Paint SOP to COP

Recommended Posts

Hello. I was wondering if someone could help out on how to export an image from a paint SOP and feed it to a COP network. I am building an HDA where the user will paint on a grid, specifying some terrain information. I want to take that information in COP apply a VEX filter and add some voronoi noise into it. I tried using the import node in a COP network inside the grid object, however the import node does not include the paint information. Any help will be much appreciated.

i don't know what import node in COPs you have in mind

but it's pretty straightforward in VOP COP2 Generator

example file included

Nice trick!

Can we get the data from cops back into sop points?

(I think Nick meant the geometry cop initially)

Thank you very much Tomas and Alex for your prompt reply. I am new to Houdini and I was unsure how to achieve this. I am actually trying to rewrite your vex cop generator but I am having a hard time at it... I edited the parameter interface and added the compiler tab. Still, I cannot dive in the node and create the vex network. I realize that this is a rookie question... Thank you again for your help.
