  1. i'm just starting out learning houdini and i'm completely and utterly in love with it. i'm going through a beginner training series that's currently demonstrating how to make icicles hanging from a roof. i believe the training was made in houdini 12, and i managed to follow it just fine in houdini 14 apprentice. i recently upgraded to v15 though and decided to back track on the training, but i'm not getting the same results. the way the training explains it is: - start out with a grid and a line - grid -> transform to put in place where roof is - transform -> mountain to create deformations - mountain -> paint on grid to create black and white image where icicles will form - paint -> scatter points using paint color (Cd) as density - scatter -> point1 sets normal downward - point1 -> point2 randomizes scale length of line through the particles -> add scale - line facing down z-axis - line -> resample for extra detail - resample -> copy (left) and point -> copy (right) to create lots of lines with differing lengths hanging downward - copy -> particleFluidSurface (left) that SHOULD make blobby shapes around lines that then get shaped into icicles. from what I understand particleFluidSurface generates a fluid on the surface of points based on the pscale attribute, which was made in point2. when i middle click on point2 i can see the pscale attribute, but the attribute is missing when i middle click on the copy sop. i'm going to attach the hipnc file in case i didn't do an adequate job explaining what's happening. everything happens in icicles_GEO. any help/direction/clarification would be appreciated. thanks so much!
