Bend Tool Using Lattice

Recommended Posts

Hello odforce. I've enjoyed browsing the forum over recent weeks and the time has come to speak!

I'm working a bend tool which behaves differently to the Twist SOP. This tool uses a Lattice SOP to e.g. bend a tube into a torus. (I'm new to Houdini, so perhaps a similar tool already exists.)

The attached version uses a Point SOP to deform the control geometry. I'm also fine-tuning a version using 30 Transform SOPs to achieve the same effect. This works smoothly whereas the Point SOP version is relatively slow, with stepped pausing as it cooks.

I prefer the Point SOP version as it's a more elegant approach. Is there any way to increase its speed?

Anyway, I'll post the Transform SOP version when it's ready.

Thanks for the reply, I wouldn't have thought of vops as I've never used them . Time to explore new territory...
