Vellum fiber constraint

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have 2 questions regarding the new vellum fiber constraints.

1. In the 'whats new in 17.5 houdini demo', they show a fiber groom tool (modified fur groom tool with fiber options), which actually doesnt exist. Not sure if its my install, but there is no info on it on help as well. Any one got to try that?

2. I want to multiply the stiffness attribute in the Vellum Constraint property DOP with an animated value coming from another SOP. I tried binding the external SOP  to the Input3 and tried accessing it in VEX

eg: stiffness = fit(@opinput2_curvelength,0,2,0,1000);

curvelength attribute is changing every frame, but its doesnt seem to get picked up. Any ideas on how to access an animated sop value?
