  3. Direct Modeling HDA

    Hi guys. Sorry for late answer. It's known issue with H17.5. DM 1.5, which works only with H17.5, is in last beta stage. Please wait a bit.
  4. Houdini 18 Wishlist

    Improve hou.Handle class so it can be used to get\set handle orientation and position

  6. Transitory pivots houdini

    Turn on Follow Group checkbox in the RMB menu
  7. Direct Modeling HDA

    even without tweaking the settings, the menu now use the global UI size

    In upcoming v1.5.

    Symmetry is when you select components symmetrically, when you split polygons symmetrically, etc. Even with mirror option turned on in the Edit SOP, sculpt mode, for example, destroy symmetry information. But Sculpt SOP works well in this case. All this means that Houdini does not have usable symmetrical modeling.

    Please, give us the ability to invoke internal commands such as h.pane.gview.handle.xform.click_orient from Python. Currently I have a workaround to call them, but it would be good to have a native way

    Really? All DCCs have normal symmetrical modeling, but not Houdini.

    1. Nice curved wireframe for subdivided surfaces 2. Symmetry 3. Symmetry 4. Symmetry

    1. Add hou.ViewerEvent.ray() and hou.ViewerEvent.snappedRay() functionality to hou.GeometryViewport class to use it not only from custom states 2. Get mouse coordinates relative to the current viewport bottom left corner 3. Same as hou.ViewerEvent.snappedRay() but function (or argument) that returns real snapped position instead the viewport camera position, like hou.SceneViewer.selectPositions

    Most likely the price will be higher
  19. mapToWorld for non-single viewer layout

    How to use hou.GeometryViewport.mapToWorld() if the scene viewer is set to non-single layout. I can get mouse position with Qt, but can't calculate offset for different layouts. Works well in single persp mode
  20. Getting view 2d rect from 3d geometry

    Thanks! I'll try it.
  21. Getting view 2d rect from 3d geometry

    Can I get somehow 2d rect from SOP geometry using viewport transformation matrix?
  22. Direct Modeling HDA

    Can you explain in detail?
  23. Direct Modeling HDA

    Hi. It's almost done. But some ideas are changing, and now I can’t say anything concrete.
  24. Direct Modeling HDA

    DM 2.0 has: 1. 'Edit Mesh' menu which is not destructive and you can change values later 2. Modeler tool is fully Stash SOP based. Your geo container will die when you run Modeler tool DM 1.0 has only menu based non destructive modeling
  25. Polyextrude in a loop extrude distance by primitive attribute

    As noted above, it is better to use the local extrude feature. I just wanted to show how to do it in loop. Local extruding (without loop) has better performance.
