Last point from an imported curve gets deletedHello, I have quick question here, bases on the current situation. I've made a series of curves on Illustrator, and I'm gonna be feeding them to a File node. Problem is last point (or first, I should check on Illustrator) of every curve doesn't get loaded. Is this a common thing? I find it quite odd, and it's there from the File node; nowhere down the pipeline it gets deleted by some of the nodes. Any fix? I attach an image of the network, plus one with how the curve looks at these nodes. Thanks in advance!
Referencing a string array item in a File path
Manuloti posted a topic in Tools (HDA's etc.)Hello ODFORCE community! First time around here and I hope you can help me with a rather simple(?) case of referencing an attribute to a node. So my situation is the following: I'm trying to feed a number of pre-made curves (from Illustrator) into a File node. In order to do so, I thought I could build a string array in an attribute (detail) wrangle, with the paths to the .ai files, and then extract each file path by feeding a chi() to select each array item. So far so good. What I've noticed is that File nodes don't store data. Is that correct? I connected the attrib wrangle and I couldn't see any attributes (I tested on other node in case was a coding mistake, but they worked fine). So... that's when I land in this question of how to import data in the file path of a File node (Geometry File is the name). I attach 3 snapshots. One with the mentioned nodes,a second one with the array (I've only included one file path xD, just testing) and a last one with the error showed in the File node. I tried adding the "`" "to_feed" is the attribute wrangle "ref_string" the attribute "0" as... I'm retriving the the index = 0 of the array? That one I don't have it clear Anyways, doesn't work : / Is there a way to make it work? Can I retrieve a non-connected attribute into a File node geo path? Alternatives? Thanks in advance!
Adobe Illustrator file to Geometry
nijhun posted a topic in General Houdini QuestionsHi - Has anyone tried to importing adobe illustrator file and solve removing holes inside the typography? (screenshot on imported logo) I couldn't find simpler solution, so I ended up just manually blasting 'primitives' inside the typography, and then polyextrude both typography and holes separately before boolean subtracting as solid objects. I also just 'remeshed' the whole thing to deal w/ surface normal for texturing. I wonder if anyone knows simpler approach to this? Best, Jin
Houdini like Illustrator and much moreThank you, Karsten Schmidt. Happy New Year https://github.com/thi-ng/vexed-generation
How to import open vector of ai to Houdini?
I'm trying to set up a structure that allows me to import 2D images, PNG/Jpegs into Houdini. Side FX has documentation for this: http://www.sidefx.com/docs/houdini11.0/io/ai Researching this i came across a couple of tutorials, saying that if you want use images you should go for .eps files This is the tutorial i tried to follow, since it covers the Adobe softwares: I'm not sure what's going wrong, whenever i upload my images there doesn't seem to be an error, but I just can't find my imported asset. Any ideas? Cheers, Callan de Keijzer Desktop.zip
