Show curve thickness in viewport

Recommended Posts

Houdini's hairgen node displays the hair polygon lines with thickness defined by the width point attribute. How can I visualise this in the viewport on normal curves/polygon lines?

I have seen that Tim Van Helsdingen did previously search for this feature too, on Discord.

@Timvanhelsdingen excuse me that I summon you. Please, did you solve this? Or somebody will ask SESI then.

On the Geo node; Misc -> Shade Open Curves In Viewport. Also make sure that Display Options -> Geometry -> Shade Open Curves is turned on.

This is what the Hairgen object enables to get the ribbon effect for curves. You can also change "Display As:" to "SubD Surface/Curves" to get the smooth curves as well.

This is magic, thank you very very much! I wasn't able to find it.

(btw, also for the others, the required point attribute is @width)
