Houdini Main Changelogs

Houdini 19.0.451 The OP Notify TOP can now trigger a reload button on the target node, when work items in the TOP node cook. yesterday
Houdini 19.0.451 Fixing an issue where two badly named VOP nodes (eg "1foo" and "1foo") would translate to the same USD prim ("_foo). yesterday
Houdini 19.0.451 Fixed a case where the new viewport mipmap generation for cubemaps could cause a crash. yesterday
Houdini 19.0.450 Background Plate LOP now splits the reflection occlusion from the shadow aov. Promoted metallic, reflectivity, roughness and ior background shader parms for easier tweaking. When Glossy Reflection aov is disabled, the shader becomes diffuse only. Emission and Glosst Reflection aovs off by default. yesterday

Houdini 19.0.451 Fixed issues with incorrect USD Shader input types, deduced from parameters set to default values on a VOP node that has several signatures, and therefore potentially different input types for each of them. yesterday
Houdini 19.0.451 Fixed issues with disconnected inputs on the USD Shader primitives, when switching VOP node signatures. yesterday
