Hello, I've been using Houdini for close to two years now and in that time have gotten faily accomodated with the way the program behaves. However, one thing that up to this day is hard to get used to is the way the parameter syntax is set up in regards to expressions. The thing I mean in particular is how you need backticks for expressions in String parameters, but not in any others. I know there is an explanation to this, but as an artist this confuses me as soon as I didn't write an expression for two days because it doesn't get into my head. Just talking about intuitivity and learnability, I find that this just adds unneccessary confusion. I think somehow tweaking this would make all of Houdini just a tad nicer to work with, particularly in favour of those starting out with the program, as I know exactly that this issue was frustrating starting out. I just think it would make sense for expressions entered with a backtick to work in float parameters as well. I realize this is a tiny tiny issue that I'm ranting about here, but I just had to let off some steam because I just sat here for 20 minutes wondering why my expression wouldn't work. Cheers, Martin
