Houdini 16.5 Nodes VEX networks

CVEX Type VOP network

CVEX is VEX code that runs outside a context.

For example, you can use a CVEX shader to modify guide hairs for fur. Houdini calls the CVEX program with all the attributes on the geometry and the program can modify them, such as P to modify point positions.
