  1. Houdini 18 Wishlist

    Ability to change tool settings (for example switching topobuild modes) with python. It will open a door to user defined tools with an extra interactivity

    Ok. So, the difference is only in auto snapping to screen plane?

    If you have no a mesh, you can connect Grid SOP to second input of the TopoBuild SOP. Grid SOP as projection plane. All I saw in the video I can repeat in H16.5

    Can't really understand what is PolyDraw (that creates old topobuild SOP). You can connect grid to second input of the TopoBuild SOP to produce same result. And where is magic?

    Exactly. A bit of python and your /OBJ network will works like Katana or Clarisse Builder. I think, you can also render images on the fly and preview it in the network editor, just like in Clarisse video

    DM 2.0. What's new: 1. We have now a complex modeling tool for artists called "Modeler" 2. Polygonal tools menu has been removed. Replaced with Modeler tool 3. Added a simple desktop "Modeler" - for Modeler maximized viewport mode 4. "Soft Boolean" tools moved to a separate shelf. Revamped main shelf 5. Removed deprecated DM 1.0 code and HDAs 6. DM is now called "Direct Modeling". Not "Direct Modeling HDA" --- What is Modeler tool? It is a brend new tool that replace old DM 1.0 modeling paradigm. Modeler has subtools like move, rotate, extrude, bevel, bridge, fill quads etc. But you are always in "Push" mode. It means that you can drag geometry with soft radius at any stage and use it in combination with other transformation tools. Main parts of Modeler tool: a. Always available "Push" mode b. Quick splitting with Ctrl+LMB. No need for separate split tool c. Advanced point selection with RMB and other hotkeys. d. Transformation tools: move, rotate, scale, grab (Blender like), aligned grab, resize, lattice, ramp deform, align etc e. Destructive modeling tools: extrude, bevel, bridge, delete, collapse, fill quads, create polygon and others f. History tools: Walk through history, bake (delete) history, clean history, etc g. Navigation improvements: Align camera to the best view plane h. And much more. --- Currently DM 2.0 is in alpha stage

  20. Starting out Modelling in Houdini - Experiencing basic issues

    It is only OSX problem. I'll try to fix your problem in the next update. But it will be much easier if someone with osx will record video. I should see menu behavior in action. Thanks
  21. Starting out Modelling in Houdini - Experiencing basic issues

    Isleofgough, I need video to analyze what is wrong.
  22. Starting out Modelling in Houdini - Experiencing basic issues

    1. Old menu - 44 tools. Can have maximum 44 tools 2. New menu - 42 tools, 48 max So the new menu just optimized for six future DM tools and have another cells geometry (48 cells) Again. Last DM update should work well with not old Houdini 16.5 build.

    Show wireframe on model subdivided with '+' shortcut: subdivision wireframe example
  24. Houdini 17 Wishlist

    Lazy selection like in Modo or at least ability to change selection click box size (to select components in the air). It can speedup modeling a lot modo lazy selection example video
