I've been going through the tutorials listed on the SideFX website for Houdini lately, and I've had an issue with the first tutorial in Procedural Modeling where Ari is making a hose that follows a Path CV object. My issue is that no matter what I do when creating the path, my normals are not aligned along the curve as his are in the downloaded scene files. Instead, the normals of all points point perpendicular to the path. This causes issues later when trying to manipulate the path to pull the end points in/out to carve them and create tension. Instead of having the desired effect of moving the points in or out along the path, they move along the Y-axis, which is how the normals appear to be oriented. I can't find any steps that I've missed, having combed over the lecture yesterday, and cannot find any options to change how the normals are oriented. As well as this, all my attempts to correct the issue have failed, including manipulating the normals in a VOP, trying to use a Point SOP to change them, and experimenting with the Polyframe node. What am I missing? Thanks heaps for the help, this one has me stumped and I can't figure out if I just missed an important step, did something stupid, or am suffering at the hands of Houdini 14 when he used Houdini 12 for this tutorial.
