionsHi there! I've found a lot of topics somewhat talking about this, but haven't been able to get anything working. I am trying to constrain or parent geometry to an animated FBX bone. In my scene, a character emits particles from their mouth, but that animation is at the SOP level. I could use a rivet, but that only tracks the position of the bone, and not the rotation. If I use a Parent Blend constraint at the Object level, nothing from the Sop level animation affects the child. Am I missing something on how parenting works in Houdini? Or perhaps there is a better method to accomplish this kind of constraint relationship? Thanks for any help!
