How to parent constrain objects

Recommended Posts

Hey,

In maya there is a parent contrain. It parents the rotation and transformation from one object to another. How do you do that in Houdini? I am confused, I see you can parent objects together and use the shelf tool blend. But they don't work, because the transformations are not at object level. Whats the point of having all these different constraints if your transformations are going to be made in sops and not object level? I am just trying to contrain a null to an alembic cache. Is it better to do animation a object level the geometry level? How can I get geometry level transformations into object level?

Thanks

Your transformations are not at sop (geometry) level but at the chop level , and the final output at the object level, so it's exactly what you want.

Why the constraint network is inside sop , i don't know , perhaps to mimic maya hierarchy ( as in the outliner).

What if I have transformations at sop level (a transform node animated) how do i get that animation to object level?
