Ramp Parameter node returning 0

Recommended Posts



I'm following this tutorial: https://www.sidefx.com/tutorials/vops-vex-and-ramps/?collection=66

Around 22:30, he uses a ramp parameters node inside an attribute VOP. The problem ofr me, is that my ramp always returns 0.

I have set it as a spline ramp (float), converted it to a vector 3 (plugging the same output in all 3 values). Also, the color of the connection is not the same as the output "circle".

Edit: Well i'm an idiot. It's not the same color because the node is selected... However the other problem still persist.


Here is the file: SideFX_Tutorials2.hipnc


Is this a bug or i'm doing something wrong? I'm using 18.5

Found reason for colored connection lines.

Okay I found out that if I change the name, the ramp will update and work...

So everytime I make a change to the spline ramp, I need to change the name of the node. If I don't, nothing happens. Is it supposed to work like that?


Edit: After a little bit of troubleshooting, I found out that in order for it to work, you need to get out of the attribute VOP node, and change the ramp in that node parameters instead.
