Aligning Rotation to Normals Values

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Greetings all!

I need to align an object to a point (without using Copy SOPs). 

I found a short tutorial on this that uses a VOP SOP with "Align" and "Extract XForm" nodes. This works exactly as I'd like it to, but I need to rebuild it as it was created in Houdini NC, and is also a few years old so it appears some of the nodes have been deprecated.

I did my rebuild approximating the original file with non-deprecated nodes, however, I'm not getting the normal-to-rotation alignment I need and I'm at a loss for where to look to resolve this. Attached are screenshots, one derived  from original file (Non-commercial), the other is my re-build (Indie). The results in the Geometry Spreadsheet tell the story.

Respective .hipnc and .hiplc files are also attached.

Preemptive thank to any responders!
