Houdini Main Changelogs

Houdini 6.0.253 Fixed boneconvert for no kinematics bone chains. Fri. March 28, 2003
Houdini 6.0.253 Added environment variable HOUDINI_NOHKEY. If this is set, then a license check failure will no longer cause the license manager to launch. Fri. March 28, 2003
Houdini 6.0.253 Added a new option (-L) to opgls which is similar to the -l option, except it suppresses the output of the group names. This makes this command easier to use as part of an expression. Fri. March 28, 2003
Houdini 6.0.253 Fixed crash that could happen if a Pose handle was attached to a No Kinematics bone chain within a subnet and then the subnet's display flag was turned off. Fri. March 28, 2003
Houdini 6.0.253 Can now undo interactively added and removed ramp points. Fri. March 28, 2003
Houdini 6.0.253 Fixed bug in the cop scale handle which would always cause it to return a positive scale. Unfortunately, it still does not transition between positive and negative. Fri. March 28, 2003
Houdini 6.0.253 Fixed core dumps when using the Geometry Viewer (gplay) to view geometry with indirect SHOP attributes. Thu. March 27, 2003
Houdini 6.0.252 The Brush SOPs, Paint, CapturePaint, Comb, and Sculpt, all now obey pressure sensitivity from tablets such as the Wacom under Windows. Thu. March 27, 2003
Houdini 6.0.252 Loading a single channel grey-scale image in a file COP will now give you all 3 channels to play with. Thu. March 27, 2003
Houdini 6.0.252 Fixed problems with loading locked operator definitions that contained unknown node types. Instead of silently failing, and simply not creating the erroneous nodes, we now create stand-in nodes (just as loading a hip file does). An error dialog is also created to show the errors that occurred during loading. Thu. March 27, 2003
Houdini 6.0.252 Added three new commands, otcontentadd, otcontentdelete, and otcontentls for managing extra content that can be added to an operator definition. These three commands provide the same functionality as the Edit Contents dialog that is accessible from the Operator Type Manager. Thu. March 27, 2003
Houdini 6.0.252 Fixed potentially dangerous situation where the image cache in mplay would try to decrement the reference count on an image it had already marked as cleared. Thu. March 27, 2003
Houdini 6.0.252 Added an option to the Operator Type Manager which tells Houdini to create a backup copy of any operator type library that it modifies. The backup mechanism works just like the Make Numbered Backup mechanism for hip files. Thu. March 27, 2003
Houdini 6.0.252 On Windows the Mouse CHOP now supports input from Wacom tablets. Thu. March 27, 2003
Houdini 6.0.252 Fixed bug where the point SOP would not correctly evaluate time based expressions in the instance parameter. Thu. March 27, 2003
Houdini 6.0.252 Fixed sporadic layout problem in the left SOP/OBJ viewer toolbar where the modelling selectors would not show the top two buttons. Thu. March 27, 2003
Houdini 6.0.252 Fixed subnet object bug introduced after build 242 where the output transform no longer got cooked if only its control parameters were modified. Thu. March 27, 2003
Houdini 6.0.252 Channel copy plane parameters are no longer stored as ints, and hence are not order dependent on the incoming planes. Thu. March 27, 2003
Houdini 6.0.251 Adding new options to the pane command to create floating panes and to add a pane at the right. Wed. March 26, 2003
Houdini 6.0.251 Made particle sliding much better behaved over moving geometry. Wed. March 26, 2003
Houdini 6.0.251 Fixed some problems with quoted strings being used as default parameter values, in callback scripts, and in disable specifications in the Type Properties dialog Parameters page. Wed. March 26, 2003
Houdini 6.0.251 Fixed potential core dumps when trying to add nodes to a locked subnet operator from within the viewport. Wed. March 26, 2003
Houdini 6.0.251 If Houdini 6 detects a Houdini 5.5 hserver on unix, it will stop the old hserver and start a version 6 hserver. (hserver 6 will work with both Houdini 5.5 and Houdini 6.) Wed. March 26, 2003
Houdini 6.0.251 Fixed some more crashing bugs with the new popnet SOP. Wed. March 26, 2003
Houdini 6.0.251 Fixed a bug where deleting an operator definition from the Embedded OTL in the Operator Type Manager would not update the contents properly. Previously it would appear as if the definition had not been deleted. Wed. March 26, 2003
