Hello, newbie here. I'm following an old tutorial and in order to delete closed/un-closed primitives the guy created an attribute called "closed" which is then referenced in a delete node. He uses $CLOSED in the delete node but when I do the same it shows it as an error. Is this a deprecated way of calling the attribute? I tried @CLOSED instead and that seamed to work but I have troubles further down the line and I'm trying to figure out if this makes a difference.
Hi everyone! I'm relatively new to Houdini, and I came across a tutorial which explained the bullet solver for H13. I am trying to recreate the effect that he got at 53:15, where primitives were deleted from the constraint network when a force over a certain threshold was applied. tutorial: As I understand, the SOP solver was changed in H14, and I therefore don't have the object merge node that he has. I downloaded the example HIP file and copied his node into my own project and managed to get it working, however I'd like to know how it actually works, rather than just copying and pasting! The data that the node is bringing in, is as follows: `stamps("..", "DATAPATH", chsop("relnode") + ":Relationships/" + chs(chsop("relnode") + "/relname") + "/" + chs(chsop("relnode") + "/relationship/dataname") + "/Geometry")` This isn't like anything I've come across so far in houdini - if anyone knows what this means, and could explain it I'd be very grateful! Best, Stephen
