    1. Integrate Solids++ library 2. Improve viewport render - AA, AO, PBR, etc. 3. More polygon tools
  4. Direct Modeling HDA

    I'm glad to introduce my new asset for Houdini 16.0 / 16.5.
  5. Houdini 19 Wishlist

    1. NURBS 2. Curves 3. Slowly remove DOP context. Let us do all dynamic geometry actions in the "geometric" SOP context. Nice start in H18 with rbdsolver as SOP
  6. Houdini 19 Wishlist

    @LaidlawFX You have add more global wishes and this is normal. But then people started fantasizing about smaller things, not suspecting that maybe they were already added
  7. Houdini 19 Wishlist

    Guys, why are you adding wishes without an actual release? This is not ethical

  11. Direct Modeling HDA

    > thank you Alexey. I was confused at first. Any chance of tutorials on this? I am still somewhat new to Houdini. Anyway it is my fault Currently working on a few new simple features for 2.0. Next step is adding new videos
  12. Direct Modeling HDA

    bobc4d, exactly. It was fully revamped and was not a simple update. Yes, I know it is confusion, but I'm not a swindler. Given the time I spend on developing the DM, I’m practically not earning anything with Gumroad and work on enthusiasm. Really, after talking with some people who do not understand the essence of the problem, I generally want to close the sale on Gumroad. Then I will not have to prove anything to anyone. PS People, who work in DM, do not bother at all, but only enjoy using it...
  13. Direct Modeling HDA

    Just try to compare 1.0 and 1.5
  14. Direct Modeling HDA

    The problem is that DM 1.5 was that great relase A HUGE UPDATE (former DM 2.0). It has a new Modeler paradigm. So, why you so cruel?
  15. Direct Modeling HDA

    I wrote, for example, "DM 1.5 is coming" on FB Houdini for Artists group more then 6 months ago
  16. Direct Modeling HDA

    Given the HUGE amount of work done and many unslept nights, it’s foolish to blame me for not having business skills I'm going to say this one last time: Once, while working on 2.0, I decided to test how DM 1.0 works in Houdini 17.0. It worked with lots of bugs in the latest updates. Therefore, I decided to post the new version faster. Just at that time, it was announced about the release of Houdini 17.5. So I decided to rename future 2.0 to 1.5

    So, now you know that you don't right. Maybe you have to delete this anomal post

    DM 2 for Houdini released! Product link: https://gum.co/xKBKM What's new: General changes: 1. Soft Boolean 2.0: 1.1. Revamped core 1.2. Revamped UI 1.3. Better fillet build algorithm 1.4. Smart normals allows to get very nice models without tweaks 1.5. Faster then Soft Boolean 1.*, despite it always builds normals 1.6. Different analyzation modes 2. Insert Mesh 2.0 now uses smart normals, which leads to much cleaner results 3. Geometry Library 2.0 allows to save models with materials 4. Lots of DM HDAs fixes Modeler 2.0: 1. Edge Flow can be used to set flow for selected edges or using, previously inserted, multiply edge loops 2. Push tool now highlights edge under the mouse pointer, which leads to much stable use of RMB menu tools 3. Push tool can set flow for highlighted edge or loop 4. Flatten menu (Alt+F) now uses gestures. It is a very fast way to flatten components by left, right, top or bottom directions 5. You can now convert selected edges to loops with A+RMB hotkey 6. Align view is now works like in 3dCoat or ZBrush. Press Shift while rotating the viewport camera 7. ToolsPanel (Spacebar key) has now a "Custom" section - a place where you can use custom scripts or stock Houdini tools 8. "Relax Selection" tool, applied to edges, now uses a new Smooth Edges HDA. It allows to smooth selected edges as separate curves 9. More uses of mouse wheel in some modeling states 10. Extrude tool can now extrude edges in screen space or using Shift and Ctrl to move by the best axis 11. Selector is a powerful fast way to select geometry by features like, component normal or vertex count etc 12. "Pick Duplicate Material" tool can be used to quickly select material from face and assign it's copy 13. Extrude and MoveExtrude tools are now combined 14. Inset tool removed, use Extrude instead 15. Modeler menu now has more tools 16. Some hotkeys changes Modeler Topo: 1. New tools category "Topo" 2. Can be used to quickly create retopology of high-poly models 3. Use any of modeling tool and finish edits with a Project tool 4. Special red cursor indicates that you are in Topo mode 5. Native retopology tools are now better integrated into Modeler and Modeler menu 6. F1-F6 keys can be used to switch between TopoBuild SOP modes without actual state activation 7. Special TopoStripe tool can speedup retopology stage with drawing ribbons and circles Modeler UVs: 1. New tools category "UV" 2. "UV Auto Flatten" HDA automatically creates UV map. Can be used in combination with Unwrap and UV Layout tool 3. Unwrap HDA 3.0 is now integrated to the Modeler mode. Use Ctrl+RMB or Connect tool (V) to pick edges without needs for pressing buttons in the Parameters pane 4. Connect tool (V), called in UV viewport, sew edges interactively 5. MMB, Shift+MMB, Ctrl+MMB can be used to transform UVs quickly 6. Flatten menu (Alt+F) can be used to flatten UVs by left, right, top or bottom directions
