Attribute transfer node does not transfer normals

Recommended Posts

I am currently following a tutorial “Houdini isn't scary” which is about replacing a scatter node with a DOP system via a switch node. The problem is that the “attribute transfer” node does not transfer the normals of the geometry to the DOP system. i have actually followed the steps in the tutorial exactly.

I do not know the tutorial that you were following but anyway, you deleted the whole geometry on your delete sop so it was not carrying anything - the groups from the extrude sop are primitives not points. Also on the normal SOP you should be computing the normals on pts, not the vertices. 

Here is a fixed file for you
