Re: Autodesk CEO and President Carl Bass steps down

..I can´t tell how I "dislike" those guys: "Switching over maintenance customers to subscription". Disgusting. All I can say.

Re: Modelling tools in Houdini

Hey guys! This threat was not meant as a wishlist. More like, if there is a modelling feature in Houdini, that seems similar to common workflows (not that procedural) one could post it here or, even better, do a little video, if there is nothing to find in the net. For those suggestions/wishes alrea...

Modelling tools in Houdini

Hey there! I just started to collect some videos, which makes it easier to see what is already working in Houdini. Feel free to add the videos you like concerning (none procedural, more classical) modelling! [media]https://vimeo.com/167152742[/media] [media]https://vimeo.com/167152583[/media] [media...

Re: Autodesk CEO and President Carl Bass steps down

Wow, that´s so funny. AD is great, yes, we got that, luceric. The problem is though, stock market´s and bankster´s crap does not make software any better. As we are a bunch of ignorant, truth denying idiots, I wonder why you don´t lean back with a smile and just let us starve in our dumb stupidity. ...

Re: Houdini 16

Well, nobody claimed it to be a generalist tool for now, or a replacement for XSI. H16 is not by now. It is still geared to more technical people. But, if you listened closely, I guess this release is a shout out to the competitors like: "Look, we are addressing stuff, we usually did not shine in." ...

Re: Softimage|XSI to SideFX Houdini

OK..pretty easy.
Put an "Attribute create" node after your model node.
Name the Attribute "Number" or what ever.
Set Class to "Primitive", Type to "Integer"
At Value type "$NVTX"
Now refer to the "Number" attribute in the VOP via the Bind node..done ;)

Re: Softimage|XSI to SideFX Houdini

OK. The attribute shows up, as it gets generated within the bind node. It does not exist prior to that. So, NVTX seems to be local variable used by certain nodes, as the vertext node. Currently no idea, how to transfer the local value to a global attribute, so you can access it via VOPs..I have to i...

Re: Softimage|XSI to SideFX Houdini

No problem..you can post the scene. Scenefiles can be opended by every version, they just "turn" Houdini in the version the scene file comes from..except for the full commercial version. Beside that, you will have to make sure, you are looking to the correct context in your spreadsheet. Now you are ...

Re: Softimage|XSI to SideFX Houdini

I´m no an expert, still learning, so, can you post the scene?
You can also check the "geometry spreadsheet" and check, if the values are there.

Re: "Get data" into vop-network?

Use the "Bind" node. If you want to export to a specific attribute, use the "Bind Export"...
By the way, I startet a "XSI to Houdini" thread some time ago..maybe we can put all these stuff in there?

cheers,
