  1. Referenced Ramp Parameters

    can you explain how you set it up? i am trying to link 2 ramps with it, but i got stuck =( this is what i did: opmultiparm /obj/outside_ramp/outside_ramp /obj/outside_ramp/inside_ramp/inside_ramp
  2. is there a way that i can link a ramp to another? like right click copy parameter->paste relative reference i am doing ramp_parm_1.set(ramp_parm_2) in python, with python it only link the amount of ponits, but doesnt link the value or position of each point =( is there a special way to link ramps? thanks. link_ramps_python.hipnc
  3. new parmTemplateGroup

    found it, empty = hou.ParmTemplateGroup() (was going to delete the post but just in case some one need it.)
  4. spare to type properties parameters

    very handy trick =)
  5. new parmTemplateGroup

    i am creating a new HDA with python and unfurtunally doesnt use the parms that are in the subnet, so how can i create a blank new parmTemplate so later on i can add the spare parameters to it? thanks guys.
  6. is possible to just copy paste a license file from one computer to another? or have to do the all the licensing process again?
  7. look for fabio hair system, it handle white hair and guard hair, plus a bunch of extra features.
  8. get the normals of the curve points to point along the curve (you might need to reverse if they are pointing to the tips, you want them to look at the root of the hair.) now you can: 1 group the root point 2 move/displace along the normal (there is even a sop node for that i just forgot the name)
  9. Time Warp Effect

    there use to be a tutorial using chops and modifying the time with a curve that way you could speed it up or slow it at the begging, warp it etc.. very cool setup
  10. Vacuum, Cloth?

    you can have a attribute in the object and then the cloth get close to it will grab it, that way you can say if attribute is there dont peak, else keep peaking. would be interesting to see a hip file showing how you solve this issue =)
  11. pycharm and hou

    i am trying to set up the hou module in pycharm, so i added to the path of python2.7libs project structure and this is what i get. import _hou ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found. i am trying to find the _hou any one got something similar?
  12. is it possible to run Houdini in a table 32 bits? =)
  13. when I link some parameters some of the main node get crazy wire messing up the node. example Node A has some parameters link between them. example nodeA.parm("bla") and nodeA.parm("ble") is set as reference link to nodeA.parm("bla") nothing crazy one parameter looking at another one in the same node. now I want to create a new node and link all the parameters to this new node I want nodeB parameters to look at nodeA, after running the code witch is a regular stuff just setting parameters, some of the paramters in nodeA that were just a integer now have an expression poiting to another parameter =( should I create something like if its an expression use "setExpression" if is not an expression use the regular set? def linkParmsTo(source_node, target_node): """ Link the parms of the source node to those of the target node if a parameter with the same name exists. # Produced by: # Graham Thompson # captainhammy@gmail.com # www.captainhammy.com """ for parm_to_link in source_node.parms(): # Skip folder parms. if isinstance(parm_to_link.parmTemplate(), hou.FolderSetParmTemplate): continue parm_to_link_to = target_node.parm(parm_to_link.name()) # If the target parm exists if parm_to_link_to is not None: parm_to_link.set(parm_to_link_to)
  14. Export Houdini Fur/Hair to Maya?

    try Fabio Hair system will rock your world!!!! for exporting you might need to convert the hair into actual geometry and then export that as obj, fbx, alembic etc. and import that into Houdini. but importing all those curve might be heavy. what about just export the guide curves into Houdini and then use Fabio?
  15. how can I inflate cloth ?

    multi solver with cloth and sop solver, where inside the sopsolver you put a peak sop to push the geometry,?
