How to use paint with mountain node

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, first day of using houdini so please bear with me if this is a rookie mistake.

I have a simple grid with a mountain node. I want to control height parameter of the mountain node with paint node. So I am doing this:

  1. Create grid (row/col = 200x200)
  2. Paint "h" attribute in paint node
  3. Try to use "h" attribute in "height" parameter. 

I am stuck in step 3. When I try to reference "@h" in the height parameter it doesn't work.

So what I am doing wrong? How do I use my painted attribute to drive the height parameter in mountain node?

Check out this thread. You need to use special named attributes to change the values.
